Full Description

Jeff is very experienced at teaching students of all levels and the depth of his experience, playful approach, ability to challenge students to safely push their boundaries and his love of meditation, will give you the perfect opportunity to deepen your practice both physically and internally. In this amazing environment right on a beautiful beach you can enjoy making new friends, eating delicious, healthy food and can return home feeling recharged, energized and relaxed.

Please see for more pictures and details.

Accommodation is in beautiful, simple shared ensuite beach hut bungalows. As we will be sharing the retreat centre with other guests who are doing ‘drop-in’ classes with local teachers and the number of huts that are available to our group is limited we would like to encourage people to share. Consider coming with a friend or if not we can pair you with someone else of the same sex who is also travelling alone. Often a large proportion of people coming on Jeff’s yoga holidays will be coming alone so sharing is part of a retreat experience and is a great way to make new friends. For those who prefer their own space a limited number of singles are available.

Arrival day is on Sat 11th February 2017 when we will have a welcome session in the late afternoon and then there will be 2 yoga classes per day. There will be one afternoon without any yoga to allow for longer excursions (very probably a dolphin boat trip which is included in the holiday price), or more relaxation on the beach!

The morning session at 8am will be around 2.5 hours and will be followed by a delicious vegetarian brunch. It will be the more vigorous and dynamic practice and will usually include some meditation and/or pranayama. A creative, playful and explorative ‘deep slow flow’ asana practice emphasizing the breath, mindfulness and skilful appropriate action that will – by using and building up through a range of appropriate options – allow students, from the less experienced to the more advanced, to discover how to find and work peacefully at the level appropriate to them.

The afternoon session at 4.30pm is around 1.5/2 hours and will be a more mellow, soothing and nurturing practice, delving into areas such as yin yoga, restoratives, pranayama, chakras and meditation. A delicious vegetarian evening buffet will then be served.

The rest of the time will be free to do as you please…enjoying the beach, hammocks, massage, reading, optional activities and excursions, coconut trees and sunsets etc!

There will be a final optional yoga session on the morning of Sat 18th February if your travel timetable allows. Taxi transfers to and from the airport can be arranged.

If time allows consider taking an extra few days on either side of the retreat to help you acclimatize, get over jet lag and enjoy spending more time in beautiful Goa.
