Iyengar Yoga Holiday
We like Ashiyana so much that we are going back for our 5th year!
Come and join us and enjoy a week of transformative yoga at this gorgeous retreat located on the beautiful and unspoilt Mandrem Beach in the very north of Goa. Set amidst abundant tropical flora and fauna, it has been designed as a deeply nurturing space where you can relax your body, calm your mind and awaken to your inner sense of being.
The Ashiyana location offers a balance between the serenity of a coconut palm grove, bordered by the enchanting Mandrem River, and a beautiful quiet beach with the invigorating sound of the waves breaking against the shore just beyond the dunes.
Mandrem, a remote and sleepy fishing village in northern Goa, has a number of bars and restaurants, an internet cafe, a travel agent, a small organic shop, general grocery store and places to rent motorbikes or hire taxis. Thirty minutes away by road is the large market town of Mapusa, which has good coach connections to other Indian towns and cities. Anjuna and the night market are just a half-hour away for your shopping expeditions.
It is possible to bring non-yoga friends and partners at a discounted rate for a shared room including the meals.
You are advised to take out travel and appropriate cancellation insurance when making any bookings.
To book your space a deposit of £350 is required. Book early, spaces are limited and usually go fast!
Flights and transfers are not included in this price.
During this yoga holiday, we will practice yoga twice a day. The mornings (07.30 am – 10.00 am) are dynamic and active and in the afternoons (5 pm – 6:30 pm) more regenerative and relaxing with some Pranayama.
Yoga equipment will be provided by the resort. There are 4 fully equipped yoga shalas in the grounds. We will be using the round shala that is equipped with ropes and all the rest of the yoga equipment to practice Iyengar Yoga.
Two beautiful meals are served daily (breakfast and dinner) while during the middle of the day you are free to explore the beach, go for a swim in the Arabian Sea, swing from a hammock, take a dip in the pool, read a book, get a massage or visit the neighbouring villages and take in some of the fascinating Indian culture.
