A mere hour’s drive – but seemingly million miles away – from tech-centric Bangalore’s urban sprawl, lies the 25-acre Shreyas estate. Comprising extensive landscaped gardens, organic vegetable and herb plantations and tranquil water features, this self-contained oasis is the ideal backdrop to some contemplative reflection and self-focus.
Sheryas’ approach is totally unique; guests come to master yoga taught in the authentic ashram style, committing to daily yoga, meditation, chanting and alcohol-free, vegetarian cuisine for the duration of their stay. You are also invited to perform community service, in the form of serving a meal to children living in the local orphanage. However, deprivation is most definitely not part of the package; Shreyas’ plush cottages, Ayurvedic spa and stunning leisure facilities (including an infinity pool, sauna and even cricket nets) all add up to a rejuvenating and pampering stay, with the focus firmly on wellness.
