New Beginnings Retreat in Goa, India, 6th – 16th January 2014
Following on from the incredible success of our 2013 retreat, Chaya return to Goa in January 2014 along with Selina Barker, inspirational life design coach and Annabel Jones, highly-acclaimed yoga teacher recently featured in the Times.
Together they will guide guests through a powerful 10 day programme that brings together yoga and practical life coaching to help guests take stock of their lives, reconnect with themselves on a deeper level, identify their true passions and purpose and create a plan for 2014 - that will have them living in alignment to their dreams and fulfilling their potential.
Hosting daily sessions on the deeply practical art of living a created life, Selina's unique approach of combining a practical coaching approach with the yoga philosophy allows her clients to understand how to get clear on what they truly want in life and how to make it happen. Meaning guests will learn how to start bringing their dreams alive from the moment they leave the retreat.
Set amongst cashew and mango groves and only minutes from the magnificent Aswem beach, is one of Goa’s most luxurious eco retreats; Kaju Varo. Winning Conde Naste Traveler's award for best luxury boutique stay in Goa, this is a truly awe-inspiring home for Chaya and we are extremely excited to be hosting another retreat here. Each individually designed eco-lux villa demonstrates contemporary elegance and minimalist design, creating a perfectly serene and peaceful environment for our guests to unwind.

Each guest will be given the opportunity to take away an individual practice, designed to gently challenge and open the body whilst promoting a deep ongoing feeling of loving and receiving.
