Mathew and Agi are two amazing beings. Generous, gentle hosts and patient yoga/meditation teachers who understand the Buddha's maxim that "health and happiness relies on moving the body and stilling the mind".
We have meditated for years now and were looking for a way to broaden our mindfulness practice into the body through yoga [...having been disappointed by the North America's expression of Yoga as fitness (at worst) and wellness (at best)]. We were delighted at the fusion of Mathew's deep spiritual practice with Agi's profound connection through yoga.
We enjoyed the intimate twice-daily yoga classes, (1:2 teacher/student ratio!) often and concluded with guided meditations, in their immaculate and comfortable home cradled among the lush hillsides covered with the "green jig-saw" of Kuttikanam's tea plantations. Their fresh and delicious traditional Kerala meals (pure-veg) were delightful and completely satisfying.
We were pleased that we had ample time in between yoga sessions and meals for my daily visit to the neighbouring Sahyadri Ayurvedic Hospital for a massage/treatment, while my partner had some time to reflect on readings from Mathew and Agi's spiritual library. (Thank-you for introducing us to Nisargardatta's "Pointers"!)
Finally, words fail us to convey our gratitude in connecting with Mathew and Agi as guides along our spiritual path! Angels!!!
