There are yoga retreats and yoga retreats... This one sits at the top of the list for peace, serenity, support, friendly service, yoga teaching, meditation practice and teaching, treatments, yoga and an all encompassing yoga experience. The attention to detail is second to none and the service comes with love, kindness and a pride to serve. I spent 9 days there in June - the weather was around 24 degrees C, a light wind, a light smattering of rain for about 5 mins every afternoon. I didn't find the need to want to watch movies, listen to the radio, read the news and although I did take my laptop to keep in touch with home the desire to turn it on was rare. The gardens are spectacular and tended with such love and care. I felt quite honoured to be aloud to join the community picking vegetables, okra, chillies, herbs and spices. The visit to a local orphanage was humbling. The chanting meditation was a joy and something that I've taken home with me to practice on a daily basis. I spent 3 days as the only guest and the staff were amazing at looking out for me and making sure that I had everything that I needed. I can't recommend this place highly enough. There are trains that rattles along the track, just on the boundary of the grounds, with the driver sitting on his horn day and night to let those walking along the track know that he is approaching fast - After 24 hours it was just a background noise that didn't even effect meditation or my sleep - it became part of the peace. Book it and try it out for yourself...... you'll love it.
