The Teacher course with Kavaalya a is a time in my life that I will treasure forever. I grew more, mentally and spiritually in that month than any other time spent at school, university or on previous travels. My understanding and relationship with yoga has fundamentally changed and I have a much deeper connection to the practice and within myself which I can now enjoy and explore confidently in my own practice and integrate into my life at home.

Yoga ashrams in India are for anyone from anywhere, with any background, nationality, religion or gender.

Yoga in India

There is no other place on earth like India to study yoga, if you have not been to India before, you can’t possibly understand the reality of this ancient science. If you’re serious about it, sooner or later, you could experience yoga in India.

Yoga belongs to humanity, but it has a home, India.

Yoga in India is an art, it is where it recovers its full meaning, from fitness to union, understood as intimate participation in reality. It’s an interior process where you consciously breathe into your body and experience an intimate relationship with the wonder that is you.

Experiencing yoga in India changes your perception of life, because that is the essence of its purpose, to bring freedom by helping people to connect to their true nature of being fearless and joyful.

The success of yoga in India does not lie in the ability to perform asanas but in how it positively changes the way we live our life and handle our relationships. Yoga is a conduit to joy, it’s an attitude enhancing tool more than anything else, and it only requires your breath and your attention.

Yoga in Goa

The beautiful beaches, the positive vibe and the shadows of the palm trees, the feeling of warm air and sand on your skin, the smell of saltwater in your nose, create a perfect environment to practice yoga in Goa. The warm weather helps to improve your flexibility and the quietness of the area is a basic ingredient to calm your mind.

“Yoga Goa” is the perfect rhyme, while yoga makes you feel connected to yourself, Goa makes you feel connected to nature. That is why most of the students that come to Goa, leave with the intense feeling of transformation, of being reborn, it is a turning point in one’s life.

Learning yoga in Goa is to access a perfect equilibrium between the east and west. You find excellent native teachers eager to transmit their knowledge and view of life, balanced with a western influence that comes from the Portuguese times.

On top of that, the people are laid back and very friendly. The Goans are very hospitable to foreigners. If there is any kind of problem everyone is willing to help. They radiate positive vibes which help to create a peaceful environment. Here different communities and religions live together in peace and harmony.

Yoga in Goa or Yoga in Rishikesh?

Well, it is not a matter of best or worst, they are just different and it is important to say what the strengths of every place are:

Teaching
Rishikesh is said to be the yoga capital of the world, so, of course, there are great centers with amazing teachers. The tradition of Yoga in Rishikesh comes from ancient times compared to Goa, but many of the yoga masters moved to Goa in the last 10 years, because the conditions of this place have made it very attractive and adequate to set up yoga centers. The result is that from the quality/authenticity point of view both places are great choices.

Location
This is a question of personal taste, mountains or beaches? But it is worth considering the question of how crowded and commercially oriented the place is. In terms of space, Yoga in Goa is best because there are loads of beaches where you can enjoy solitude, while Rishikesh, being a small city and a strong spiritual pole of attraction, is noisy and sometimes a bit annoying for the number of people with different interests and agendas. It takes deep investigation to find places for yoga in Rishikesh that keep the essence intact.

Weather conditions
Following is a brief chart for the exact details, but in the light of the numbers, conditions are kinder in Goa, for practicing yoga.
