It had always been a dream of mine to go to India so it was the perfect opportunity for me to spend a week in Goa to practice Yoga every day and to spend time in the beautiful nature of this remote part of the country. Agonda is in the South of Goa covered in forests with a long pristine beach. The Yoga retreat is located at a river leading to the sea. I stayed at a lovely hut right at the river where I could relax and prepare for my Yoga class. The beach is in walking distace so I could to go there after the Yoga sessons and swim and enjoy the nature. At Shiva Shakti Yoga in Agonda I practiced Yoga with a motivated and engaging teacher. Through the physical exercises and the meditation and different breathing techniques I gained a new perspective on the relation between the body and the mind which is very benefiting in this hectic time we live in nowadays. I liked how the days were structured: We started with Yoga in the morning at sunrise followed by a small breakfest. After dinner there was time to spend at the beach or explore the area. In the late aternoon we had another Yoga session and evening dinner. The food at the retreat was always delicious and carefully prepared and vegetarian. The family who runs the place is very kind and I feel very fortunate that I could stay at their place and experience something so wonderful and positive. I can say that it was not only a vacation but also a changing experience and I am definitly planning on coming back to Agonda.
The trainning was intense and challenging! I learned a lot! The teachers were so eager to teach and the staff is very nice. But most of all we felt into the wild somehow due to the amazing nature and surroundings, which added peace and great perspective to our training.
I came to Shivashaktiyoga for a yoga teacher training. The accommodation itself is really simple and sober, but the surroundings are beautiful and very peaceful. We were totally focused on the training itself which was intense but very satisfying. I am not exaggerating if I say it changed my life. During the course it was challenging, but now I realize better what it did for me. The guys who organize the course are very efficient and helpful, the teachers - in a very different way - taught me loads of things I never did or even heard of during the years of yoga before this. So I definitely recommend the training.
Simple rooms , but amazing location , in the heart of jungles . The atmosphere is great and staff if nice and friendly . Yoga teachers r the best
