Location

This retreat will take place in Hinterland Village. With seven acres of lush greenery, it is a haven of rich native biodiversity and an oasis of peace on the outskirts of the city of Kochi. Hinterland Village boasts more than 180 native species of flora that grow abundantly and naturally throughout the year. The Bodhi center at Hinterland Village was an initiative undertaken by its founder, Unni, to promote yoga and Ayurveda. Unni’s desire was to create a space where guests and visitors could immerse themselves in spiritual practices in a peaceful and natural environment.

The Bodhi Ayurveda and Yoga center at Hinterland Village is a spiritual paradise set amidst jungle giants overlooking a paddy field. The space around the Bodhi Ayurveda and Yoga center is a paradise for bird watching and nature walks. The resort also has a swimming pool set amongst the greens so guests can cool off from the South Indian heat. Hinterland Village takes pleasure in harmonizing with nature and guests are encouraged to do the same.

As the name Bodhi suggests, the aim of the retreat is to seek enlightenment regarding one’s own body and mind. As humanity often strives in chaos, Bodhi, or one's awakening, is an essential journey that everyone eventually has to take. In this sense, constant efforts are made to provide the most comfortable space for guests to practice yoga, to enjoy the special treatments, and to engage in the mutual exchange of ideas and thoughts.
