Kerala, India

  • 7 - 15 January 2019


Luxury Yoga in Kerala.  Join Michele Pernetta founder of Fierce Grace at this stunning 5-star hotel.

Sumptuous food and vibrant sights. A variety of classes for all levels. Ayurvedic massage, detox or a clifftop cocktail on this no-judgement retreat.

Fierce Grace Founder Michele has carefully handpicked one of Kerala’s most luxurious hotels for your stay. Experience gorgeous rooms, idyllic infinity pools, panoramic views, sumptuous food, an unsurpassed yoga experience and more.

When you’re not unwinding in the 5-star comfort of this beautiful cliff-top oasis, you can spend your time strolling along a white sand beach to the nearby quaint shops and crafts of Kovalam beach. Brush off the pressures of home, soak up the sun and kickstart your own health and wellbeing for 2019 with an Ayurvedic treatment or detox.

Kerala is the home of Ayurvedic medicine. Have a few sessions with one of the knowledgeable doctors and discover your constitutional type and the diet and herbs to improve your health.

This is our fourth Kerala retreat and we wanted to offer a taste of the real India, with authentic Ayurveda treatments and deep Yoga, in a paradise setting. If you are new to India, this is the best introduction you could imagine.


We have been running yoga retreats for 17 years. This retreat is a relaxed look at South India. This is our fourth Kerala retreat so there’s no one better placed to unveil the beauty of this magical country while helping you to improve or begin your yoga practice and detox or indulge (this is a no-judgement retreat) in uncompromising style. Begin 2019 the way you mean to carry on, happy, inspired, healthy and fit.


Experience the reknowned Fierce Grace method; the signature flowing Fierce Grace class, the deep slow stretching of Deep Core, the power and stamina of Wild, and the meditational rehabilitation of In, the motivating Fix and  to name a few. Michele will lead some meditation sessions, while the breeze floats through the palm trees.

You will enjoy expert-led yoga classes every morning in the gorgeous ocean view yoga shala from Michele and her expert assistant. The classes build from day 1 to day 8, each day bringing a progression from the last, gradually removing toxins, deepening flexibility, strength and connection. After lunch we are free to lounge by the pool, having treatments, or a walk to the beach front to visit the shops, cafes and restaurants. Most late afternoons we will have a second yoga or meditation session. 11-12 classes in 8 days will see you reenergised, revitalised and renewed.  

We will also arrange optional excursions to nearby attractions, which include:

  • The tip of India to see Vivekananda’s rock shrine
  • Suchindram the famous hand carved temple with the singing columns and live spiritual rituals

 “Combining Fierce Grace yoga with a glimpse of India, a truly authentic Ayurveda experience, the luxury of a 5-star hotel and an atmosphere of being on holiday with good friends; this is pretty much as good as it gets.”
