Retreat location

Goa is the best location to learn and practice yoga in India. As one of the smallest and more recent State in India, Goa offers the opportunity to experience the local culture, traditions and tropical Nature in the smoothest and safest way.

The kindness and sympathy of the people make of Goa a welcoming home for all its visitors. The melting- pot of cultures enriches the spirit and the mentality of the place and explains the presence of a stable and animated community of foreigners. Especially the North- Goa, where we are based, testifies the successful encounter between East and West. Naturally, this meeting finds its best form of Goa Yoga.

To explore yoga in Goa is an experience which any yoga lover should try at least once. The energy and the spirituality of this land boost the dedication and the motivation of all yoga practitioners.

The teacher training courses are meant to reflect and amplify this alchemy. Upaya Yoga is the most well-known and established School in Goa due to the quality of its learning; the authenticity of its environment and unequaled location.

All the teacher training courses are well-rounded and balanced. They are open to beginners and advanced practitioners longing to add value and meaning to their journey.

In between the classes, some of the students are conquered by the beauty of the endless and vast sandy beach; whereas others relaxed pampered by the sounds of the tropical fauna in the lush tropical trees.

A yoga teacher training course at Upaya Yoga is a lifetime experience.
