Shreyas Yoga Retreat - a journey of self discovery…
Step into the unusual serenity of nature, so tranquil and calming. A finely balanced infusion of professional yoga, lush gardens, meditation bales’ and discreet service greets guests and continues throughout their stay. Shreyas is a superbly comfortable and stylish yoga retreat at par with some of the more exclusive small retreats in the world. Shreyas prides itself on its service, which is an attempt to apply the eternal Vedic instruction – Athiti Devo Bhava – or ‘treat thy guest as an embodiment of the Divine’.
Background - The essence of Shreyas is the concept of wellness of body, mind and soul, for the purpose of self-mastery that manifests as excellence in all that we do. The principal medium through which guests are exposed to this is Yoga - which is non-denominational and open to people of all faiths. Through various customised programs Shreyas believes that Yoga can be practiced by everyone – fit or unfit, old or young, supple or brittle. Yoga and meditation has an amazing effect on the body and mind energies allowing one to deal with life's ups and downs with sense of equanimity. Shreyas will appeal to those who wish to understand or familiarise themselves with the philosophical tradition of India, without necessarily delving into its organised religious aspects. Traditional Hatha and Ashtanga Yoga are practised – this includes simple posture classes for stress management and moves on to more advanced modules.
The centre focuses on self-development workshops in a safe and comfortable environment. Classes are suitable for both male and females. People are also encouraged to get away from an over-worked and hectic lifestyle or the rigours of the office; to come and de-stress by working in the vegetable and herb garden, planting paddy and getting their feet dirty! A true retreat geared to self -discovery, where the intention is to bring a little of the best of Indian spiritual wisdom (namely, Yoga) into the lives of its guests.
