Monsoon Yoga Retreat Program

The classes are based on the different yogic systems. Some of the classes are more physical and vigorous and some are more recuperative and relaxing.

All classes are optional. After all, this is a holiday not a boot camp! It is fine if you decide to sleep or spend more time on the beach in the afternoon. A big part of yoga is listening to your body's needs and a holiday is also about rest and recharging.

All yoga classes are held in English and there will always be two teachers (Abhilash and Priyanka) to ensure a correct performance and to attend individual needs. We will be concentrating on all ailments related to a human body, mind and soul. For sure, it will be an amazing experience and you will leave this place filled with Love and joy.
