This was my first experience of a yoga retreat and am really happy that it was with Swan.After a few days there I felt like part of a family as did the other guests.As night turned into day we made our way up the path to the main yoga shala, nestled among the trees, for early meditation. Delicious fruit was served later in the dinning area. An asana and prana yama class then brunch. Later in the afternoon an optional masterclass was available.
Highlights were complete internal cleansing,fire ceremonies with chanting on Friday and Saturday evenings,walking meditation in the forest and the informal chats with Um, Shivendra and Gyan Midra. Highly recommend Swan to anyone who loves yoga at any level,would definitely go again.Excellent cooking.
