FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY + YOGA RETREAT
31 July – 4 August
Join Rakhee & Aimee, for a 5 day (4 nights) workshop in Kumarakom, Kerala, INDIA.
Kumarakom is famous for its backwaters, and is set in the backdrop of the Vembanad Lake, the largest lake in the state of Kerala.
We will be staying at one of the best resorts in Kumarakom that has a 150-year-old story to tell. The bungalow, built by the English missionary, Henry Baker, is often called the little jewel of Kumarakom. We will be staying in rooms that are a perfect blend of Kerala’s traditional architectural charm juxtaposed with modern facilities. Kerala is famous for its simple eco living where almost everything is derived and taken from nature. Come to enjoy this peaceful organic setting with walking paths all around and the famous Kerala backwaters as a serene backdrop.
