India

Highlights

Yoga Tropical paradise Re-energise yourself

Overview

Providing you with a safe and nurturing environment to enable permanent positive life changes, whilst giving you the time for new experiences, adventures and friendships. This unique opportunity gives the perfect balance of relaxation and activity, time to yourself versus group fun. Our itinerary has been designed to give a good balance of deep internal work for mind, body, and spirit along with glimpses into authentic Goan life and lots of light-hearted down-to-earth fun and laughter with your soul group! There will be quiet times for stillness, meditation and journaling, to explore, enhance and evaluate your inner experience.

Yoga and Meditation are an essential part of our program, however we’ll also use other powerful healing modalities where needed. Each yoga session will be different as we journey through the week, but set around the yin yang philosophies combining Indian yogic principles with Traditional Chinese Medicine, to bring balance into your life and release emotional baggage.

Yin/Yang yoga is a practice that balances the slow-paced Yin yoga with the traditional Yang yoga (Vinyasa and Hatha). Yin/Yang yoga has its roots in China in the Taoist concepts of yin – a feminine, passive, cooling energy and yang – a masculine, dynamic, warming energy. The Yin/Yang yoga practice uses both types of yoga to provide both physical and spiritual balance.

In Yin yoga, the floor-based poses are held for a longer period of time, typically three to five minutes or longer to target the connective tissues and fascia, rather than focus on the muscles. This increases flexibility while working on the meridians (energy channels) of the body. The practice allows for deep relaxation and meditation.

Yang practices of dynamic movements, flows and standing poses. Hatha yoga asanas and vinyasas that warm the body, stretch and strengthen the muscles and stimulate and balance the chakras.

By combining yin and yang yoga, energy and fitness is improved, whilst promoting relaxation and deep healing.
In this stunning location, this retreat promises an unforgettable experience to treasure forever.

Instructors

Jo Crowder

Hi, I’m Jo your resident yoga teacher,

I’m a Yoga Alliance Certified teacher who has been practicing for over 25 years and running yoga retreats for the last seven. I was initially attracted to yoga for its mental and spiritual aspects, but later realized yoga’s healing benefits on my body and mind after damaging my neck and back in three car accidents. The last one led me to totally reevaluate my crazy, busy and successful life in the UK and relocate to Bulgaria.

Hi I’m a Yoga Teacher with a PhD in Metaphysical Science, a Certified Holistic Life Coach & Spiritual Counsellor and Wellness Retreat Organiser, with 500+ hours of Yoga Alliance teacher training in India and Ibiza; including Hatha, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Yin, Yin Yang and Aerial yoga.

I overcome many health issues and addictions by choosing the holistic route to get my health back rather than be drugged up on anti-depressants and unable to function. This fuelled my passion for health and wellbeing, not just physically but also mentally and emotionally. I left the soul destroying Corporate world behind with my only plan being to take a year off to get well! Studying was my therapy and Yin yoga was that missing piece of the jigsaw I was so desperately searching for! The powerful healing benefits I received have been astounding and I just felt this strong desire to share what I’ve learned with others and make a real difference.

You don’t have to take as long as me to reclaim your life! Let me educate you on stress management and prevent the devastating effects it can have long term.
