‘SHREYAS… MOST BEAUTIFUL’ – 10 day yoga retreat, Karnataka, India.
Shreyas: Translated from Sanskrit…..‘Most Beautiful’…’Excellence’…
Shreyas is a beautifully appointed, exclusive retreat which combines fine living with a spiritual touch, Yoga being the principal medium through which it communicates the message of “living life completely”.
Shreyas aims to demonstrate that Yoga can be learnt and practised by all, irrespective of age, health and faith. It also believes that you do not have to compromise on your creature comforts to get access to authentic teachers and teachings from this eternal, vibrant and universally applicable philosophy.
Life is a journey of self-discovery and Shreyas provides the sacred space needed to retreat, reflect and rediscover yourself to live a more fulfilling, effective and purposeful life.
I have visited Shreyas four times now and each time it has been as beautiful, gentle and restorative as it was the first time I entered its gates.
I have written three reviews on Shreyas and I feel it is now time to share Shreyas with my students and friends and have decided to run a retreat in 2019. An exclusive retreat with only 7 participants.
I have also included a visit to a local school and/or orphanage so one may observe and understand a little about the life in the local area and a full day tour outside of Shreyas.
WHEN: 27 February, 2019
(10 nights, 9½ days)
These days will include:
- Classical Hatha Yoga Sessions
- Restorative Yoga Sessions

…and much more!
The retreats are themed and are based on ‘The Qualities of Humanity’.
Shreyas is set in 25 acres of pristine countryside and offers a luxurious home away from home. So soothing. So peaceful. It houses a maximum of 25 guests who are cared for by Shreyas carefully trained staff in a secluded, private and serene environment. Belying the idea that a retreat means roughing it out, cottages at Shreyas Retreat are built for absolute comfort.
The accommodation varies but consists of elegant garden cottages with tented canopies, poolside cottages and one 3-bedroom cottage. From its calming façade to the cuisine, yoga classes, spa menus and no-alcohol/no-meat policy, every detail is carefully considered so that guests are provided with optimal opportunities to realise material and mental harmony.
1 hour drive from Bangalore (Bengalaru) Airport.
The Hatha yoga classes, deep relaxation sessions and meditation instruction are experiential and uncomplicated.
These methods are ideal for those who love yoga and practise it regularly to ‘deepen’ their already established yoga practice.
Shreyas is also ideal for beginners and people of all ages, body types, walks of life, professions and dispositions.
If you seek to maintain good health; incorporate relaxation for wellbeing; or restore equilibrium, then this retreat is perfect for you!
Shreyas does not serve alcohol and is a meat-free venue. The cuisine is nourishing, nutritious and delicious.
