With festivities out of the way, there’s no better way to kick off the New Year than with a mind and body sojourn. We’re giving you the chance to win a three-night stay for two at the incredible Shreyas Yoga Retreat in south India, for a complete reboot.

Set in 25 acres of greenery and open to only a handful of guests, this is the perfect place to loose yourself in, or, if you’re after something more spiritual, in which to find yourself. A wide range of structured programmes will give you the chance to do exactly what you wish and relax at the same time. A traditional aarti (lamp) and a marigold garland welcome set the tone for your stay. You will instantly find yourself embracing the positivity and restfulness in the air.

Once you’ve made yourself comfortable in the elegant onsite cottage, you will receive a wellness consultation in order to work out the right relaxation package for you.


Rise early to the sounds of singing birds and waken your mind and body with sunrise yoga guided with experienced instructors. A class later on in the day will ensure you learn the art of breathing, while additional classes will help you to delve deeper into the ancient teachings of yoga. Your relaxation experience will be enhanced by a rejuvenating massage, as well as a meditation session.

If lounging by the pool in between classes sounds too sedate for you, then why not go trekking in the nearby hills or soak up the local culture by visiting the surrounding villages? You’ll certainly need to work up an appetite – a healthy – and delicious – vegetarian menu will be tailor-made especially for you for the duration of your stay.

‘Athiti Devo Bhava’, meaning ‘serve the guest as the Divine’, is a philosophy followed at Shreyas Yoga Retreat. You’re guaranteed a divine experience that will afford you a whole new outlook on life when you return home.
