Venue & Accomodation

Back of Beyond Kahandamodara is a beautiful eco and ayurveda retreat center set in 14 acres of land. Aiming to be self sufficient, they grow their own produce and cook the most delicious vegetarian meals. Close to an estuary and beach where fresh water meets the sea, there is plenty of opportunity for walking, cycling and exploring, but also has the added benefit of being tucked away so that there are no distractions from the immersive work you will be doing.


Breakfast smoothie and 2 delicious vegetarian meals a day are included in the package. Most of the vegetables are organically grown at the venue. On level 1 trainings we introduce fasting and detox practices. Though greatly beneficial fasting is not compulsory. Students are encouraged to listen to conscious eating lectures and decide for themselves if they wish to participate
