What we love

• SwaSwara tries to introduce local elements into your stay to remind you of the local customs

• Laughter yoga: You may be skeptical at the start of this class with forced false laughter, but you will quickly find this turns to real giggles and is quite infectious 

• SwaSwara has a great profusion of healing plants and medicinal herbs that grow everywhere on the property - they believe that their presence creates an aura of healing for all who enter here. 


Who should go

  • Yogis who are serious about this ancient practice and wish to dive into it much deeper 
  • Solo travellers who wish to spend some time in a quiet environment but with the opportunity to meet others
  • People who want to get a taste of Ayurveda for the first time but also those who wish to do a proper detox or Panchakarma.
