SWAN Yoga Retreat,Goa, is a resolve, a dream being lived in the service of Yoga and humanity. We are a team of yoga practitioners trained at the Bihar School of Yoga, who have dedicated our lives to the service of yoga, by means of providing the best possible service to our guests and students who come to stay with us in this tropical paradise located in the lush tropical valleys of Assagao, just outside of the township of Mapusa in North Goa. Sitting on the hills of a beautiful Indian jungle, immersed in nature, our retreat center utilises the healing power of Mother Nature to help our guest enhance their yoga practice, and strengthen their connection to the higher consciousness. Daily morning meditation classes, mantra chanting, yogic kriyas (yoga detox) and sacred fire rituals, are some of the things which set us apart from the other yoga retreats around Goa.
At SWAN Yoga Retreat, you will not only learn Yoga, but also the Indian way of life, a real understanding of the yoga philosophy which does not start and finish at the Yoga mat. We welcome all kinds of Yoga practitioners in our place: be it yoga beginners, intermediate level yoga students, or the ones who have been practicing yoga for almost their whole life. We all have to learn from and teach each other; this is how we understand yoga at SWAN. This learning and teaching is not restricted to the yoga shala or the yoga lectures, but it is spread throughout the day, inspired from the age old institution of the Ashram.
We run this retreat center on the principals provided by the tradition. In that the teaching is done in Gurukula Style- meaning the students/participants/seekers come and live with the teacher and become part of the family, and learning just happens on its own.
Our yoga school is a place devoted to sacred practice; a place where you can go to learn authentic yoga and meditation practices, in a safe and inspiring setting. Come experience ashram lifestyle in the comfortable, clean and natural setting of SWAN Yoga Retreat, Goa. A one of its kind yoga ashram in India.
