ASHTANGA YOGA SANCTUARY RETREAT – ANDAMAN ISLANDS
5 – 11 NOVEMBER 2023
We’re thrilled to host this very special yoga retreat in India’s Andaman Islands with Certified Ashtanga Teacher, Laruga Glaser. The Andamans are known for pristine beaches, abundant marine life and gorgeous tropical flora. Just a 2.5 hour flight from Bangalore, these islands are a hidden gem that we’re excited to share and discover with you. From waking up to bird songs and falling asleep to the soft murmur of the sea, every moment spent here will relax and rejuvenate you. We can’t think of a better place to practise yoga and move our minds profoundly towards silence.
The retreat will be held at Sanctuary on Wandoor beach — the property was designed for natural luxury. Each cottage has a distinct look, style and vibe. Spread across a two-acre hill, Sanctuary is surrounded by lush tropical greenery and is a minute away from Wandoor beach.

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE RETREAT

Luxurious turquoise outlined with emerald and indigo — Radhanagar beach on Havelock is among the most beautiful on the islands. We planned a day trip to these scenic shores but the Andamans aren’t just about beaches. We will also take you on a trek to Munda Pahad, it’s an enchanting trail covered with kisses from fallen leaves and dense, forested walkways that promise sunshine and panoramic sea views at the summit.
