 BAREFOOT BEACHFRONT

YOGA IN KERALA WINTER 2015

28th February - 7th March

From £750.00 per person

(all prices excludes flights, transfer and insurance cover)

     

Keen to escape the final throws of the British winter, I have found a stunning beachside setting for our next Indian yoga holiday this time in northern Kerala. On this bespoke yoga holiday we can immerse ourselves in a whole range of relaxing activities, including Ayurvedic treatments, therapies and massages, fabulous walks along Kerala's swathes of spotless white sand beaches. We can arrange boat rides in its famous backwaters, enjoy wonderful freshly prepared local cuisine and swim in the warm waters of the Arabian sea or the resort's beachside pool. Your time with us here can be a stand alone holiday in its own right or form part of a more extensive winter trip to this fabulous region of Southern India.

  

For local colour and atmosphere there are historical towns to visit and unearth a treasure trove of Indian fashions, fabrics, spices and jewellery, there is the possibility to arrange early morning boating to watch the dolphins and afternoon tea spent lounging on the palm fringed beaches. There are temples and ancient monuments, history and culture.

This attractive beachside Ayurvedic resort is located in northern Kerala well away from more touristy southern resorts and is in between Nileshwar and Bekal beaches. It provides beautiful garden bungalows in typical Keralan inspired style, with air-conditioning, comfortable furnishings and a restaurant serving delicious locally inspired food with a French twist. Here we can enjoy yoga at sunrise and sunset on the tranquil shores of the Arabian sea or in the resort's newly built yoga shala. Every bungalow offers a view of the sea through the palm trees and the pool.

 

If you are looking for a boutique, barefoot and relaxed yoga holiday with everything you need catered for then this is definitely the answer you've been looking for.  

 

When you're not enjoying practicing yoga, which as always will comprise the spectrum between dynamic and deeply restorative yoga gently, you can do as much or as little as you please. You may wish to indulge yourself in the raft of treatments, massages and therapies on site to help you to relax completely or simply hang out on the terrace of your pretty little Keralan bungalow under the palms.

       

The cost of the holiday includes; 10 yoga sessions of different lengths and contents - one in the morning and one in the late afternoon. Breakfast every day of your stay and 5 evening meals, giving us the chance to go and try some of the other local restaurants. Morning yoga will be followed by breakfast of fresh organic juices, fresh village bread, fresh coffee, tea, eggs, cereals, fresh fruits and yoghurt. 

      

Trips can be arranged, such as fishing, dolphin watching, adventure sports, bird-watching, it can even be arranged for elephants to come and visit us at our resort. We can take a back water trip or visit a plantation. There is WiFi, an inexpensive 24 hour taxi service and jeep hire available locally for guests to take themselves off to wherever they please. Airport transfers can also be arranged with the hotel.

Additional meals can also be arranged as can packed lunches for days out. Guests wishing to stay extra nights are welcome to do so at extra cost subject to availability of cottages. Please ask if you would like to arrange this.

The cost per person for 7 nights sharing is £750.00 and £990.00 single occupancy.
