Enjoy a vacation before Christmas in Kerala, South India. Get away from the cold and the Christmas rush and give yourself time to relax, unwind, and explore another country and another culture. You will have the chance to practice yoga twice daily with Sivan, early morning meditation with Karen and mindfulness with Maggie. Karen and Sivan, who live locally, will be arranging trips for us to an ashram, an Elephant Sanctuary, a trip to the tip of India taking in a temple on the way and a peaceful trip down the backwaters of Kerala. Sivan will be giving us a cookery class and Karen will teach us Laughter Yoga. They will also recommend local restaurants and show us to the best places to do our shopping.
You will be accommodated at The Beach and Lake Ayurvedic Resort in Pozhikkara Beach, India. You will be staying in a private or a shared double room. The resort has a beautiful beach view with en-suite rooms, a yoga shala, a swimming pool, and two restaurants.
What makes this trip special is not just the wonderful location, beautiful hotel and the yoga, meditation and mindfulness classes but the services of Sivan and Karen who live locally so have a wealth of local knowledge. From the moment they meet us at the airport in Trivandrum until our return they can answer all our questions about trips, transport, restaurants currency and shops so you can really enjoy the full Keralan experience on a trip that you will never forget.
