Yoga Immersion Retreat

At AyurYoga Eco-Ashram, Mysore-Kerala, South India

This tw0 week Yoga Immersion Retreat builds the practical and theoretical foundation to master the yoga in a systematic way. Besides two daily yoga sessions with demonstrations and detailed instructions, the meditation and theory classes are incredibly valuable – for all levels of students. Without this philosophical and spiritual background to your practice, yoga can be reduced to just any other fitness exercise.

Please note this retreat will be running in parallel with ongoing teacher training retreat. You will be sharing Meditation and one theory class  (Philosophy or Ayurveda) with Teacher Training Students.  The morning Yoga class is divided for Beginners and Intermediate/Advanced students in two separate class rooms.

About Mysore

If you have never heard about Mysore, it is known as the capital of yoga in South India and a perfect gateway to explore South Indian culture steeped in thousands of years of past Hindu Heritage. It is located in the middle of all cultural and spiritual places in four South Indian states of Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh.  

What made us to change to Mysore, instead of Himalayas, is it’s good weather throughout the year and it meets a lot of our practical needs like transport, comfortable rooms and proper food etc. The cultural feasts of this place can balance the 9 hour a day intensive training you will be going through a month long very special time of your life.

For more information about Mysore please check our Orientation Guide or else:


All accommodation at AyurYoga Eco-Ashram are in eco-cottages with balcony overlook the flowing river and valley around. All rooms are attached with washrooms that contains western toilets, solar hot showers, sinks etc.. Each room of 12 x 14 feet size is very spacious for two people and a luxury for a single occupancy. Please look at the photos of the rooms on our Ashram page.  

Foods & Drinks

We provide sattvic Indian foods & drinks, which are less spicy and beneficial to the practice of yoga and meditation. Meat and fish are not allowed in our campus. Eggs can be provided on demand, if you think you need more proteins.
