Retreat Date November 17 – 26 w/ Kath Pullum
Release, Recharge, Realign Yoga Retreat with Kath Pullum – 10 Days Retreat in India
Yoga Retreat in India? Imagine stepping outside of your normal routine for 10 glorious yoga retreat days, awakening to the sun rising over holy Mount Arunachala, followed by a nice invigorating morning yoga practice, and then a delicious healthy breakfast. And that is just the start. Local treks and tours and Ayurvedic treatments at the on-site wellness centre fill the day. More yoga and meditation practices, more scrumptious food, and social activities round out the evenings. Add to that a beautiful, remote, and peaceful location in nature to make this the ideal retreat environment. This 10-day retreat will give you the opportunity to fully release into your yoga & meditation practice, recharge your body and mind, and realign with your Self.
Yoga Retreat Daily Routine
Kath will guide you in twice daily workshops with Prana Kriya Yoga in the morning, Himalayan Hatha Yoga in the evening and Meditation during the day. Through these practices and engagement with nature you will realise a deepening awareness of self, inner and outer alignment, and strength. Each day’s programme will help you to deepen your understanding of body & mind and to create harmony between both.
Yoga Retreat Host – Kath Pullum
A lifelong athlete and practicing yogini for over 15 years, Kath finally decided to become a trained yoga teacher after finishing a PhD and discovering that the yoga she was practicing was more fulfilling than the academic subjects she was studying and teaching. Retaining a passion for education and knowledge-sharing and a strong grounding in physical fitness, her teaching style both nurtures and encourages students while challenging them to expand beyond their perceived personal limitations. Having trained closely with Yogi Ashokananda since 2014, she has qualified under him to teach Himalayan Hatha Yoga (200hrs), Prana Kriya Yoga (200hrs), and pranayama and meditation (100hrs). She has taught individual and group classes and workshops in the USA, UK, India, Sri Lanka, Cambodia, and Thailand.
Location Information – Yogiville India
At Yogiville India, we are quite traditional with our approach. For example, the food prepared is grown onsite or locally, is organic, and follows sattvic principles. We see yoga as a way of life, not just a physical practice, and the approach we take to nutrition / food is just one example.
Another is the natural environment which will support the retreat. We believe that reconnecting with nature is part of the yoga retreat experience. Yogiville covers 13 acres of land on the edge of a village, which is on the outskirts of the town of Tiruvannamalai in South India. The land has been transformed over the past few years into a homeland for many new and returning species, with increasingly diverse flora & fauna. We have several fields of orchards and farmland growing many types of fruits and vegetables to feed our guests, workers, and cows.
Nestled in between the gardens, orchards, and fields, the facilities for the yoga and meditation retreat include a large open-air Yoga shala, Meditation bowl, and temple area. Also on the Ashok Tree grounds is the Sita Devi Charity School, which educates around 100 primary school children per year, incorporating yoga and meditation into the curriculum. Karma yoga at Sita Devi is one of many optional daytime activities during the retreat.
Private & shared rooms available, all en-suite and air condition fitted in some rooms. All with views of Arunachala to view the stunning sunrises and with views to the west. Ground floor rooms with veranda and 1st floor rooms with balconies.
All of our organic food is grown onsite, locally and our kitchen follows sattvic principles, i.e. all vegetarian, no eggs, no onion, no garlic & no mushrooms. We serve 3 daily healthy meals offered all prepared at time of meal in our onsite Ananda Kitchen. The most amazing seasonal fruit is available throughout the day to snack on along with chai, herbal teas (some grown onsite) & water. All drinking water and water used in our kitchen is bottled mineral water.
We are served by three airports in the region, Chennai, Bangalore and Trichy (Tiruchirappalli). Chennai Airport Transfers included in Fee, other airport transfers can be arranged at an additional cost.
