Program

What to expect

You will practice yoga, meditation, and pranayama classes and enjoy being with a fine group of like-minded sisters in a beautiful place. You will also relax in the sun, swim in the warm sea, and enjoy various excursions in tune with the chakra of the day!

Tara, with her 40+ years of experience in India, will show you the treasures of Goa, including its sea and beach and also the freshwater lake, local markets, surprising shopping streets, and much more!

You will sing with sunset mantras on the beach almost every evening and can also enjoy some beautiful Indian dance and music performances.

The place where the retreat takes place is outside the busy areas of Goa, with an unspoiled quiet beach, swaying palm trees, blue sky, warm sea, and sunshine. Yes, this retreat will be a very special (chakra) journey that will enrich your life forever!

The yoga

During this two-week yoga retreat with like-minded sisters, you will be gently initiated into an in-depth practice consisting of yoga postures, meditation, and pranayama (yoga breathing). It does not matter whether you are a beginner or an advanced student. Because it is a small group, Tara will have plenty of time to give you personal instructions.

Everyone can delve into the consciousness of her or his body, breathing and being. Even if you have never done yoga before, this is a great opportunity to get used to a non-demanding yoga practice at your own pace.

The morning classes are in a more dynamic Yang yoga style, while you will end the day with more soothing Yin yoga exercises. Every day is dedicated to one of the chakras so that you can go deep into the transformational quality of each of them. In this way, you develop skills to work with these seven energy gates on healing, more vitality, and pleasure.

There is a nice yoga shala. This is an oasis designed to transform and restore the soul. The perfect place to relax and come back to your (true) self!
