Join Swaswara for a short yoga holiday in Gokarna, India. Tailored specifically for those who want to de-stress in a beautiful natural surroundings, this program includes everything related to well-being. Integrating the essential elements of Ayurveda, yogic Kriyas, asanas, and meditation with a healthy and organic gourmet diet, this program will leave you refreshed with increased energy levels.
Swaswara silently salutes the terrain, climate, and natural offerings of the land, the architecture respecting the topography and undulations. Crafted in colors of the earth, using local materials like laterite and coconut thatch Swaswara’s 24 Konkan villas are in harmony with the land that nurtures her.
The dwelling unit at Swaswara is a villa that invites you to revel in the open and green spaces created within the confines of walls. It affords all modern amenities, comforts and privacy, yet opens the skies and nature’s bounty to the senses. Each villa boasts a central open courtyard garden planted with herbs.
You will have guided nature walks daily in the morning at 6:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. in the afternoon, but prior booking is required.
There is also guided bird watching once per week on Wednesdays. Prior booking is required for participation. Guided sessions for art and pottery are also available with the resident artist. This activity is available everyday excluding Sundays. Meditative art with the resident artist is at 12:00 p.m. everyday excluding Sunday.
Once you’re at SwaSwara, there are many ways to find your nirvana such as art therapy. SwaSwara believes that art urges voyages, enabling you to find and lose yourselves at the same time. You are invited to the art studio to experiment with just about anything.
From tribal Warli painting to watercolor on handmade paper, from origami to clay on a potter’s wheel, there’s something here to awaken the inner artist in you and open paths to self-discovery. So roll up your sleeves, get your hands dirty, and let your right brain take over.
Hatha yoga focuses on improving one’s physical health. Strengthening the body has a powerful effect. It in turn benefits mental health, spiritual well-being, and increases longevity. From the cuisine to the activities on offer, every experience at SwaSwara follows Hatha yoga principles. Authentic Hatha yoga sessions are conducted by highly-qualified practitioners.
Propagated by Sadhguru, Isha Hatha yoga adapts classical Hatha yoga principles to fit the lifestyle of the modern individual.
