Palm Tree Yoga Centre India Yoga retreat
March 22nd-April 4th
Palm Tree Yoga Centre is magical with its ocean views and its roof-top yoga shala.
It 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. For large groups we also use a fourth house closer to the beach.
Massages can be arranged on-site for £12, or you can wander to Sumadra Beach which is less than ten minutes walk away and has several cafes, a beauty parlour (pedicure £4) and an Ayurvedic Centre where you can have massages and Ayurvedic treatments.
Food: There is an on-site restaurant. Each day after your morning yoga class a delicious breakfast will be served.
On four evenings each week dinner will be provided. Kerala has great vegetarian cuisine so on other evenings we will explore the many local restaurants
Kovalam Village: Kovalam Village is two bays away and you can either stroll in along the road or take a tuk tuk. This is a great place to shop, visit restaurants, treatment centres and places to change money.
Massages: Palm Tree has an on-site massage centre. There are also many massage and beauty parlours in the nearby village providing massages at extremely reasonable rates.
Swimming: The beach is directly in front of the venue, sunbeds and umbrellas can be hired at a discount.
The Indian Ocean can be quite vigorous and have a strong under-tow so there are well trained life guards on all beaches. The Leela beach is 5 minutes walk to the left of the venue and is protected by a reef so there the sea is normally calm and very suitable for swimming (you can also swim in hotel swimming pool at Sumadra Beach for a small daily fee - usually £2 to £3).
Excursions can be arranged for you: just ask Halin our manager and he will arange transport and the excursions for you.
