Yoga Camp SPECIAL in Kerala over Christmas and New Year
15 days Yoga and Ayurveda
Number of participants: 4 to 16 participants
Requirements: 3 von 10
Please be prepared for simple but clean tent accommodation with shared bathrooms. Almost all activities take place outside. The yoga classes are suitable for all levels.
Our yoga camp in Kerala is located in the middle of a tea and spice plantation in the Western Ghats near a village called Suryanelli. It is a very secluded place, away from the main tourism and just perfect for a relaxing yoga stay.
Surrounded by hills and close to a lake, this place offers many attractions and activities nearby. During the day we take you on small hikes, for a visit of a tea factory and a local home, walks to spice and tea plantations and much more.
There will be morning and afternoon yoga and meditation classes and changing activities and workshops during the day. In the evening we will enjoy Kirtan singing, satsang, small lectures or meditation.
The camp is simple but beautiful. We will stay in comfortable and spacious tents with proper beds.
Showers and toilets are shared. A hot water supply is available.
The camping team will provide us with fresh and tasty vegetarian food three times a day. Fresh herbal tea and drinking water will always be available. A massage therapist is also available in the camp and offers optional massages daily.
The last 3 days of the retreat we will take you on a Mini Trip. First we will visit the beautiful canals of the backwaters. Here we take a kayak tour and live in a resort. For two more nights we stay at a luxurious Ayurveda Beach Resort for a little vacation before heading home.
