India: January 2020
Dewalokam Home Stay & Retreat, Kerala, Southern India
6 January – 12 January 2020
A week (6 nights / 7 days) of yoga, relaxation and meditation.
This will be the fourth year in a row that we will be returning to wonderful Dewalokam – a fully sustainable organic farm and retreat on the banks of the river Kannadipuzha and situated in the lush, green Keralan countryside, 90 minutes drive from Cochin airport.
Our hosts, Jose and Sinta, and their delightful team make us feel like we are part of the family. It is a very special place and a very special experience.
We will be practicing our yoga in an open air shala by the river, surrounded by the beautiful gardens. I will be teaching 3 classes a day with a mixture of dynamic and restorative asana (poses), pranayama (breathing techniques) and meditation. To add to our yogic experience, I am also inviting an Indian yoga master to lead a few of the sessions.
All rooms are twin/doubles with airconditioning and ensuite facilities. All rooms have tea and coffee making facilities and a fridge in your room has bottled water which is replenished daily.
The rooms all lead onto a large verandah overlooking the gardens and the river.
The food is divine. The owners are passionate about food and during the week we sample the best of Keralan cuisine prepared by the excellent in house professional chef..You will be nourished with three meals each day using organic home grown vegetables ,spices and dairy produce and all diets and food preferences can be catered for.
Cookery demonstrations are offered on most evenings.
A host of other experiences awaits you – swimming in the river, walking in the tropical forest, cycling to the nearby village, shopping in nearby Thodupuzha or just lying back in a hammock and looking forward to your next Ayurvedic massage!
The choice is yours.
