    The retreat center will be your home amongst nature during yoga teacher training in Goa. This mindfully-chosen venue is home to a working organic spice farm, passed down from generation to generation, filled with natural energy. This difference is experienced both in the sound therapy of the forest and the freshness of the vegetarian and vegan meals prepared each day. Wake up each morning to views of lush forest during daily asana practice and glimpse the stars from underneath giant palm leaves. We aim to provide the optimal environment to reconnect with your inner self: after all Smriti means remembrance. The plantations are totally organic. Students can learn organic multi-cropping system and see how natural organic farming is maintained. For example to protect vanilla crop from bacteria we depend on a particular species of ants which eat the bacteria. There is perfect balance in nature; all we need is to harness it. There is natural honey produced in the farm and one can learn how to use these organic spices in cooking or for medicinal use.

    • Review by Anna from Sweden

      "Smriti Yoga was and will always be the place of transformation for me. I was traveling through India and Sri Lanka when I decided that I wanted to do a yoga teacher training. I searched online for different schools around in India and came across Smriti Yoga. I didnt know much about the school than what was written on their web page. But my gut feeling told me that this was the place, so I applied. About a month later I was in this huge organic farm in Goa surrounded by nature, beautiful experienced teachers and students. I started a journey that came to be one of the most amazing experiences ever. I would really recommend Smriti Yoga for its space, food and great vibes to really transform and grow with the help of three beautiful teachers and also the hospitality from the family at Transhikar spice farm."
