Welcome to Anam Cara Yoga Retreats !!!

The Mysore ashtanga retreat in Goa is designed to help you dive deeper into this system of practice , experience the magic of the sequence , understand the methodology to help you grow within your practice with other fellow yogi's. This retreat will be mainly led by Maya Rao who is a certified Mysore ashtanga teacher ,she has studied with Guruji himself.

Maya is an authorised Ashtanga Yoga teacher from the ashtanga system by Sri k Pattabi Jois known as Guruji. She has been practising yoga for 15 years , first starting with Iyengar yoga and then living in the Bihar school of Yoga ashram in Munger. She believes that a holistic approach towards yoga offers the chance of self transformation and a deeper understanding of the seeming duality of life.

Ashtanga Mornings
Yin evenings
Yoga Nidra
Fire ceremonies

Our plan is to start with Mysore mornings where we will enjoy a led and self practice , breaking asana's downs and going beyond them , understanding how they work within our body and how to turn the practice into a moving meditation.

After Breakfast we will have a small workshops led by guest teachers on yogic philosophy , Mudra's , Meditation , mythological stories , the origins of Mysore ashtanga, everyday we will have something different for you to learn and absorb.
Post lunch we will have a daily yoga nidra session which will include guided imagery, music and full body relaxation techniques to help you just take it all in , all you have to do is lie down in shavasana and enjoy.

Every evening we will have a restorative yoga session where we will heal the body and help it recover from the days intensive practice. Working not only with muscles we will relax the joints , tendons and ligaments aiding in balancing the body.

Expect, unexpected surprises with music therapy , chanting , kundalini yoga, fire ceremonies and lots of knowledge on nutrition and wellbeing. The food will be designed to help fuel your practice with lots of superfoods and balanced meals.

We will be spending the week at the Inner Temple in Moira , Goa , a quaint little goan village .The villa is just stunning with lots of greenery , a pool to cool off in, massage therapies on offer. A nearby river for evening walks and sunset meditations to soothe the soul.
