Nurture your Inner Self Retreat in magical Kodaikanal, India
On our nurture you Inner Self Retreat you will experience a range of meditation and yoga classes, from Pranayama to trataka (candle meditation) and yoga nidra sessions in the mystical misty mountains of Kodaikanal. Here, amidst the awesome eucalyptus forests, pretty coffee plantations and lush meadows, a chance to bring space and reflection into your life. This is a perfect trip for the solo traveller but also a wonderful experience to share with a friend or loved one.
Drawing from both the traditions of yoga and meditation, we introduce you to techniques you can use in everyday life to overcome the obstacles and stresses we face. The yoga classes we facilitate on this retreat are gentler than the other three retreats, and taught as a guided meditation. The hikes bring refreshment and revitalisation without being strenuous.
The premises are chosen for comfort, style and peace and the food is seasonal and uplifting, carefully selected for nutritional balance and grown locally. Witness for yourself your body, mind and soul respond to a week of regeneration in nature’s paradise in the Western Ghats.
Location and how to get there.
With its mystical misty mountains and awesome eucalyptus forests, pretty coffee plantations and lush meadows Kodiakanal, known to its friends as Kodi, is an ideal site for the numerous eco- spiritual communities, eco-minded hoteliers and resorts, which have set up home here. Granite cliffs, forested valleys, lakes, waterfalls and grassy hills, border the evergreen forest beyond. Kodi can be understood as an energy centre. It is a place where magic mushrooms grow wild (the flora and fauna is generally surreal – take the Bengal Monitor as an example), the air is so pure and the waterfalls tells stories.
It is truly a magical place, an energetically charged wonder of the world. We have carefully selected the accommodation after spot checking a number of resorts over a period of months. We chose the resorts that employed the happiest staff, in the most stunning locations with the highest standards or cleanliness and maintenance. In particular we chose locations nearby the lively and bustling market town replete with chocolate, spices and pretty shops of pottery and crafts on the one hand and lush forrest and waterfalls within walking distance for the second half of the trip. We have also arranged for one night’s camping after short one-hour stroll around the farm, and ensured for the provision of good quality tents and sleeping bags on Day 4.
