Earth Yoga Village is a yoga community that lives consciously in connection with nature. With this programme we offer a unique opportunity to fully immerse into the world of yoga and community living as well as further deepen your knowledge and qualify as a Yin & Yoga Nidra teacher for 100 Yoga Alliance accredited hours under the Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Program. Taking the time to absorb and reflect upon lecture materials, your own asana practice and familiarise yourself with teaching while at the same time apply yogic principles.
Yin yoga deals with subtler aspect of our being, letting us go deeper into ourselves. We are moving from the structured body to the energetic with the help of myofascial compartment and median channels to develop a functional, mindful approach to the practice.
Yoga nidra (yogic sleep) is a wonderful deep relaxation which supports your asana (physical yoga) practice helping you to find deep rest and stillness. It reduces daily stress by teaching pratyahara - turning attention inward for your own healing awareness, and dharana - concentration, meditation to deepen your yoga.

Venue HighlightsRETREAT LOCATION
Set among lush green jungle within a short walk to a paradise beach, you will find Earth Yoga Village to be extremely peaceful and the ideal place to relax. It is your refuge from a busy life and is conveniently located in South Goa on the beautiful beach of Palolem, which is known for its blissful vibes, laid back people, and stunning nature.
Palolem Beach is largely unspoiled and is inhabited by both local fishermen and by foreign tourists who live in shacks along the shore or in the main village. The location offers an ideal place to explore the stunning beaches, beautiful local villages, and surrounding nature outside of your retreat schedule. Earth Yoga Village staff members are strongly engaged in making the village more eco-friendly.
The lodge runs partly on solar power and Earth Yoga Village staff members work hard on adding further eco-friendly measures. Connection with nature is vital and they strive towards that connection in every day life and with every action.
