The south of Goa is well-known to be the most beautiful and serene part of the state. Backed by coconut plantations and green hills, without doubt it’s the home of the finest beaches. This season Turiya Yoga is more than happy to be offering their 200-Hour YTTC in a beautiful Ayurvedic resort which can be found near one of South Goa’s most peaceful and unspoilt seaside locations, cosy Patnem Beach.
This beautifully located Ayurvedic resort nestles between coconut trees only a 3 minute walk from the beach. This is where we enjoy the calming sounds of the waves and the sea-breeze as it dances through the palm trees. It has a large and comfortable yoga hall and also offers Ayurvedic treatments, soothing massages and delicious vegetarian yogic meals
Wherever you come from, our unique 200 hour program and the time you spend with us will move you deeply. Your daily routine will start early with a yoga practice - kriyas, asanas, pranayama, meditation - surrounded by nature and silence. After quieting the body first, we can then quiet our minds. After a delicious breakfast which enjoys all the gifts of tropical India, you’ll attend academic and technique classes. These are taught by professional and real yoga practitioners, that is to say people who maintain their yoga practice both on and off their mat. At the end of the day we finish with an asana, pranayama and meditation practice.
In general our practices adhere to Ashtanga Vinyasa (Primary Series), Ashtanga Vinyasa-based flowing styles, Traditional Hatha Yoga and Modern Hatha Yoga (which uses props). We find that our Modern Hatha Yoga classes help to balance the energy of these different dynamic styles while also focusing and deepening the students’ experience of the individual asanas. Only a few asanas per class are worked on and we use a great variety of props for helping the student to spend more time in each posture in a comfortable way. These Modern Hatha Yoga sessions help our students recover from all the learning and natural cleansing that takes place during an intensive course like this. The students also cultivate a deeper experience of the categories of body postures and different alignments. The props we use in these classes include ropes, belts, cushions, chairs and so on.
