About This Event
Join us in one of the spiritual centers of South India for 10 glorious days of yoga, meditation, and local culture at a beautiful, remote, and peaceful location in nature, in short, the ideal retreat environment. Hosted by Ashok Tree, an idyllic yoga retreat center just outside the temple town of Tiruvannamalai, every detail has been carefully considered to maximize your relaxation, comfort, and wellness. Experience authentic, expert yoga and meditation instruction that will balance you as needed in a purpose-built facility that harmonizes perfectly with the surrounding landscape; delicious, healthy, organic vegetarian sattvic meals; local treks and tours to nature and sites of spiritual and cultural interest; Ayurvedic treatments at the wellness centre; and nature walks around the beautifully manicured grounds to view diverse wildlife. This 10-day retreat will give you the opportunity to fully release into your yoga & meditation practice, recharge your body and mind, and realign with your Self.
Venue HighlightsWe believe that reconnecting with nature is part of the yoga retreat experience. Ashok Tree covers 13 acres of land on the edge of a village, which is on the outskirts of the town of Tiruvannamalai in South India. The land has been transformed over the past few years into a homeland for many new and returning species, with increasingly diverse flora & fauna. There are several fields of orchards and farmland growing many types of fruits and vegetables.
Nestled in between the gardens, orchards, and fields, the facilities for the yoga and meditation retreat include a large open-air Yoga shala, Meditation bowl, and temple area. Also on the Ashok Tree grounds is the Sita Devi Charity School, which educates around 100 primary school children per year, incorporating yoga and meditation into the curriculum. Karma yoga at Sita Devi is one of many optional daytime activities during the retreat.
