Samata Holistic Centre is located 3 kilometers inland from Arambol, a village in the northernmost part of Goa near to the Maharashtra border. Arambol is an ideal starting position to discover the beauties of Goa. With nightly drumming sessions on its long beaches, a vibrant market, lots of international and Indian restaurants, and a large tourist crowd, Arambol allows you to quickly sample the colorful and eventful social fabric of Goa. At the same time, tucked in the lush palm tree jungle away from partying tourists, nothing at Samata is reminiscent of the busy Goan life.

    "The retreat at Orihi was an amazing experience. The whole week consisted of doing yoga, relaxing (by the pool) and (very important!) eating delicious food. After the retreat I felt completely refreshed. I would definitely recommend this Supersoul Yoga retreat to anyone who wants to fully recharge in the wonderful environment of Istria." website, edited

    "The universe does this thing, where it aligns you with people, things and situations that match your vibration. The higher you’re vibrating, the more you will attract things that are beneficial to your wellbeing…I was grateful to vibrate with supersouls from around the world in my second home country Croatia at this year’s Supersoul Yoga ‘Soul Temple’ retreat in Croatia." website, edited

    "Although I knew I needed this retreat I'd never imagined so much transformation could occur in just a few days time. From the gorgeous, serene setting to the yummy, clean eating to the group of wonderful people, this was hands down my favorite yoga retreat to date. Each yoga session had its own theme and even though the group was of mixed levels of experience, it managed to challenge each one of us in our own ways. I never wanted it to end and I can't wait to do it again next year. I actually felt part of a community and even though we went our separate ways after the retreat, the bond remains. Thanks to Supersoul.Yoga for a wonderful get away!" website, edited

    "I went to a Supersoul Retreat at a time when I faced many challenges and changes in my life. That retreat was the catalyst for a huge shift in my consciousness which has radically transformed the way I view life and "problems.” I appreciate the organisation, the teaching and the stunning locations. I have gone back to Supersoul retreats and will continue to do so annually.", edited

    "The Supersoul retreat as a whole was an absolutely enlightening journey, it was an experience in which has impacted me on so many levels, with moments so rich in culture, beauty of nature, spirituality, genuine friendships, healing, and indulgence in yoga in so many realms.The breakfasts were absolutely the most delectable, wholesome delicious breakfasts I've experienced! The lunches at the cafe at Tamarind Tree Cafe were phenomenal! I was so impressed everyday eating there! The quality, tastes and diversity, and service was arguably the best I've ever had. And then, Matsya!!!!! Our dinners were delectable. Matsyas chef Gome is the most talented, inspiring, and creative chef. His food is heavenly, he makes eating a whole experience with tastes, colors and textures that are invigorating and nourishing. The food while on my stay was amazing.And then the yoga! Rachael MADE this trip incredible, as she took us on daily adventures, she showed us the truth and depth of Goa! WIthout her, I would not have seen or experienced, or immersed myself in such culture! She is the most beautiful soul, and she devoted her time to us. Her classes were powerful, full of wisdom, healing, and challenges! The yoga was incredible."

    "In my memory, the week feels like the sweetest dream: the location was such a sanctuary that supported each of us in our own blossoming and process. The weave of the group, the setting, the food (!!)--which really was symbolic of the holistic nurturing that we received on all levels--and the warmth was like a delicious blanket that we all got wrapped up in. A time away from everything other than whatever needed to happen within each of us, perfectly supported by everything on the outside. Total magic. Thank you."

    "Our retreat was such a success for me, because all needs were valued. Whether someone was looking to engage in heartfelt discussions around our physical practice, or retreat in a more solitary manner, or whether someone was vegetarian, vegan or omnivore! All were welcome to explore, reevaluate or savour the intricacies of his or her yoga-life practice with the loving support from the staff and retreaters the Supersoul team brought together."

    "It was definitely a magical experience and a true reawakening of the soul. I can't thank the team enough though because you added so much to the experience everything was so well organised. We could really just immerse ourselves in the experience of being in that special environment of beautiful beings"
