About the property:

Shreyas, a sprawling 25-acre retreat on the outskirts of Bangalore offers guests a private and tranquil haven to pamper, nourish and recharge themselves. Shreyas looks to combine fine living with a spiritual touch, where guests can immerse themselves into the wisdom of the timeless spiritual traditions of Yoga and Vedanta. The property boasts of stunning gardens along with an organic herb and vegetable garden where everyone is welcome to come and help out. Recognised as one of the finest yoga retreats in the World, Shreyas is elegantly designed luxurious retreat at par with some of the more exclusive small retreats in the world. Shreyas prides itself on its service, which is an attempt to apply the eternal Vedic instruction – Athiti Devo Bhava – or ‘treat thy guest as an embodiment of the Divine’. Shreyas is a member of Relais & Chateaux, a collection of the finest hotels worldwide.

The essence of Shreyas is the concept of wellness of body, mind and soul, for the purpose of self-mastery that manifests as excellence in all that we do.  The principal medium through which guests are exposed to this is Yoga - which is non-denominational and open to people of all faiths.  They demonstrate through various customised programs that, contrary to popular belief, Yoga can be practiced by everyone – fit or unfit, old or young, supple or brittle.  Yoga has an amazing effect on the body and mind energies allowing one to deal with life's ups and downs with sense of equanimity.  Shreyas will appeal to those who wish to understand/familiarise themselves with the philosophical tradition of India, without necessarily delving into its organised religious aspects.Traditional Hatha and Ashtanga Yoga are practised – this includes simple posture classes for stress management and moves on to more advanced modules. Besides the physical postures, Shreyas also offers breathing exercises (Pranayama), visualization techniques (sakshi bhava), deep relaxation classes (Yoga Nidra), Yogic kriyas (jala neti, Vaman dhouti) and candle meditation (Trataka), etc. People are also encouraged to get away from an over-worked and hectic lifestyle or the rigours of the office; to come and de-stress by working in the organically grown vegetable and herb gardens, planting paddy and getting their feet dirty!  A true retreat geared towards self -discovery, where the intention is to bring a little of the best of Indian spiritual wisdom (namely, Yoga) into the lives of its guests.
