A holiday combined with yoga is a natural corollary as both teach relaxation. Yogamea in collaboration with Rishikesh Yog Peeth offers the beginner as well as the serious learner some great yoga in Goa.

For the serious learner there is a 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training course at Yogamea.
Agonda beach, where Yogamea is located, is in the southernmost area of Goa with the Arabian Sea knocking on its doors. Just as the sea meets the land so here spiritual minds come together for contemplation and yoga practice. The long beach with its untouched sands is ideal for a beginner yoga learner to practice yoga 'asanas' or to sit in meditation without fear of injury or disturbance. Yogamea offers a most affordable destination yoga retreat experience as well as a professional yoga teacher training programme for it is easy to feel relaxed as well as spiritual in this quiet corner of Goa.
The ancient yoga teachers looked for locations that abounded in nature and were conducive to meditation and so they chose mountains and rivers. These places had a calming and healing effect on the mind, body and awakened the spirit. However, the new yoga learner looks for additional value in a yoga retreat and the beautiful Agonda beach by the Arabian Sea can be both a holiday destination as well a center for yoga learning, healing and rejuvenating. Contemplation and meditation in the company of Ridley turtles, in a beach that is home to these rare turtles, will definitely add a new dimension to yoga learning!

Rishikesh Yog Peeth was a transformational experience that fulfilled much more than my expectations. The 200 hour teacher's course is holistic and balanced with a particularly generous dose of spirituality and Eastern Mysticism. I would highly recommend this course for anyone who wants to look inwards and find peace while looking good on the outside too : ) I take what they taught me with me everyday and look forward to the time when I'll return.

Really enjoyed the 'Yog Peeth' experience. I was looking for a strong foundation to start a path in yoga and learn how to become a great teacher and that is exactly what I found. They have an amazing vision for the future so I envy the people studying with Yog Peeth about a year from now.Written by: Carrie Sikman
