Full Description

Dilek Adas
Dilek Adas worked in various film production companies as a production coordinator while she was practising yoga, but after she found herself in India and Cambodia, she decided to allow herself the opportunity to let yoga to change her life and took multiple teaching training courses at Trimurti Yoga India and Dharamshala.

She did volleyball and rock climbing sports at the professional level of interest and after five years of practicing Yoga Power Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Anasura, Yin yoga and Pilates. She has a certificate 200-hour Yoga Alliance multiple yoga styles (Ashtanga, Hatha, Sivananda, Yin yoga, yoga therapy, Vinyasa, and Pilates reformer and mat teacher certificate).

During her stay in India, she met with the Dalai Lama as a loyal student of spirituality. She is trying to add yoga and eastern philosophy in her life journey as much as possible while trying to add classes focused on the anatomy of the person and their physical asanas, breathing and dynamic fluid blends.

She took workshops with the aim of expanding her knowledge, including Meghan Currie, Geoffrey Deveroux, Nico Luce, and Elena Brower. She also attended the Yoga Conference in May 2015 and got the chance to participate in Kino Mc Gregor, Meghan Currie, and Gurmukh's classes. She keeps practicing and learning, and loves to share the knowledge.

Location
Ashiyana Yoga Retreat Center is located on the beautiful and unspoiled Mandrem Beach in the very north of Goa. Set amidst abundant, tropical flora and fauna, it has been designed as a deeply nurturing space where you can relax your body, calm your mind, and awaken to your inner peace of being.

Accommodation
All the rooms are spacious and comfortable with large windows and wonderful views. As far as possible, the en-suite bathrooms have been built to allow a little of the outside in, with large open window spaces and blinds. Each room has ample cupboard space and its own balcony with day-bed. Ashiyana Yoga Retreat Center is grateful for the natural beauty of the tropical paradise and have complemented the beautiful surroundings with Asian attention to detail and comfort.

Palm groove

Much of Ashiyana's accommodation is in a beautiful palm grove fronting the Mandrem River and facing towards the sea, which can be viewed from some of the upper-floor balconies. The accommodation is in the form of luxury eco-lodges, tree-houses, and stone-built houses set amidst lush tropical gardens, statues, and water features. The lodges and tree-houses are built of local wood giving an Indonesian feel, though most finishing touches are borrowed from classical Indian design, with plenty of natural fabrics and antique furniture.
