Feb 25th – March 1st
(MahaShivratri Long Weekend)
Welcome to the third edition of my signature Conscious Retreat for the Soul in Goa (Mandrem)!
I have hosted many retreats in the past, but this series of retreats brings together a consolidation of tools I’ve found to be the most effective and powerful in all my years of exploration and practice.
I’m delighted to be back with an all-new module that invites those individuals who would like to look inwards and bring about ever-lasting change. We will do so by practicing a mix of pioneering tools and modalities, the likes of which are not easily accessible in India. Some of these are very popular in the Western World but Indians have been slow in appreciating and adapting themselves. In this retreat, I will be offering a mix of traditional, ancient and contemporary practices, like Iyengar Based Hatha Flow, , AcuYoga (Acupunture + Yoga), Cacao Ceremony and Shamanic Trance Dance, Shamanic Breathwork, Osho Active Meditations, Wim Hof Breathwork, Yin & Restorative Yoga and Yog Nidra.
If you’re willing to open your heart and mind, immerse yourself earnestly these 5 days and take this Soulful Sojourn with me and 11 other Wellness Warriors, then this yoga retreat happening in the February will be one of the best gifts you will ever give yourself. Don’t worry if you’re a complete beginner or have been practicing Yoga in one form or another for years now, you are eligible to attend and all set to gain a truly unique experience with our one-of-a-kind Wellness Retreat in India.
The little known village of North Goa, Mandrem, is truly a pearl of the ocean. It stretches across a land of 800 meters adorned with white sand, sand dunes, and shrubs. The tranquil village has magic powers capable of whisking you away from the hustle bustle of city life while helping you truly know yourself.
Yoga retreats at this peaceful abode will be nothing short of enlightening. Through Iyengar based Hatha Yoga and meditation, you will slowly learn to turn your attention inwards and tune into the stream of consciousness. As the retreat will progress, you will ease into practicing Active Meditation.
This yoga retreat in Goa will leave you with only cherished memories and a reformed sense of self.
What are the Benefits?
“The most important person you meet in your life is your higher self.” – Matshona Dhliwayo
Have you ever found yourself feeling like you have everything a normal individual could ever want- a stable job, a loving family, great set of friends- but still there’s something amiss? There’s a restlessness or a sense of incompleteness? Or just feel a little lost not knowing what your next step should be?
In most cases, I realised that this is a consequence of the deep disconnect one has with their own inner voice. The noise all around us- worrisome news from world over, Instagram posts on our feeds that makes one feel FOMO (fear of missing out), responsibilities of our families, planning for the future- keeps us from hearing our own thoughts and even a vacation to Thailand/ Europe/ Maldives can only make one feel good temporarily, as it can merely distract you for the time being.
Real change will happen only when you put in the inner work that every individual must in order to find true peace.
This retreat will help you jumpstart on this journey of innerwork.
Some things that you may feel after this Retreat:
- A potentially life changing experience that can sow the seeds of permanent change in you
- Awareness of alternate ways of living- simplification of needs/desires/expectations
- Identification of what really matters to you and the ability to manifest it
- Inner Empowerment- feel stronger to take on the complexities of modern life
- Release of patterns and self-sabotaging behaviours for good
- Sense of lightness in your heart and mind
