Valerie Moselle – Santa Cruz ” USA

“I had the great honor of studying with Shukl’acharya and his wife Samrita at the Satvik Mode in Gurgaon, Haryana in 2006.  My family spent just under 6 months outside Delhi in Gurgaon where my husband was working.  I had been teaching yoga in the States for upwards of 5 years, and had always wanted to come to India practice and study.  Despite my exposure in the States, I had never felt drawn to the teachers with whom most Americans travel to India to study.  Also, because we were living in India for work rather than on a pilgrimage, I was limited to yoga teachers I could find in the developing and changing area outside of Delhi where we lived.  Little did I know I would be so fortunate. In Shukl’acharya and Samrita I was blessed to have found wonderful, sincere, and knowledgeable teachers.  I would not hesitate to recommend them to any student of yoga, experienced or novice.

 

As Shukl’acharya’s student I spent a little over three months in daily dialog and practice, and developed what I hope will be a continuing mentor-ship for years to come.  I was taken on as a student after a careful interview process during which I had to demonstrate my openness to the teachings and the changes the Shuklas might recommend to my lifestyle including diet as well as practice —for true yoga involves every aspect of living.  The majority of my training took place during the first month, when I spent often around 3 hours a day at the Satvik Mode practicing asana, pranayama and chanting, as well as discussing the philosophy of yoga.  The remainder of our time together was less formal, and flowed as a continued overseeing of my practice over the following months, and an ongoing discussion about the application of yogic techniques to my particular life circumstances as a mother, woman and teacher in the West. Shukl’acharya was careful to incorporate my  entire family into my practice and to keep their needs as well as my own in mind in his recommendations.  In my 15 years of experience with yoga I have found this a rare quality.  In the West we often teach what works for us, rather than what might work for the individual before us.

 

Shukl’acharya and Samita shared several meals with my family.  From them I learned much about caring for the body through food, and preparing the body for higher consciousness with diet.  I have never felt so physically balanced as when I have been able to observe these teachings carefully and thoroughly.

As time passes I continue to refer both to my notes and to my memory of my time as a student of Shukl’acharya.  I remember my lessons as flowing, rather than structured.  We had many conversations, and shared practice together as well.  At the time, though I was absorbing a tremendous amount of concentrated information, I wasn’t able to see clearly exactly how it was shaping my understanding of yoga, or how it would effect me upon returning home.  Yoga in India is very different from what we have come to know as a ‘yoga class’ in the States.  Looking back, it’s as if the teachings I received from the Shuklas simply seeped into my pores.  When I practice, refer to practice, or teach, sparks from my lessons in Gurgaon surface and emerge.  Sometimes they are jewels of understanding I didn’t even know I had, but that I recognize from my precious time with these inspiring yogis.”

Shuklacharya’s Retreat & Spiritual Centre near Bhimtal is both lovely, and conducive to health and wellness. I was fortunate enough to spend a few comfortable days there with my family. We received Ayurvedic massage treatments, complimentary tea brewed from Tulsi grown just outside our rooms, and served delicious satvik meals. A memorable highlight was the traditional fire ceremony at dusk.

Whether a student of yoga, or a traveler looking for a unique and restful experience in India, I highly recommend Shuklacharya’s Retreat & Spiritual Centre .

I was looking for a retreat in Himalaya on Google while i found Shuklacharya’s Retreat & Spiritual Centre and i really thank Google to help me find it !

Staying at Shuklacharya’s Retreat & Spiritual Centre  is a real moment in life !

The place is as simple and cosy as could be. Rooms are perfectly clean and comfortable and the food very tasty and healthy. I drank every day the amazing ginger and lemon tea prepared for guest.

The hosts and the staff are amazing, kind and very careful to your comfort. I enjoyed the very non-commercial way of teaching yoga through the practice of postures as much as the way of life.

Having facing the sun and mountain is just a perfect moment. I highly recommend Shuklacharya’s Retreat & Spiritual Centre  to every one who wants to have a retreat.

Don’t hesitate to visit this rare and beautiful place! It was my great pleasure to be part of a 4 month long study of yoga and ayruvedic principles/philosophy about two and a half years ago and I still live with and grow from my experiences at Shuklacharya’s Retreat & Spiritual Centre  every day!

Shukl’acharya, the owner and my teacher during my stay has such dedication, knowledge and insight. It was through his quidance and wisdom that I was able to find/gain the tools necessary to further my spiritual and personal growth. This has led to effective, positive and lasting changes in my life for which I do not have enough words of gratitude.

The accommodations are more than generous and the staff is eager to please. The resort has been thoughtfully engineered to provide privacy, peacefulness and magestic views of the mountains and sunrise from each room and balcony. I still miss the healthy satvik meals that were so well prepared every day.

I have no doubt that Shuklacharya’s Retreat & Spiritual Centre  means different things to different people. I saw a number of people visit for various needs and they all seemed to be well accomodated. It seems to be one of those amazing places that provides just the experience you are looking for when you need it.

For me it was a once in a lifetime opportunity that far exceeded my expectations. I will forever have a deep fondness, appreciation and respect for Shukl’acharya and his benevolent wife Samrita – for the knowledge and wisdom they so generously shared and for the comfortable and nurturing surroundings they and their staff provided during my stay.
I feel incredibly fortunate to have visited and participated in studies at this most blessed place.

If you want to truly relax from your life’s daily chaos, and/or simply immerse yourself in yoga and an ayruvedic lifestyle, Shuklacharya’s Retreat & Spiritual Centre  is the perfect place.

