I was on the 7 day retreat in Goa and learned a lot over one week. I got a very warm welcoming, clean room, comfortable bed, good food, interesting and professional classes. The teachers were very helpful. The experience went high over my expectations! The location is perfect just 10 minutes walk from agonda beach, a very calm and peaceful atmosphere at the hostel/school with a nice sunset view from the rooftop. If you consider going for a yoga retreat (where you also have the possibility to enjoy the beach and the outside surroundings) I would say Shivoham is perfect! :) Thank you for a wonderful stay!

"Young professional people "
Everything was good, starting from accommodation, food, teachers, etc and finishing with the beautiful sunset on the beach.
I’m really recommend this school to other friends and people, cause these guys really care about you, they gave a lot of information, training in different types of yoga.
Food is delicious, room is clean.
10 min to the amazing beach.
Also they have Ayurvedic doctor. I’ve got some information about how to take care of health, he made for me list of Ayurvedic medicine. I made big shopping there too)))
So in my memory only positive emotions, I’m happy to be there, meet nice people.
Now I have 200 hours certificate, but if I’m gonna go one day to India, I’ll book yoga retreat with Shivoham yoga school)))
Thank you Rimi, Vivek, Dr. Praveen and another students, who were there

"Deep dive into yoga"
I very much enjoyed the ashtanga yoga classes (for me sometimes a bit challenging), as well as other yoga styles. With the teacher I always felt comfortable.
The alignment classes gave a very helpful professional insight for understanding the ideas, meanings and correct posures of yoga; that helps a lot for the improvement of ones own practice.
The breathing and meditation sessions were held with much passion and a broad spectrum.
The atmosphere from the teachers and of the group was focussed as well as fun. I took a lot of profit, although I only took part for a 2 week retreat. By not participating all classes I could combine that with several hours at the calm (=in November) Agonda beach or neighbour coves, thus combining vitalising refreshment and relaxing holidays.
The good vegetarian indian food supported the healthy lifestyle.
And the location in Agonda provided a nice remote above sealevel and walks through green botanics, including watching sunsets over the sea and some eagle birds cruising from the rooftop.

"My experience in this yoga school is amazing and wonderful "
It was a real discovery that yoga and meditation are not even about you but about the unity. Getting up early in the mornings is not so heavy thing you can do. It comes easy when you feel more energy after it. The you feel the energy of vegetarian food, tasty without meat. And finishing, the sea beaches lift you energy level to the top.

"Good combination of yoga practice and meditation"
I liked the instructors, the location, the classes and the other participants. It met my expectations of a week of relaxation combined with learning more about yoga. We also had some good theorethical classes.

"New school in GOA with good perspective"
There were some delays in accommodation and the beginning of the course (with equipment and so on) but the organizer Rimi was trying to do her best, to provide us everything for the comfortable stay. The food was very nice, healthy and Indian. The company of students created a good atmosphere to be in. Yoga teacher Vivek seemed to have very good knowledge in the subject, I liked his teachings and ashtanga yoga classes. As for yoga retreat the schedule seemed busy but it is very nice that you can choose which classes to attend, and can be fully occupied during the day, or just leave and spend some time by the beach or traveling. The location of school is on the private beach, but it is relatively close to the Palolem beach, where the action is on.

Rishikesh was a great place to have done TTC! I loved doing meditation sessions on the roof of the hotel, looking toward the hills surrounding the area. All the teachers were so passionate about yoga and actually practice what they preach. I really appreciated everyone's down-to-earth attitudes in this course.
The hotel staff were excellent about accomodating our food requests and I just felt so healthy throughout the experience.
I think if you go into this experience with an open mind, and an expectation for it to be challenging in ways that you've never anticipated, there is a lot to be gained. Yoga was really hard and it was hot! There is a lot of reading that needs to be done outside of just class hours. And life just slows down overall.

"Trop courte retraite"
J’ai beaucoup apprécié ma semaine de retraite à Shivoham. La salle est sur le toit, et pratiquer à l’extérieur est très agréable. L’enseignement est sérieux et mon niveau de yoga s’est amélioré. Les professeurs sont sympathiques et à l’écoute. Les chambres sont spacieuses et climatisées. La nourriture était bonne.
