Shreyas Indian Yoga Retreats

Bangalore, India

Shreyas luxury yoga retreats in India with meditation and ayurveda

Shreya’s luxury Indian yoga retreats has a philosophy Athithi devo bhava’ which literally means ‘A guest is to be served as God’. We love the way the staff pray and chant prior to cooking and the yoga teachers practice the spiritual discipline by honouring their students well.

Shreya’s Indian Yoga Retreats is located 35km on North West of Bangalore City in India. It is surrounded by small villafes and farm land, dotted with lotus flower filled lakes. We love the road leading into the luxury retreat which is lines with ancient banyan trees, home to local monkeys.

Both Hatha Yoga and Ashtanga Yoga are taught in an authentic Ashram style (minus the rigorous work expected in an Ashram!). Expect daily yoga, meditation, chanting classes, a strict vegetarian organic diet and some local community service. If you feel you’d like to do a spot of spiritual self discovery, then a teacher will offer you guidance.

We love that all yoga packages include yoga classes, pranayama, meditation and also yoga nidra (yogic deep sleep), sacred chanting, kriya and rejuvenating massages. If you’re looking for a yoga holiday which is based in ancient yogic tradition we’d suggest joining one of the programs here.

Expect really great yoga instruction, meditation to calm the mind, some new yogic techniques and even some community service. Cleansing for the soul!

Treatments

Rejuvenating spa treatments are included in all yoga holiday packages including Thai, Balinese and Swedish massages. However we'd suggest opting for their Ayurvedic treatments which are fantastic. You can also learn Yoga Nidra (a deep relaxation technique) and Yogic Kriyas such as Jala Neti and Vaman Dhauti.
