WHAT TO EXPECT TOGETHER DURING OUR 2 WEEKS TOGETHER?

You will deepen your yoga, meditation and pranayama practice and also relax in the sun, swim in the warm sea and pamper yourself with Ayurvedic massages.

Tara, with her 40+ years of experience in India, will show you the treasures of Goa! Sea and beach of course and also a freshwater lake, local markets and surprising shopping streets and much more!

Each day we ‘tune in’ to the chakra of the day and make excursions in alignment with it! With sunset, we often sing mantras on the beach and some evenings we will go out to enjoy some Indian dance and music performances.

You will be with a fine group of like-minded people in a beautiful place called Jivana which is outside the busy areas of Goa.

Enjoy unspoilt quiet beaches, swaying palm trees, blue sky, warm sea and sunshine.

Yes, this retreat will be a very special (chakra) journey that will enrich your life forever!

THE YOGA

During this 2-week yoga retreat, you will be gently initiated into an in-depth practice consisting of yoga postures, meditation and pranayama (yoga breathing). It does not matter whether you are a beginner or an advanced student. Because we are a small group, Tara will have plenty of time to give you personal instructions.

Everyone can delve into the consciousness of her or his body, breathing and being. Even if you have never done yoga before, this is a great opportunity to get used to a non-demanding yoga practice at your own pace.

The morning classes are in a more dynamic Yang Yoga style, while we end the day with more soothing Yin-Yoga exercises. Every day is dedicated to one of the chakras and we go deep into the transformational quality of each of them. In this way, we develop skills to work with these 7 energy gates of healing and develop more vitality and pleasure.

There is a beautiful yoga shala, an oasis designed to transform and restore the soul. The perfect place to relax and come back to your (true) self!

The cottages at the retreat centre are in a quiet location. Each cottage has a lot of privacy, is protected from the sun by coconut palm trees and is surrounded by dense greenery of lush, exotic gardens.

Each cottage features a private porch with seating area and an en-suite bathroom.
The entire retreat location is surrounded by coconut trees, banana plants and cashew trees.

The beach is only a 10-minute drive away by bicycle. You can enjoy beautiful walks on the white sandy beaches and breathtaking sunsets every day …

You will enjoy many delicious fresh raw food as well as Indian dishes.

The Ayurvedic based food is inspired from various regions of India and made into the tastiest of traditional vegetarian dishes.

Our food is regarded as medicine, prepared with much love for your wellbeing.
