For years, travelers seeking serenity and spiritual renewal have made their way to India's ashrams and retreat centers to learn the wisdom of ancient practices like yoga, meditation and Ayurveda healing.
From by-donation yoga programs at a southern India center to luxury wellness retreats at an upscale Himalayas destination spa, these 10 retreat centers accommodate every budget and level of interest, from the yoga-curious to experienced meditation practitioners. The Art of Living International Center, a 65-acre campus located on top of the Panchagiri Hills outside Bangalore, is a popular destination for peace-seekers from abroad heading to India for the ashram experience.
We run accessible, nurturing yoga mindfulness meditation retreats for everyone, from complete beginners, to  those who may be a little more advanced. Mindfulness is a about focusing on the present moment, using techniques such as yoga, breathing and meditation. Find a relaxing position, a place of comfort, on cushions or a chair, with a comfortable but erect posture and close your eyes. The first minute is spent focusing on where you are now, the contact between your body and the seat and the sensations around your body. Inevitably, your mind may wander, you simply acknowledge where it went and gently bring your focus back to the breath without being critical about yourself.
The third minute involves a deeper awareness from the breath and across the rest of your body, observing how it feels, but breathing, moment to moment. Our retreat includes small groups, allowing guests to make lasting frienships, many of which return year after year. Are you seeing things in yourself that you you are missing and would like to bring out into your life again? With yoga postures, breathing exercises, meditative walks and seated meditation you will reconnect to yourself.

This year we offer a five day meditation retreat in the beautiful area of Peniche, Portugal.
The five day retreat will rejuvenate and refresh you in a short time with instructions in yoga postures, breathing exercises and meditation.
In addition to the retreat program that includes yoga, meditation and mindfulness exercises, you will still have time in your yoga holiday to enjoy the beaches and attractions.
