Our story

Ashiyana is the ever-evolving realisation of our deep desire to support, inspire and empower others on their individual health and wellbeing journeys. From modest beginnings back in December 2006, as a small Yoga retreat centre in sleepy, North Goa, Ashiyana has grown into what we are today - a global support network with far-reaching positive impact...

Through our wellbeing app, wellness retreat centres, training courses, detox programs, yoga and wellbeing experiences, social and environmental projects and more, we offer a range of services aimed at supporting others to thrive and live their best life.

What we're about

Our Philosophy

Our belief at Ashiyana is that when you relax deeply and truly nurture yourself, you realise your essential nature; your ‘home within’. When you face the outer world from this place of inner calm, you are less likely to be troubled or disturbed. Joy then naturally follows from being at ease, and free of mental and physical tension.

Our Vision

Our intention is to hold you in a loving embrace, so that all your worldly troubles drop away, and you are left with the essence of you – the 100% vibrantly alive, happy and healthy version of you.

Our Mission

Our mission is to do all that we can to enable YOU to feel truly at home when you are with us at Ashiyana, as part of our family – accepted, embraced and cared for.

Our Ashiyana Family

Our staff, guests and dogs flourish through feeling part of a family unit with shared, daily lives. The way that Ashiyana expresses herself has evolved over the years, but the essence of what we offer is always based upon compassion, trust, integrity, and a commitment to empowering the individual.


We constantly ask our guests (many of whom return regularly) about their experience with us, and what we keep hearing is that Ashiyana feels like their ‘home away from home’ – we believe that this is because we see Ashiyana as an ever-evolving family of like-minded souls.

Giving Back

It is key to our vision that we are not only supporting the wellbing of our guests, but also those around us whose wellbeing is impaired by poverty, lack of education or extreme circumstances. We collaborate, partner with, and/or support a number of incredible, local projects that are very close to our hearts.
