Refresh, reconnect and remember: yoga retreat in South Goa with Emma Landolt
Join Emma for twice-daily Yin and Yang yoga in a tropical paradise. Nestled in the lush, emerald foothills of the Western Ghats you’ll get to experience the outstanding natural beauty of nearby mountains, forests and South Goa's most picturesque and untouched beaches.
“It is clear that she poured her heart and soul into crafting a retreat which allowed her students to strengthen as yogis and as people. She gave us the confidence to stretch, balance and breathe in new ways and made space for all the deep reflection that comes with that.”
Classes will be held on a picture-perfect shala overlooking the beautiful Talpon river. Each day will focus on one of the 7 Chakras, which will correspond to a different element and part of the physical anatomy. This will influence the theme of the postures of both the Yin and Yang practice each day.
Morning practice will begin with Pranayama breathwork to connect and energise and will flow into moving meditation with a dynamic, vinyasa flow. Expect graceful, creative sequencing, plenty of core strengthening, and fun, playful arm balancing and inversions if you fancy them, with plenty of options if you don’t.
The evening practice will be Yin Yoga; floor-based, long-held meditative postures and Yoga Nidra; the awakening yoga of sleep. We will end each evening session with meditation, during which time you will be invited to connect with intention and with awakening to your own freedom and consciousness.
Also included in the retreat is a riverboat cruise from the villa where you can see eagles, kingfishers, egrets, and enjoy the fabulous flora and fauna that South Goa has to offer. There is also the opportunity to visit the nearby wildlife sanctuary and to explore the wonderful local beaches by tuk-tuk as well as options to enjoy a sunset kayak and take a cooking class!
All levels are welcome on Emma’s retreat! If you are an experienced yogi this will be a chance to delve deeper into your practice, if you are a complete beginner it will be an opportunity to begin your yoga journey.
