Chakra standard

The Chakra standards are situated at the center of the resort, in a building opposite their leisure pool with views of the beautiful tropical gardens and palms.

The Chakra standards all come with a comfortable bed, private bathroom, storage cupboard, fan, and air conditioning. Some of the Chakra standards also have a private balcony. All of the Chakra standards have twin beds that can be combined together to accommodate a comfortable, double sleeping arrangement. You will find the Chakra standards decorated in a variety of colours.

Chakra rooms

Chakra is a Sanskrit word translating into “spinning wheel”. Ancient yogic wisdom says that there are seven main energy centers in one's body. Each of your chakras flows with a color-coded vibration frequency in the universe which can influence your physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. When your chakras are perfectly aligned with the universal flow of energy, every aspect of your life becomes harmonious and you are able to connect to your bliss. These Chakra rooms and cottages are carefully designed to compliment to various chakras.

Chakra cottages

The Chakra cottages are situated less than a one-minute walk from the sandy Morjim Beach and opposite the beachfront Chia Lounge Restaurant. Each of the cottages is surrounded by palm trees and the luscious tropical greenery that Devarya Wellness prides itself on. Each Chakra cottage has a glass front offering you a light and airy space for your yoga holiday or retreat.

All of the cottages come with a comfortable bed, private bathroom, storage cupboard, fan, air conditioning, and a private balcony. All have twin or king size beds that can accommodate a comfortable, double or twin sleeping arrangement.

Program

Yoga and Ayurveda are two segments from the same fruit of ancient knowledge, practiced side by side, in perfect alignment for centuries. The skilled teachers with years of experience in Hatha, Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Yin, and Iyengar yoga will guide your daily yoga classes.

If your mind, body, and spirit are in harmony with the universal energy, you will have good health. When something disrupts this balance such as injury, emotions, age, seasonal change, or even lifestyle; you will become unwell and full of diseases.

The five elements combine in the human body to make three life forces “doshas”. You all have a unique combination of the doshas but one dosha is usually more prominent and this throws off your balance.

Ayurveda uses the knowledge of your doshas to bring harmony and welllness back to you, by restoring your dosha balance during treatments, therapies, and lifestyle changes.

During your stay, you will receive a private consultation with the in-house Ayurveda doctor. Ayurveda, “Ayus” means life and “Veda” for knowledge in Sanskrit – is the science of life. Ayurveda is one of the oldest medical systems in the world.

During your consultancy, your “dosha” will be determined by an Ayurvedic doctor from Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. You will be advised on the best nutrition, therapies, treatments, and lifestyle changes according to your dosha in order to follow a personalised wellbeing path during your stay and beyond.

  • Vata dosha (space and air)
  • Pitta dosha (fire and water)
  • Kapha dosha (water and earth)

Start your day off with a dynamic yoga class at 8 a.m. in one of the spacious and airy roof top yoga shalas, followed by fresh fruit juices and a healthy wellness buffet breakfast in the Chia Lounge beachfront restaurant.

You can use your free time to soak up the sun, go on leisurely walks, enjoy incredible sunsets on the beach, and explore the beautiful state of Goa and its local attractions.

Afternoon yoga at 4 p.m. is a slower, more gentle class easing you into the evening. Buffet evening meal with fresh salads and authentically prepared Indian delicacies are served from 7 p.m. Round off your day with one of the evening activities at 8 p.m. including kirtan, meditation, and classical Indian music.

Ayurvedic massages

Rejuvenate yourself with three Ayurvedic massages at a time of your choosing. These will be holistic full body massages with oils used based on your dosha and physical need.

Shirodhara

Shiro; meaning head and Dhara; meaning flow: An Ayurveda therapy that involves continuously pouring warm, herbal oil over the forehead; also known as the Ajna Chakra. This is an area of highly concentrated nerves and containing the circulation of your vital life force, or prana.

The flow of oil onto the forehead creates a vibration whilst the oil saturates the forehead and scalp, penetrating deep into the nervous system.

The gentle pressure and soothing warmth of the oil will allow the body, mind, and nervous system to experience a deep state of rest, only comparable with deep meditation: Balancing the mind, stabilizing emotions, and healing the body.

Indian head massage

Relax during your Indian head massage treatment. This is massage techniques based solely on therapeutic touch over the scalp, head, face, and shoulders to induce deep relaxation.

This technique aims to restore balance by working with the three higher chakras: Vishuddha, your throat chakra, Ajna, also known as your third eye, and Sahasrara, your crown chakra.

Focusing on areas of the body that hold the most stress, your tension will melt away leaving a sense of total calm and leaving you with a sense of being light.

Retreat location

The course will take place in Goa, India. Devarya Wellness, located in a coastal village in North Goa, overlooks the Morjim Beach. This beautiful beach stretch is also known as Turtle Beach after the endangered olive ridley sea turtles that nest on its shores during nesting season. A quiet and peaceful setting, Morjim with its lush green hills, clean beaches and the Chapora river running through it, is a popular destination with foreign travelers and expats.
