Dhyaana Farmstay

Dhyaana Farmstay and Mindfulness Retreat is the perfect getaway to de-stress, be close to nature, experience rural life and teach rural kids through our Mindfulness Outreach Centre. A short drive from Bangalore, the retreat is situated in a small village in the beautiful Thally area, also known as Little England for its pleasant climate and scenic views.

Tapping into locally available materials, the retreat is built on the foundation of sustainability. It offers a rustic experience with its mud huts made from earth and dried plant fibre sourced from the land. Little dams lined with granite stones from the area for rainwater storage and solar panels powering the place. We're also exploring putting up a windmill to tap into the year-round breeze that this region is blessed with.

Dhyaana Farmstay and Mindfulness Retreat is available for corporate training needs with and without our trainers.

Opening Soon

For the more adventurous, we also have

Of course, all these activities are optional and interspersed with plenty of time to do nothing.

All meals are natural vegetarian, made with local produce. Evenings are meant for a little more yoga and deep relaxation. At the end of the day, we have bonfire gatherings where you can share stories and connect with like-minded people.

Accommodation is in tents and mud huts and you get to have the wonderful experience of sleeping in the lap of nature, under the stars!

You get to go back invigorated and with greater self-awareness and emotional intelligence!

What's more, you are now armed with a number of practices that you can continue to use in your daily life!

A social
agri-tourism initiative

The farmstay is also an agri-tourism initiative that aims to improve the lives of the rural folk in the region. We source all produce locally, employ local people and give our guests the opportunity to be a part of local lives! We are also working towards establishing a model of teaching yoga and mindfulness free of cost to underprivileged children at a number of schools in the region. We urge you to join us and experience the energy that comes from making a difference to these lovely rural kids. So whether you teach them rocket science or about the birds and the bees, you'll find there is no greater learning than teaching!

Stay tuned for updates on our launch!
