The Dead Sea is nature's ultimate spa combined with the excitement of a modern vacation destination. Dead Sea Israel offers a vacation you will never forget. If you're travelling alone, with a loved one or bringing the whole family, you are sure to find the perfect attraction for everyone.

Visit ancient archeological sites, experience the extreme desert with walking tracks and Jeep tours, enjoy a sunset with breathtaking landscape, take a day off in one of many luxury spas and of course swim, float and enjoy the Dead Sea itself.

This program will change your life forever and give you effective tools for increasing the vital energy, health promotion and stress management.

Fascination of Israel

Jerusalem is the official capital and holy city to three world religions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam, while Tel Aviv brims with beaches and bustles with urban vitality. Then there’s the Dead Sea and Masada, the stark, stunning Negev and fertile Galilee. The number of museums and cultural institutions per relative area is larger in Israel than anywhere in the world.

Visit Israel Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall

Its Mediterranean climate makes Israel ideal for all-season travel. If summers can be hot, with temperatures reaching 90ºF (32ºC) in places (and even hotter in desert locales like the Dead Sea), you’re never far from the coast, where it’s always a little cooler. And in winter, while much of Europe and the U.S. is shivering, most of Israel basks in sunny temperatures that hover around the 70ºF (21ºC) mark. There are some rainy days, but it’s by and large a dry country. That poses challenges for Israelis in terms of water conservation efforts, but for visitors it means pack the sunblock and shades – whether it’s January or July.

"Heartfelt gratitude to you, Slava, for such a unique opportunity to relax and at the same time to work with my body and my soul. It was a pleasant stay and a fruitful work for me. Your program clears my mind and body from all superfluous and unnecessary thoughts and actions, that in the end it seems that this time was the most beautiful and the happiest time in my life for many years.

This is a wonderful program. Here everyone will find something for themselves. Good opportunity to feel what the soul desires most globally or now in a given period of life.

I am very glad that life gave me this trip to Israel to Ananda-school. Thanks for the healthiest holiday of my life. Good luck to all your endeavors. And long life :) Thank you for the warm and spiritual atmosphere. It is great here at Ananda! 
And it's so gooood that the Dead Sea is near!"

"This program is suitable to all, but especially to people who are interested in yoga and healthy eating.

Personally, I’ve got exactly what I came after. The program combines a sufficient number of spiritual practices, hatha yoga, meditation, as well as free time, which in everyday life we all so miss, especially for the time to contemplate.

This is the best vacation for body and soul! Here everything is harmonious, even nature and the mountains around promote relaxation and the discovery of your superconsciousness. I have got only positive emotions."

Totally unexpected but it's unbelievable. My martial arts is totally different and much improved. I can't explain exactly, whether it's balance, breath, fluidity of movement... It just feels amazing and great. And I have continued pretty much doing everything we were doing every day except for modifying the diet slowly of course as I described.

So G-d willing I'm planning on continuing because it just plainly works. The energization, yoga poses, meditation, chakra balancing, and whole natural fresh foods.

I am also a health practitioner and religiously observant as well. Sometimes even health professionals need a major tune up, detox and stress reduction. I did the program with strictly Kosher fruits and vegetables that I purchased locally, which I prepared myself, and the program was great for my body, mind, and soul.

Slava has become a good friend along with a positive influence in my life. He is one of those few whom I have met who actually practice what they teach. He lives this stuff and always strives for improvement and to reach a higher place while giving over what he already knows. He is patient, professional, ever helpful, gives good directions and answers questions to the best of his ability, and if he does not know, he will tell you so.

Two thumbs up from me, and I highly suggest this simple yet powerful program for anyone wishing to get back on track with their health and well being. Thank you so much for welcoming me into your home, and for helping me along in my journey.

Thank you so much my friend, and keep up the good work."

I was looking for a spiritual meditation retreat. They say ‘ask and you shall receive’. When I came upon Ananda Retreat in Israel, I just had that feeling that this is where I would go. I had been wanting to do something like this for years, literally years. Well, of course my intuition was bang on.

When I arrived at the Ananda Yoga retreat, I at first was a bit skeptical. But I know that God has a plan for all of us.

The surroundings – the Judaen desert, the inside, minimalistic, but comfortable and welcoming……I was looking for a retreat, not a 5 star hotel, and a retreat is exactly what I got. I completely deepened my yoga practice, my meditation practice. I deepened my connection to God and cleansed my physical and spiritual body. Would I do it again…in a heart beat.  This was well worth the money and well worth my time.  Thank You Slava for a wonderful experience.
