Join us at the beautiful Ashiyana Retreat Center in Goa, India to engage in practices to empower yourself physically, mentally, and spiritually.
Join us in the jungles and oceans of Goa this January 2019 for our annual Kamarupa Retreat with Susanna Harwood Rubin and Todd Tesen at the beautiful Ashiyana Retreat Center. We will spend the week diving deeply into the many practices of yoga from the overt to the sublime, from yoga asana to meditation, pranayama, mantra, mudra, and puja.
Todd and Susanna have been spending time in India since 2008, and are delighted to be celebrating their years in India together by sharing their experience and love of India with you. As yogis, we engage in our practices to empower ourselves physically, mentally, and spiritually. Learn new practices that will shift your yoga. Learn tools to manifest your life’s desire.
We will meet for early morning meditation and asana practice. As we finish our savasana, Ashiyana’s buffet brunch will be set up and we can enjoy our breakfast together. After breakfast, you can go to the beach, stay by the pool, arrange a spa treatment, go into town for shopping, or simply relax.
In the late afternoon we will gather again for an asana practice filled with myths, mantra, mudra, and pranayama. By the time the sun begins to set, we will be finishing our evening meditation and will join together for Ashiyana’s spectacular dinner buffet. After dinner, we can spend time together, rest, or participate in Ashiyana’s free evening events, ranging from live music to Yoga Nidra and meditation, from cinema to kirtan.
