Set amidst abundant tropical flora and fauna of the paradise on earth in the north Goan coast, this retreat has been designed as a deeply nurturing space. You will have the precious opportunity to study the chakras and learn how to master each one's essence and unite them all into a unified field of luminescence. Through the use of yoga and living consciously, you will be capable of balancing your life force with your mental, physical, and spiritual selves.
All ages are welcome as participants.
During this retreat, you will stay at Ashiyana Retreat Centre. Ashiyana Retreat Centre is an exquisitely designed yoga resort in Mandrem, North Goa. Surrounded by coconut palms, this tranquil spot is bordered by the Mandrem River and the Arabian Sea.
The accommodation ranges from simple en-suite beach huts to stylish wooden eco-lodges, and luxury adobe-style dwellings that are built in a beautiful palm grove and are faced towards the sea (which can be viewed from some of the upper floor balconies).
The palm grove dwellings are built using local wood, giving an Asian feel, with finishing touches borrowed from classical Indian design and plenty of natural fabrics and antique Rajasthani furniture. The beach huts are simple yet chic. All the rooms are spacious and comfortable with large windows and wonderful views. The en-suite bathrooms have been built to allow a little of the outside in with large open window spaces and blinds. Each room has ample cupboard spaces and its own balcony with a charpoy daybed.
The yoga and activities offer you an access to deeper connection with the different dimensions of your being, creating a safe place for you to relax, renew, and restore your energy. This deep work will support you to get in contact with your body and listen to it, move forward in your life, bring into light the things that are not aligned with your heart, and allow you to start creating new supportive and healthy habits.
You will leave the retreat with new tools to use in your daily life and a deeper knowledge of the seven main chakras, allowing you to step into your power and take responsibility for what you manifest in your life.

Due to a physical illness, she was drawn to explore a more holistic approach to her healing journey. Experiencing the wisdom and healing power of sacred holistic healing arts in her body and mind changed her. She had a big shift and her illness healed. She was fascinated with her recovery and her life did not make sense anymore. It was then when she started to deeply study the healing arts and sacred ways of being in alignment with nature and her heart. This path has taken her to become a yoga teacher, world traveler, and holistic therapist.
