Soulful fun in the Sun
16th February – 29 February 2020
The perfect mixture of holiday, exercise, meditation and healing..
North Goa is one of those spots that you can still call paradise.
Every day you wake up to amazing weather, its hot in the day so you can enjoy time in the ocean and cool at night perfect for sleeping. We will be staying in Mandrem, it’s the quieter area so we can sleep at night, meditate, do Qigong and Hara Yoga, walk on the beach all in a peaceful environment. However, Ashwem and Arambol are only minutes away and one can enjoy all that these areas have to offer. Goa is juicy, and you will find it all here. There are places to party, great restaurants with delicious food all at a fraction of the prices in the West. Arambol is buzzy and alive there are many music gigs and dance shows to enjoy over a meal. World class Masseurs, tarot readers, astrologers, and psychics are all available to consult. And if you enjoy dancing there are ecstatic and bliss dances where you can dance your heart out in wholesome environments.
£425 GBP per person
There is always magic in Goa. Its the lure of its unending white sand beaches,necklaced by swaying palms, clear blue skies swooping to meet chiffon green waves.
Charles’ fusion of meditation, tantra, qigong, Hara Yoga, breath work and movement for a healthy mind, body, and spirit started in the 1990s, he has studied with masters in India and Japan. He teaches privately, delivers workshops, trainings, master classes and retreats all over the world. His practice is gentle, meditative and deeply healing. His motto is: Healing in Happiness.
Charles’ friends enjoy his deep meditative style. His work is based on five tenets-movement, stillness, awareness, love and compassion. His classes offer much more than a series of stretches and ohms. The focus is on awareness and nervous system resilience, plus self-healing mechanisms of the body and mind. Straight from the heart, Charles’ sessions will work wonders for beginners to highly experienced practitioners. You will learn some simple and easy-to-follow sequences that will open you to greater health and vitality.
As Charles’ heart continues to blossom he finds that he has a profound capacity to help others heal, awaken to their hearts and become more intimate with their true nature.
Charles has been living in India for the past thirteen years so he is the perfect host to make sure your holiday is safe, fun and meaningful. Goa is what he calls a “soft landing” in India, yet it still has some of its craziness. India is colorful, and doesn’t work in the same manner as the west. So it’s the perfect holiday if you want something different.
Cora Kemball-Cook – British Wheel of Yoga teacher
Cora has been teaching yoga for 20 years and practicing yoga since the mid-seventies so has accumulated a wealth of experience in different types of yoga from many teachers. These teachers range from the traditional Iyengar style of teaching to the gentler style of Desikachar which builds up gently to the main posture and she combines aspects of these teachings with the awareness that Vanda Scaravelli brought to the yoga of gravity and the breath. She qualified with the British Wheel of Yoga train yoga teachers in 2005 to and uses the newly built yoga studio in Harbledown as a base for teacher training. For details of this go to www.canterburyyoga.co.uk
She has been practicing Transcendental meditation for many years and studying yoga philosophy so every class includes strands of philosophy and some pranayama, meditation, and relaxation.
She is delighted to have this opportunity to be teaching on a retreat where daily practice gives students an opportunity to make real progress in their yoga .
