Join me for a retreat of a life time in India!

The year I started writing this blog I went to India for 6 months to travel, immerse myself in yoga and become a yoga teacher!

Now my intention when I left there is coming true, I am leading a retreat in Kerala 18th -28th November 2018!! I am so so excited to share yoga in wonderful India with you.


Coming Home To Yourself – Kerala Retreat

The intention for the 10 days is “Coming Home to Yourself” We are going to go on a journey through the Chakra’s which is a wonderful tool for self enquiry, healing and bringing the whole system, physically/ mentally/ energetically & emotionally, back to balance.

It will be time to reconnect with yourself, to have time away from everyday life to reflect, restore and rejuvenate.

I will be planning the schedule closer to the time but you can expect; Hatha Flow yoga in the mornings, Yin in the evenings, day trips, time off to explore on your own, plus journalling, self enquiry and short talks sharing yogic philosophy.

The Venue

Palm Tree Yoga Centre is magical with its ocean views and its roof-top yoga shala. We will have magnificent views of the Indian Ocean as we practice and during the evening practice we will see the sunset over the sea. The centre is placed just above the beach in a peaceful bay, yet is only a half hour stroll or a short rickshaw ride from the shops and restaurants of Kovalam.

Accommodation is spread over three houses arranged in a triangle.

Massages and Ayurvedic treatments can be arranged on-site. Where specific Ayurvedic equipment is required (such as for a herbal steam bath) the treatment will take place at the nearby Ayurvedic Centre.

Sumadra Village is less than ten minutes walk away and has several cafes, a beauty parlour (pedicure £4) and shops

Feedback from past retreats I have ran in Turkey:
“I’ve had a fantastic time, I loved all the readings/ meditations that you did while we were holding poses and everything was really well organised, thanks for all the effort you put into it”
“The yoga was very good, Louise really adds her heart to the classes and the different readings are very touching. I loved the yin yoga in the evenings at sunset most, the yoga nidra was powerful too”
“Excellent retreat all in all lots of things to do around the area should you wish to explore. The yoga platform was stunning, would definitely come again”
“Thank you! My first yoga retreat and I enjoyed every bit of it, an amazing week I feel nourished from the inside out”

Plus I will be on hand for 1-1 life coaching sessions (an optional paid extra) if you’d like any help getting past anything that might be preventing you from creating a life you love or simply to help get clarity in certain situations.

I am running this through Free Spirit Yoga, to find out more please see:

Free Spirit Yoga Kerala

My intention for this retreat is that you enjoy some well deserved me time, relaxation and an opportunity to have time dedicated for your yoga practice. There will be day trips to explore Kerala, Ayurvedic treatments and delicious food!

It will be suitable for beginners. I teach in a light hearted and flexible way, the most important thing is that it feels good for you.

I recommend bringing a notebook for journaling and a yoga block if you can fit it in, just for extra comfort in yin.

I really can’t wait to share this with you!
