Ayurveda, Yoga and Cultural Retreat

Kerala, South India
Relax, heal and rejuvenate your body, mind and soul
January 2024

Come and join us for this 18 day escape to the tropical paradise of Kerala, a land of coconut palms, warm sandy beaches, traditional villages and quiet backwaters, a part of India known as “God’s own country.” During the retreat, you will be staying at Greens Ayurveda and Yoga Health Retreat where you will be nourished by warm oil massages, lovingly prepared, delicious vegetarian food made from fresh local ingredients and the richness of ancient Keraliyan culture – all the right ingredients to calm your mind and relax your body.

On arrival you will meet your Ayurvedic physician and be given an individually tailored 16 days Ayurvedic treatment plan. A plan designed to promote both detoxification and rejuvenation and treat any health imbalances you may have. Each day begins with a blissful, gentle yoga and meditation class followed by a delicious breakfast. Afternoons include cultural experiences, Ayurvedic cooking classes, educational talks to help you integrate Ayurvedic principles into your daily life back home, swims at the local beach or quiet time to rest and reflect depending on your inclination. Be assured that Greens Ayurveda and Yoga Health Retreat will do their very best to make sure all your needs are met!

The retreat provides an assortment of local cultural experiences including a temple festival, a craft village visit, an in-house South Indian dance performance and many more. The back water cruise in a houseboat and a two-day trip to the mountainous forest area of Wayanad in the Western Ghats gives a unique experience to soak in the tranquillity of nature. You can visit Ayurvedic spice farms, nature reserve and even walk up to an ancient Neolithic cave with 6,000- year-old rock engravings.
