Top-10 Life Changing Yoga Vacations

The Shreyas resort has been highly recommended.
Definitely worth a visit and a relaxing time

If the idea of an ashram is both appealing and scary then Shreyas may be the best way to combine the lifestyle elements of an ashram without the austerity. Daily Hatha and Ashtanga yoga sessions are paired with opportunities to volunteer in the community, work on the organic farm, meditate and participate in sacred chanting—all traditional experiences of ashram life. However, the four-year-old resort's cottage and chalet accomodations, spa facilities, pool and landscaped gardens are pure luxury.

High up in the Himalyas, this Oberoi Hotels resort might be just the place for your yoga practice to soar. The hotel's special yoga program includes a seven-night stay with private yoga, fitness and lifestyle consultations and then six one-on-one yoga sessions and five meditation sessions as well as booked time at the Banyan Tree Spa for massages and Ayurvedic treatments. It's a great choice for someone who wants serious daily yoga to complement a unique vacation in a peerless resort.

In a happy coincidence, the yoga resort is located on Om Beach in the southern state of Kerala, the "land of coconuts." The relaxed beach vibe provides a counterpoint to the sleek villas built in local architectural styles and with local materials but fitted with air conditioning in the bedroom. Each villa has an upstairs deck for private yoga practice, and in keeping with this focus on a personal journey, each guest meets with Ayurveda doctors and therapists. There are various types of yoga and meditation classes as well as activities like interactive cooking and pottery that guests can choose from to tailor their own experience to find their "swasara," or personal rhythm.

Welcome to the spirituality blog

This blog is an offshoot of a website that I had conceived as a result of the spiritual grace and resultant inspiration during Shivaratri Y2K (http://www.jyotirlinga.com) on the joy of Shiva Bhakti and my quest for spiritual progress. Not finding the time (yep, bad excuse!), this blog suits me fine in quickly adding content... my spiritual forays and thoughts - helps log them too. My spiritual journey started with Hinduism and it's simple stories/ teachings as far back as when I was a 2nd grader, with Lord Shiva and has now found convergence with Advaitism / Duality. The Advaitism gurus like Bhagwan Ramana Maharishi, Nisargadatta Maharaj; they have provided that spiritual boost of energy in many lagging moments and have tremendously influenced me ... little baby steps at a time... that will hopefully all lead upto a final crescendo. The merits of satsangh are many!
