Yoga Retreat at Neeleshwar Hermitage, Kerala!!


Yoga is an indispensable aid to good health, a natural and enjoyable way to bring your mind, body and spirit back into balance. Increasing numbers of people are finding that a simple yoga routine can add hugely to your enjoyment of life.

Here at The Hermitage we are fortunate to have the opportunity to practice yoga in the most beautiful and tranquil natural surroundings: surrounded by graceful coconut palms and cooled by balmy breezes from the Arabian Sea.

Our retreat takes advantage of this delightful setting by including a ‘Tuning into Nature’ session, that includes a guided meditation built into a walk along our beach.

Our teacher is Shri Anil Kumar , who has been teaching classical Hatha Yoga (Ashtanga Yoga School) for eleven years.

Anil has a postgraduate diploma in Yoga Therapy (PGDYT) from SVYASA Yoga University Bangalore; a diploma in Yogic Science & Indigenous Health Care (DYS) from Kannur University and a diploma in Yogic Science & Naturopathy (DNYS) from New Delhi. He has also taken a Yoga Vedanta course from the Yoga Vedanta Forest Academy in Rishikesh.

His emphasis is always on ease and naturalness, so that the body is cultured and the nervous system refined of its impurities in a gradual and systematic way.

Our yoga classes will take place either in the covered Patanjali Yoga Hall overlooking the beach or open air Yoga Pavillion which is again overlooking the beach.

Both the places are based on the concept of light, space and air, offering fine views of the ocean while providing a calm and tranquil atmosphere lulled by the sound of the waves.
