"BEST YOGA RETREAT"
The value for money was amazing and we had the perfect balance of yoga and free time. It made the whole experience in such a beautiful location perfect. Also the teachers were so great and adaptable, for example we went to a hilltop and then another day the beach for morning yoga which was such a lovely experience and will add to my endless positive memories of this place.

Had an amazing 5 days with Preksha Yoga. As a beginner I was initially quite nervous, however the instructors were excellent in developing my understanding of a wide range of yogic principles. They are great teachers and very knowledgeable. The programme was very well organised. Accommodation and the food was great. 10 minute walk to mandrem beach and a short ride away from Arambol, which we had time to check out in between lessons. Very relaxing atmosphere which was difficult to leave.

This Place is really worth a visit! I felt very welcome! The stuff really cares for your wellbeing and is so friendly.
A big thank you to yogi madhav, who was my Yoga teacher while i was staying in the ashram. He is the embodyment of true Yoga! For me it was very simple to follow his instructions. I felt so motivated and happy for every session with him.
Dr. Bandekar is also excellent in his field!
With his sharp intellect he was able to answer every of my questions.

"Perfect place for Yoga retreat"
The place was calm and peaceful. The accomodation was clean and everything I needed was equipd. Yogi Madhav was professional and the morning meditation made my stress release. The Yoga Ashram was not located by Mandrem beach (about 10min walk), but it was very nice for me because the around the beach was busy and noisy.

Er hangt een heerlijke rustige vibe. We hadden dit on the go geboekt, een yoga retreat stond niet op de planning. Maar zo blij dat we preksha yoga hebben ontdekt! Mogelijkheid tot twee keer per dag meditatie en twee keer per dag yoga. Wij zijn beginners en kregen goede uitleg, maar kreeg tegelijkertijd de indruk dat het niet te makkelijk was voor gevorderden. Dus voor elk niveau een goede les. We zijn (helaas) maar 4 dagen geweest, maar hebben veel geleerd. De rust en het gezonde lekkere eten kwamen als geroepen na 4 weken hectisch India. Verder waren de bedden comfortabel, de badkamer schoon en was er warm water om te douchen.
Echt een aanrader!
