KERALA INDIA, 24th November to 8th December 2018

After 2 successful retreats in Varkala, India, The Secret Space is pleased to announce that the next one will take place in beautiful Kovalam from November 24th to December 8th 2018. The retreat will be led once again by Yoga teacher Elly and assisted by Lori.

Located on Lighthouse Beach, students will be able to enjoy 2 yoga sessions a day on a rooftop shala overlooking palm tree jungle and the ocean. The morning session will be more dynamic with a choice of Ashtanga or Hatha yoga. The afternoon sessions will focus more on unwinding and relaxing. Altogether students will receive 6 morning sessions and 4 afternoon sessions per week allowing 2 afternoons off to relax and explore. As well as being taught by both Elly and Lori there will be sessions led by a local teacher. There’ll also be the opportunity to indulge in massage therapy treatments which compliment the practice and will help the body to open and heal. Shiatsu, Reflexology, Deep Tissue and Thai Yoga massage will all be on offer.

Kovalam is a safe and friendly town located right on the beach. Students will be able to swim in the sea, relax on the beach, practice their bartering in the local shops and explore the area with ease.

The retreat is designed to allow you to deepen your yoga practice in its country of origin whilst allowing you time to enjoy and explore a wonderful part of India at the same time. This is a unique experience for all levels of practitioner…

Please note this is NOT a luxury retreat. India is a very poor country. To local people our house will be like a palace, but don’t expect everything to be perfect! It will be clean, safe and beautiful but also fairly basic.

On your days off you are welcome to explore the local attractions.
