About this trip

Reconnect to the essence of your Divine Feminine nature during a 6 day, 5 night wellness retreat in Kerala, India! During this all-women's event, we'll journey deeper into the physical, mental, and spiritual practices of yoga, meditation, and personal development.
Over the week, we'll disconnect to reconnect- immersing ourselves completely into authentic Indian culture and breathtaking landscapes within this tiny forest village. 

100% of the proceeds from this retreat will be donated to Go Light Our World (GLOW)’s solar projects across in India. These projects are designed to exclusively empower women within the country. Not only will you be investing in a life-changing experience for yourself in a beautiful location; but you will also be giving back to impoverished communities around the world, as well.

River House & Rooms

River House:
-River House is a luxury style villa accommodation for guests who are seeking a sanctuary type stay in an authentic Indian forest village. 
-The area is surrounded by a protected forested area where wildlife can easily be spotted. 
-The grounds include: 5 bedroom luxury villa, private pool, separate dining area overlooking the river, dedicated yoga space, an organic garden from which most of the food is supplied. 

Room Info:
-All rooms are luxury style accommodation. 
-All rooms are shared.
-All rooms offer either ONE KING bed, or be split apart to make TWO TWIN beds (please note which you prefer upon booking).
-All rooms come equipped with AC, hot water shower, kettle, patio, and changing area.


Neriamangalam: -A small village about halfway from Cochin to Munnar in the forested mountain region of Kerala, India. -Neriamangalam is surrounded by hundreds of kilometers of protected forest, so wildlife is plentiful in the region and easily spotted. -The area has NOT been developed for tourism yet, so there are no large hotels, shops, malls, etc.  -Because tourism has yet to hit Neriamangalam, guests have a chance to experience AUTHENTIC Indian life and culture during their stay at River House.  -This region also includes: jungle treks, forest temples, and mountain hiking. -Expect to be inspired by nature during an incredible tranquil stay in the sanctuary that is River House. 


SURROUNDINGS: -To access Neriamangalam, you will fly in and out of Cochin International Airport. Transportation from the airport to River House is available by direct bus or by private care/taxi. This is a 1.5 - 2 hour drive. -Cochin (Kochi) is also the nearest coastal region. You will likely stay one night prior to the retreat, or one night after in order to make your flight.  -We recommend staying in Kochi Fort, as this area is on the beach (please note this is a port town/fishing village area), and there are plenty of hotel options for every budget available here.   -Munnar is a tourist hotspot in Kerala due to its stunning tea plantations and endless hikes.  -Munnar is 2-2.5 hours by direct bus or private car/taxi from Neriamangalam. This region is nice for those looking for an adventurous day trip to another beautiful (but much more touristy) area.

I just had probably the best week of my life, having fun and sharing with the most amazing people, learning about ourself and other, growing together around yoga and puppies. Kayla and Rivka did their best to make this week perfect and simple, and I am so thankful for their work and wha they taught us To the next glow retreat, cheers !
Such an amazing experience. This trip was so transformative and rewarding and just so much fun. Kayla and Shan are wonderful teachers that care and connect with you, and are genuine in providing support whenever you are in your journey. The Cove is a magical place to visit and it felt so good to get to eat delicious vegan food everyday. I will definately be back on more trips as soon as possible!

Trip of a lifetime and life changing in so many positive ways. The yoga, the people, the food and the accommodations were 5 star!

I initially chose this retreat because I loved how everything was included in the price. Hotel, breakfast, dinner, yoga and excursions were all coordinated so I didn’t have to really think once I got there. The retreat itself was beyond my expectations. The teachers Kayla, Cait, and Karina were such beautiful, inspiring, warm people and incredible teachers. I felt blessed to be their student. I learned so much from them and the other students on the retreat. I feel like I came away with the serenity and tools I was looking for and gained many friends in the process. Kayla is GOALS on many levels and I must admit I felt a little star struck witnessing her beautiful practice. I will surely be attending another of her retreats. She is truly a light in this world!