I was fortunate enough to spend a month studying traditional hatha yoga and ayruveda while at Shuklacharya’s Retreat & Spiritual Centre , and this time was not only enlightening but magnificent.

Shukl’acharya is a superb yoga and spiritual teacher and his wife Samrita is fabulous to learn ayruvedic principles and cooking from (every meal

I had was delicious and nutritious). They are an incredibly sweet and welcoming couple, who add the personal touch that leaves you with a specialized and everlasting experience.

I came to study yoga, and I’m so glad I choose Shuklacharya’s Retreat & Spiritual Centre  because my time was personalized and I was not in a more commercial course (many I know of only teach the surface, one right way, and despite them teaching yoga true sincerity can lack). I use the knowledge gained from Shuklacharya’s Retreat & Spiritual Centre daily and I certainly hope I can return again.

In addition, not only are the teachers and staff top-notch, the picturesque setting couldn’t get any better to explore in your free time or gaze upon from your terrace.

(I traveled in February 2013, but in actuality it was May 2011. Two and a half years later, I still reflect on my exceptional time at Shuklacharya’s Retreat & Spiritual Centre  which encouraged me to write this review in 2014).

My wife and I visited Shuklacharya’s Retreat & Spiritual Centre in June 2013. The main reason, why we were searching for such a place, was the great wish to get some answers for life questions.

It is not enough to say, that these two weeks were wonderful. “Wonderful” is not enough. This period was very much useful, it was “opening eye” period. Shukl’acharya gave us an opportunity to learn the “science of life and yourself” in all its aspects. We ate very “correct” food – vegetarian, tasty, different, but without overpowering flavours.

We practiced yoga – each of us different postures, because every person has his own state of body and mind; we had Ayurvedic massage; we studied and tried different meditation and breathing techniques, which, I hope, will help us a lot in the future.

But most of all we studied balanced life, life without high ups and downs, life with divine consciousness inside yourself. And I can’t imagine better person to lead you through such a life than Shukl’acharya.

Moreover I should mention all the staff, all people, who work in this ashram. They were very attentive, very kind for us and helped our stay problem free and took care of all our needs.

The place itself is very well located, you can enjoy the mountain views from veranda. It is quite and vibrant. Unlike many other places in India, here you do not have to think about the hygiene and security matters, but can focus on what you came for.

So, if you are looking for a quiet and clean place, where you can get as much new information and knowledge, as you can from the person, who really knows life and divine, Shuklacharya’s Retreat & Spiritual Centre is for you.

Thanks a lot, Shukl’acharya and all people of Shuklacharya’s Retreat & Spiritual Centre!!! We hope to come back soon.

This place is to me a portal for humanity. I came here with my partner to reconnect and deepen our yoga-asana practice and knowledge.
I am deeply grateful for what happened in these 6 weeks. I feel I grounded myself, coming back to reality. At all times I felt looked after and safe. As a couple it was a great experience, we shared the learning of a language/code together. (webmaster’s note – by language/ code, she refers to the spiritual communication)
In a very simple and human way, Samrita and Shukl’acharya gave us everything we needed at the time. Personally, I was full of fear when I arrived to the retreat, and by the time I left I was in balance. And thats a lot to say.

The food was incredibly amazing, the room beautiful and harmonic, the staff polite and friendly, and the teachings eye opening and enlightening. The place is easy to access, we took a train from Delhi and we had a taxi (arranged by the retreat centre) waiting for us at the train station. But you can also get a taxi from the airport.
Words really dont make up for it, but they give a hint. In few words> my heart opened with this experience.

I am happy to be contacted by anyone wanting to come to the Shuklacharya’s Retreat & Spiritual Centre, just ask Shukl’acharya and Samrita for my email.

Shuklacharya’s Retreat & Spiritual Centre is an ashram of rather surprising comfort.
The place has been built with a lot of love and detail to support the well being point of focus.
Rooms are equipped with everything you need and well designed to create a warm atmosphere. There is house keeping which allows you to really focus on what you came for without getting distracted. Ayurvedic food is personally chosen to suit your body constitution and focused to support an even mind and light body.

I whole heartedly recommend a visit to Shuklacharya’s Retreat & Spiritual Centre for anyone looking for a aptly named wellness holiday, yoga / Ayurveda therapy, a beautiful tranquil and spiritually restorative Himalayan holiday.; a yoga meditation retreat, self discovery and / or discovery of the ancient wisdom and knowledge systems at the root of Indo Vedic Hindu civilizations and traditions.
Everything at Shuklacharya’s Retreat & Spiritual Centre has been meticulously and thoughtfully designed to be conducive to one’s physical, mental, emotional, psychic and spiritual well being – from the sacred location to the food, the disciplines and routines that are observed faithfully, the natural beauty all around, the every need and convenience is taken care of, so that one can focus on the higher things in life and most of all the tremendous amount of energy, compassion and tapas/ spiritual power poured into the Shuklacharya’s Retreat & Spiritual Centre by Shukl’acharya and Samrita.
What distinguishes Shuklacharya’s Retreat & Spiritual Centre from many other places dedicated to Ayurveda / yoga healing is the tremendous amount of sattwa that is generated and flowing here, which makes Shuklacharya’s Retreat & Spiritual Centre especially conducive as a place for retreat and healing. It is really like a rishi ashram from the days of yore and in addition to everything else a gurukul where one can learn gems from the ancient knowledge and wisdom of the Himalayan Masters.
Whether one comes to Shuklacharya’s Retreat & Spiritual Centre for a few days, a few weeks, or even months, one will certainly derive great benefits in every dimension of life. It is a rare opportunity in this day and age to be able to visit such a place and I urge you to try it for yourself .
