Join us for 3 days in Mumbai followed by a 10-day yoga retreat at Govardhan Ecovillage - one of the best wellness ashrams in India - located at the foothills of the Sahyadri mountain ranges.


 A place of natural harmony to release, refocus and recalibrate the self, Govardhan Ecovillage is crafted in colours of the Earth and in harmony with the land that nurtures her. It is an ideal environment for the Yoga Retreat that will nourish the body, mind and soul. 

Our retreat is designed for holistic and transformational experiences in a space where the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda and Yoga embrace you to rejuvenate body and spirit.

The retreat comprises meditation, asanas (postures), pranayama (breathing exercises), ayurveda (wellness treatments), spirituality, healthy vegetarian yogic diet, vedanta talks, sattvic cooking workshops, and sustainable exploration of local villages, ancient temples, valleys and mountains.

Mumbai Tour

We arrive in India to acclimatise to what is described by many as a 'feast for the senses' and get down to explore Mumbai - the Indian city of dreams, and also Bollywood, over 3 days / 4 nights.

Our stay in Mumbai will be in a safe and secure 5-star rated hotel (breakfast included) and we will explore various parts of this megacity, its rich history, diverse cuisine, industry, community and so much more over three action-packed days. 

Expect to come on plenty of walks, tours (such as Mumbai by Dawn, Colonial Walk, and more), eat finger-licking delicious food, mingle with and live life just like the 24 million+ 'Mumbaikars' that call this city home! 



From Mumbai, we then embark on our yoga retreat which will take place at Govardhan Ecovillage - a lush green, quiet abode of natural beauty, situated 1.5 hours from Mumbai. It is a place that houses several eco-friendly initiatives spread over 100 acres and has been awarded by United Nations for its various sustainable development initiatives. International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISCKON) have built the Ecovillage and are led by the principles of humility and sustainability - their mission being to serve and propagate the benefits of India’s age old traditions of Yoga, Meditation and Ayurveda to the whole world.



Kriyas are a way to cleanse the physical body. These processes cleanse and activate the vital organs of the body, especially the digestive, respiratory, circulatory and the nervous systems. We will help you to learn and master few of these techniques that you can bring back home to practice on your own, for a healthier you.

Food includes simple, locally grown, nutritious and delicious, freshly-prepared meals straight from farm to table.
