An eight day and seven night Ashtanga Yoga Retreat with KPJAYI Certified teacher Andrew Hillam, assisted by Veronique Tan, (KPJAYI authorized Level 2). This retreat will focus on the integration of all the elements of ashtanga yoga, philosophy, chanting and satsang. 

The retreat is held at the very special SwaSwara Eco Resort, chosen for its specialization in holistic treatments including Ayurveda & Naturopathy with a setting in the stunning natural environment of pristine South Indian coastal forest. Release, relax, slow down and learn to listen to and reflect on your inner voice or “Swara.” SwaSwara Eco Resort is the perfect place to deepen all aspects of your yoga practice and reconstruct your body, mind and spirit, creating balance and harmony within.

Daily morning chanting and Ashtanga Led and Mysore Classes are complimented by afternoon satsang, delving into yoga philosophy, discussions and asana technique sessions. During the day you can schedule Ayurvedic massage and naturopathy treatments and take Ayurvedic cooking classes or meditative art classes. Enjoy the beach or the pool or take a boat ride to the local village of Gokarna.


Accommodation is in individual villas with private courtyards and private outdoor showers, each one a sanctuary in it’s own right.
