with Prashant Tewatia and Sunkiss Yoga love

We welcome you to a wonderful 7-day Yoga & Meditation experience in the charming and serene Beach resort of Ashiyana Goa.

This unique adventure is an approach that will ensure you flow into your practice at your own pace, whether you are new to Yoga, want to settle into the basics or are looking to deepen a well-established practice.  

You will also relax in total tranquillity, peace, love and harmony of Ashiyana while enjoying the beautiful beach and cool breeze of the Arabian Sea, while you deepen your practice with a fresh perspective that acknowledges your mind and body’s wisdom. The practice will include Yoga Asana integrated with Pranayama (the art of breathing), Yoga Nidra, Mindfulness Meditation sessions, Chi Gung, and Natural primal Movements.

You will also enjoy the fascinating culture of Goa, spectacular evening sunsets on the beach, excellent gastronomy, and unique hospitality.

At the end of the retreat, you emerge with a new lens on your unique experience and also get a rich understanding of how to practice Yoga and Meditation safely and wisely - whether alone or in a group.

with Chris Nelson

Framed by two classes of yoga a day (dynamic morning session and gentler afternoon session), this retreat offers a deep insight into our BEST ME World of wellbeing™. Our signature retreat offers a series of interactive talks which begin with inspiring you to imagine and believe in the best possible version of yourself. This requires a consideration of the full gamut of your lifestyle - relaxation, sleep, nutrition, exercise, fun, relationships, career, creativity and abundance. We will then introduce you to our unique and powerful model - HOPE, which enables the alchemical process of BEST ME. Before you leave, we will ensure that you have a very clear plan of your next steps, once you return home. This will probably include sessions with one of our expert practitioners.

For many, BEST ME Retreat™ will be the perfect way to begin your journey with us as it is so inspiring and empowering, and gives you an overview of our BEST ME World of wellbeing™.

Ashiyana Yoga

Based on our unique form of ‘Ashiyana Yoga’, this retreat leaves you free to relax and take treatments for much of the day.

A wonderfully relaxing holiday, popular with those who are either new, or relatively new, to Yoga. Our teachers are all highly trained, and very gentle, so you will be completely safe and in good hands. Please remember that you don’t need to be flexible to do Yoga - if your body is a little tight that is a good reason to try Yoga ;)

Yoga & Kite Surfing

Goa is becoming a famous destination for kitesurfing, and there’s nothing quite so wonderful as surfing the waves, followed by a mindful session of Ashiyana Yoga.

The wind and waves are best in February and March for experienced kite surfers, but for beginners and less experienced kite surfers the gentle sea that prevails for much of the rest of the season is just perfect.

with Gérard Arnaud

Director of Vinyasa Yoga Studio. He began yoga in 1969, and has been teaching and running teacher training programs since 1978.

He created his modern method of Vinyasa Yoga early 80s. 

He lived in India for three years, and he has returned for many visits.

He was initiated into yoga and meditation by his master Sadh Sivalingam at Rishikesh.

He is certified by BKS Iyengar in Puna, Sivananda ashram in Rishikesh and practiced with Pattabhi Jois (Ashtanga Yoga) in Mysore (India) and Maui (Hawaï).

International teacher, he has taught in Rishikesh (India), in Canada, in the United States, in Australia in Europe, in Japan and he has enriched his experiences in Africa.

After studying Eastern Philosophy and trying different methods of meditation (Vedanta, Tantra, Vipassana, Zen), he has carried out long-term research in psycho-somatology, all the while pursuing an intense yoga practice.

In a socio-medical context, he has given classes in prisons, in orphanages, and in drug rehabilitation centers. These classes were accompanied by discussion and therapy sessions that he moderated with a psychologist.

He teaches classes at all levels, linking teaching and creativity to share his expertise with dancers, mimes, actors, musicians and athletes.

For him, yoga is also an art that rests on a rigorous technical foundation aiming to attain and create bodily and spiritual harmony.
