I arrived at SWAN thinking I knew a lot about yoga, but turns out I knew very little. After practicing yoga for 2 years, for the first time, I actually started to understand the philosophy and principles which underlie yoga and meditation. This was thanks to SWAN. I cannot sum up the experience I had a SWAN in just a few words. What I can say though, is that it exceeded all my expectations. My spiritual journey started at SWAN and I will continue to be on it for the rest of my life. The lessons I learnt from Om, Gyanmitra and Shivendra were invaluable. All three of them had so much time to give, so much love and so much wisdom. It was one of the most profound experiences of my life and I will always be grateful for what I learnt at SWAN. It is a place where you learn to just 'be' and where you get to feed your mind, body and soul.
Everything from the yoga, mediation, philosophical talks to the food and accommodation was amazing. The food was outstanding. The best vegetarian meals I have had. The rooms are also extremely comfortable.
SWAN is a tranquil, beautiful place and you can feel the powerful energies from the moment you step inside. It was a fantastic, holistic and life changing experience for me and I will definitely be back soon :) Thank you SWAN! Hare Om!
