Agonda Om Yoga Kutir

The yoga school is located on a small hill, overlooking lush green farmlands. The hillock on which the school is built has an abundant plantation of coconut, cashew, jackfruit, and papaya trees. The yoga school has comfortable and newly refurbished accommodation.

They have dorm rooms, shared rooms, and private rooms that can suit all budgets. The school has a beautiful purpose-built yoga shala that can accommodate up to 20 students at a time. The shala is built at an elevated location on the hill.

The atmosphere and yogic vibes are great, away from the hustle-bustle of the beach but close enough to hear the ocean while you start your day with meditation. Apart from that, the property is often visited by the beautiful languors, eagles, kingfisher, cows, buffaloes, and peacocks. There are also termite mounds in the gardens to show how ancient and rural this land is.

A typical day during your holiday

During your yoga holiday, you will have an opportunity to live by the rhythm of nature. The yoga training schedule begins at 7 a.m. with a short morning prayer followed by a pranayama session. Then there comes the morning session for the traditional yoga postures before breakfast.

Then you will have some time to yourself for self-study and self-practice before you begin the afternoon and evening sessions of yoga philosophy and Vinyasa-yoga asanas, followed by relaxation and meditation.

There will be some inspirational cultural activities, such as Satsang (devotional songs), lectures on yoga-related subjects, audios and video lectures. During this yoga teacher training you will be provided with three yoga vegetarian meals including fruit refreshments and green tea. The Yoga Cave Initiative encourages students to go to sleep early about 10 p.m. as that is conducive to the yoga training.

This is a holistic course that gives you a diverse introduction to the postures and philosophy/culture of yoga. You will be introduced to mantra chanting, cleansing techniques, breathing, or pranayama techniques. Asanas are in different styles to give you diversity in your practice.

If you are a budding/qualified yoga teacher or you could be a new yogi all full of energy and hope to enter the world of learning yoga, then The Yoga Cave Initiative team of teachers will give you a gentle introduction to yoga and start you off on your yogic journey. Whatever is your level and goals our teachers are committed to your development. The Yoga Cave Initiative will give you practical tools to take to the world and share with others.

Retreat location

Goa itself has an amazing multicultural history. All nationalities live here, life is different from the rest of India. Agonda Beach has been voted as one of the cleanest beaches in Asia. Agonda has a good balance of nightlife and yogic vibes.

Over the last few years Goa might have developed a reputation as the party capital of India, however, Goa has still many undiscovered beaches and untouched nature waiting to be discovered for yogis. It is only a 90 minutes drive from the airport. Expect to be on a journey of joy, bliss, and transformation.
