Ayurveda Yoga Teacher Training in Kerala

  • Yoga & Ayurveda Reisen
  • Ayurveda Retreats


Ayurveda and Yoga are two interconnected traditional Indian health systems for body, mind and soul. These two sister sciences support each other to provide a healing health system to the yoga practitioner or Ayurveda patient.

Both Yoga and Ayurveda have their origins in the Sat Dharmas, the six Orthodox philosophies in India, are more than 5000 years old systems and are based on the Samkhya philosophy. Both focus on your holistic health, called Swastha, including your physical, mental and spiritual health, with yoga focusing more on the well-being of the mind and Ayurveda on your physical body.

Together, they create the perfect mix of practices and treatments to bring more value to your life.

About the region

Kerala is home to many Christians, so you can visit not only Hindu temples and mosques, but also many churches. In many places you almost feel like in southern Europe, because many Portuguese settled here during the colonial period and traded.


From November to March it is pleasantly warm and you only need light clothing. On most beaches of Kerala you can bathe in normal swimwear. On the beaches just off the coast, it is advisable to put on a T-shirt. Women in particular often attract unwelcome glances from local and Indian tourists, as it is not common in India for women to show too much skin. From March the temperatures will rise and it will be humid, so you will sweat a lot and have to pay attention to your circulation. From June to the end of September is rainy season, and many seasonal accommodations and restaurants have closed. During this time it rains quite heavily, but is an ideal time for an Ayurveda retreat.

What you should bring:

  • light knee- and shoulder-covering clothing (thighs and tunic, shirt and wide trousers, knee-covering dresses (also shorts and tops possible)
  • Clothing for Yoga
  • old clothes (under clothes, shirts, trousers) for treatments with oil and pastes
  • Scarf or scarf
  • Sandals or flip-flops
  • Sunglasses, Sunscreen, Head
  • own toiletries, but not too much, as many Ayurvedic products are available here
  • small bag / backpack for excursions
  • Passport (copy), credit or bank card, cash in your currency (approx. €50)
  • Camera, phone, charger (no adapter required)
  • Notebook and writing material
  • Swimwear, towel
