10 Day Retreat with Steffy White in Goa, India
6th – 16th March 2016

Following on from three truly wonderful years in Goa, Chaya return once again to India for their fifth retreat in March 2016 with the inspirational teaching of Steffy White.

We’re extremely excited to host our fifth retreat at a brand new venue in Goa. Set back in the seclusion of the deeply peaceful Goan countryside, is our incredible new Indian home, 'Yoga Varo'. In untouched nature, ‘Yoga Varo’ is a purpose-built sister venue to award-winning ‘Kaju Varo’ (our other Goan retreat venue). Alongside an awe-inspiring hill side shala with tropical panoramic views, accommodation comprises of a large villa with pool, alongside a selection of individually designed eco villas. The location is approximately 10 minutes from Ashwem beach by car and there will be a twice daily beach shuttle service available to all guests.

All our Goan venues demonstrate contemporary elegance and minimalist design, creating what we feel is a perfectly serene and truly zen environment for our guests to unwind. The staff are second to none and we dearly love them; they are some of the best we have worked with and will look after your every need.

Steffy’s beautiful, nurturing teaching will guide guests through a heart-opening and expansive practice during our 10 day ‘Nourish’ retreat. Using yoga, meditation and pranayama she will create a safe space for you to connect with your heart energy. Using this connection, the practice will gently enable the clearing of any mental and emotional blocks, thus enabling a new understanding of how to best nourish and love yourself. All whilst cultivating a deep strength and flexibility in the physical body, to support this new level of self-awareness and healing.

The retreat is suitable for all levels of yogic experience – whether you are a new yogi or have a long-term practice.
