about us

Anahata Retreats, founded by Bijay J. Anand, is an organisation that brings together revered, respected and acclaimed teachers of yoga, ayurveda, wellness and spirituality from around the world, with eager to learn students and seekers of knowledge. These meetings are organised in the form of retreats or workshops that are designed with a specific target audience in mind and focus on specific areas of interest.

The venues are carefully chosen as per the nature and structure of individual retreats. A retreat with an internationally acclaimed Kundalini Yoga teacher like Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa is hosted on a small island off Goa, which is an oasis of beauty, peace and serenity, whereas a Kundalini Yoga + adventure retreat takes us to the scenic mountains of Ladakh, where we can combine the peace and quiet of nature with the myriad of adventure activities that Ladakh is renowned for.

However an Anahata Retreat may be designed, its purpose remains the same, which is:

  • To enrich the lives of its participants with spiritual, health and wellness-based activities, yoga and meditation
  • To build a community of like-minded individuals who dream of living a spiritual, joyous and blissful life, and would like to make this world a better place to live in
  • To ensure the comfort, safety and well-being of all participants, ensuring that their every need and desire is anticipated and catered to
  • Providing a soothing, serene and rich ambience during the retreat that is conducive for detoxification of mind and body


Anahata offers three types of retreats:

The first one has our founder Bijay J. Anand conduct the wellness retreat based on his book ‘Mindlessness to Mindfulness’. The structure of the same is an amalgamation of yoga, meditation and lectures on various aspects of wellness, diet, ayurveda and lifestyle.

The second kind has respected teachers from around the world, each one a master in his or her chosen path, who are invited by Anahata Retreats, guiding our participants on the path of growth and wisdom.

And lastly, teachers and organisations that wish to use the considerable resources and experience of Anahata to organise their own retreats can use our services and design tailor-made retreats for their students, friends or followers.
