Ashtanga & Yin Yoga Retreat

A weeks yoga vacation in a colourful paradise. Hosted by me, Iona, at the most beautiful wellness centre in Goa: 'Devarya wellness'.
Which unlike some yoga holiday packages promise and don't often deliver- I can guarantee to be true, as I composed the email whilst sitting poolside, here at the centre, after a couple of months as resident teacher. The centre, surrounded by the sounds of tropical birds, palm and banana trees swaying in the breeze hosts the most amazing selection of four yoga shala spaces, over looking a choice of two swimming pools -large & small, relaxation zones & winding tropical pathways to a variety of rooms: standard Rajhastani rooms, chackra inspired rooms, cottages and a Royal suite. The luscious grounds of Devarya are set just off the beach- (1 minute stroll away) where the centres amazing Chia Cafe providing fresh juices, teas, vegan and vegetarian dishes are served daily, all part of the yoga retreats package. Over looking the white sandy beach, blue sea, fisherman boats and sun loungers- there to lie back and relax on, stroll along or dip into at your leisure between classes.
 
Your yoga classes will be hosted by myself daily, morning and evening. Teaching my dynamic offering of strong ashtanga vinyasa, developing your stamina, over all strength, balance and detoxifying your body of impurities. Whilst the afternoon classes will offer an opportunity to relax the muscles and unwind in restorative classes, all hosted at the beautiful shala spaces at the yoga centre. 
 
As well as the beautiful centre, the yoga classes and the beach to enjoy; along the coast, you have cool cafes & bars to enjoy if you wish to explore this side of Goa or do some shopping at the many beautiful boutique stalls- selling stylish cheap to more extravagant designer clothes such as Jade Jaggers designer boutique and her contemporaries. Wild nightlife, if thats something you want to experience and bustling day and night markets, where you can pick up an authentic indian bargain, watch live music and eat authentic cuisine or western alternatives from many stall's selling vegan & vegetarian street food
