Join Zephyr for this 10 day/9 night (or 14 day/14 night) adventure in Southern India. The 10 day retreat will be held at Yogiville located between Bangalore and Chennai in the rural surroundings of Tiruvannamalai, in the state of Tamil Nadu, with an optional further adventure to Mysore, Karnataka.
All classes will be led by Zephyr with help from assistants. Morning classes in the main shala will be Mysore-style Ashtanga practice. Beginners are welcome but prior experience with the practice is recommended to get the most from the retreat. Daily meditation, chanting, self inquiry and philosophy sessions will take place in the magical buddha bowl. The afternoons will be a mix of pranayama, yin/restorative approaches, philosophy talks and technique sessions. They will be tailored to the relevance of the group and influenced by the wisdom of Ayurveda in line with Yogiville’s vision.
In between time spent on the mat, we will explore local temples and caves including the Sri Ramana Ashram, a sunrise hike to Mt. Arunachala and the Girivalam full moon festival.
The retreat provides exceptional vegetarian food, a wellness centre for consultations and traditional Ayurvedic massage, various hammocks and places to relax and a pool. It really is a very special place with incredible hospitality including a final evening Puja and party in traditional dress.
