Retreat location

High in the Knuckles mountains and overlooking the Victoria Dam Lake, Welikande Villas estate is set in 12 acres of cultivated with fruit, coffee, spices, and vegetables. There are three acres of landscaped gardens on its own Mountain spur. The area is a UNESCO site with very little tourism and hence a rich local community and culture.


Our food is vegetarian – vegan and gluten free options available as well. Providing a mostly plant based, sattvic menu, according to an Ayurvedic lifestyle.In itself, practicing Yoga asanas is one of the most beneficial regimes, but when complemented with the healthy food habits, it can really create wonders. In fact, eating the right food is an essential part of living a Yogic life.What we eat, not only influences our physical well being, but also our emotions and thoughts. Yoga, does not dissect food into proteins, carbohydrates or fats, instead it classifies them according to the effect they have on the body and mind, into three types – satva, rajas and tamas. Tamasic food is the kind of food which makes us lethargic or sluggish, while Rajasic food is that which brings about activity or restlessness. Whereas, Sattvic food is the kind which makes you feel light, energetic and enthusiastic.
