Kranti Yoga is please to offer a weekly Yoga Intensive Course directly on Patnem Beach. This course is suitable for students of all levels and the course is designed in order that you can learn about yoga whilest enjoying the comforts of a beach holiday. The course will be adapted to suit your ability and prior knowledge of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. It is ideal for those who would like to develop or deepen a daily yoga practice without the responsibility of becoming a teacher.
The course will provide you with the fundamentals of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga: breath, bandhas, vinyasa and drishtis. Alignment Classes will run alongside Led Ashtanga Yoga Classes for you to gain familiarity with The Primary Series. Technical workshops will take place in the afternoon for you to focus on key areas such as hip opening, backbending and transition techniques.

It provides an insight into what Ashtanga Yoga is and allows you to start developing an Ashtanga Yoga pratice if you haven't been practicing Ashtanga Yoga previously.

...and my expectations were high! After visiting their website I was convinced to book my first yoga holiday at Kranti Yoga and I couldn't have found a better place to relax and connect with myself. Kranti Yoga is a beautiful place right by the sea, full of chill-out lounges and yoga and meditation platforms (there is even a tree house where we would do our morning breathing meditation). I am still blown away by the beautiful and loving atmosphere - no music needed, you could feel the harmony. The staff was sweet and helping out wherever they could, the cottages were clean and charmingly arranged with everything you need to feel at home (I loved the hammock and swinging chair) and the kitchen team did an incredible job...every meal was a sensation!! My husband and I enjoyed the yoga and meditation sessions very much (the teachers were amazing - Thank you Eve and Kara!) and we can't wait to come back again. Thank you Kranti Yoga for an extraordinary experience!!

Charming place at the Goa beach, fabulous-delicious-yummy food, friendly staff, amazing teachers. Packed agenda with yoga practice and meditation, but in the same time with so much easy and zero stress. I came with severe upper back problems that lasted for years, and get out of it with no pain at all. It truly changed my life.

Brilliant yoga teachers, top quality classes. Very organised and reliable schedule. Location in a village and directly on the ocean front is to die for. The food is fantastic. Only downside is the presence of many insects and no cleaning materials to sweep the room or repel the bugs. But this is high quality yoga and I really hope to be back again! It’s totally the yoga dream place.

Kranti Yoga was a wonderful place to experience my first yoga retreat/yoga holiday. The classes were challenging but able to be adapted to beginners. All of the instructors were warm, kind, and incredibly knowledgeable about their practice. The atmosphere was calm, relaxing, and beautiful.

I loved every single second at Kranti! The shala staff were phenomenal, from accommodating requests to keeping the shala spotless - you couldn't ask for anything better. I completed my 200 hour Ashtanga-Vinyasa Teacher Training and am confident with the skills I learned at Kranti to teach a yoga class. Our lead teacher Vicki Reynolds was one of the most inspiring teachers I've ever had (university professors included) she really knows how to teach. All of the other teachers were fantastic as well (Steph, Alex, Ida, Grace, Faye, Enzo, Didier, Fran, Laura, Julia, Lisa). The food was great, and with the shala being a few steps from the beach you can't ask for anything better! Already planning my next trip back to Kranti for my 300 hour YTT :D

Kranti Yoga is the place to be if you’re looking to begin or to progress as a teacher. The caliber of Teacher Trainers there are absolutely priceless. I recently finished my 300hr YTT here and I loved every single second of it. I initially had reservations about doing the course through Kranti Yoga as it is a very western yoga school, but was pleasantly surprised to find the perfect blend of essential western teaching menthodology with traditional Indian culture and philosophy. You will not only learn about in-depth anatomy, adjustment and alignment, indian philopshy and practices, you will also deepen your personal practice to the next level under constructive guidance. The accomodation was fab, the food was amazing and you’re right on the beach. What more could you want?! I’m forever greatful for my experience at Kranti.

I did my 100 hours Yin Yoga teacher training in April on my second Visit to Kranti. The content and structure of the course was great with amazing teachers to guide through the course material. I would recommend the course to anyone looking to deepen and add to their practice, a great addition after 200hours Ashtanga/ Vinyasa. Good Vibes at Kranti Yoga ✨????????????

Spent almost 3 weeks in Kranti Village this April on an intensive course and I must say it was worth every penny (or euro in my case????). Great accommodation, even better food and yoga classes all day long. My course entitled me to one hour one-2-one class each day focused on ashtanga primary series asanas and their correct alignments and modifications which was super helpfull and I’m forever grateful to Ida for being a great and patient teacher:) Definitely recomment Kranti as a place to enjoy both yoga and beach chill out time.

I found Paradise! I can't describe how happy I am that I found Kranti Yoga. After travelling for so long to many countries I got to India. I knew that there had to be a place like I had found in Indonesia before. A place where you just feel at home. As soon as I entered I was overwhelmed by its beauty, peacefulness, love in every detail, friendlyness of the staff people, rooms.... the Yoga teachers are very well trained, the program is great if you want to experience or deepen Yoga and Meditation. Best Food. Everybody smiling. I am coming back.
