Shreyas Indian Yoga Retreats
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.
Shreya's Retreat is located 35km North West of Bangalore in India,50km from Bangalore International Airport and 7km from Nelemangala Town on the way to the famous Lrod Shani temple.The landscape is flat and dotted with small lakes which are full of lotus flowers. The luxury retreat only has 12 accommodations and organic gardens.
Why is it a Sanctuary
Indian yoga retreats tend to be either authentic and basic or luxurious and superfluous. Shreya's has all the authenticity of an ashram with the hard work! Expect really great yoga instruction, meditation to calm the mind, some new yogic techniques and even some community service. Cleansing for the soul!
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.
The organic garden, the sacred chants before lovingly preparing the food says it all. Shreya's really do care about what you put into your body. Cuisine inspire from chef travels includes Mexican, Continental, Oriental and of course Indian vegetarian dishes. Menu's are all tailor made after consultation with the in house Ayurvedic doctor, with all allergies catered to. Following yogic principles, food is fresh, light and nutritious.
