"What a fantastic week - beautiful surroundings, healthy and tasty food, and a lovely group of people.  Jeff has such a wealth of knowledge but wears it lightly, creating classes with a perfect mix of humour and depth. The daily yoga and meditation felt deeply nourishing, with enough challenge to work our personal ‘edge’ but space to really develop a sense of inner peace. I arrived on the retreat feeling quite ‘stuck’, and left feeling rested, invigorated, with a renewed sense of purpose. Would highly recommend!" Hannah, Ashiyana 2020


 "I finally got around to doing Jeff's yoga retreat  in Goa at Ashiyana 10 years after my teacher training. It was worth the wait!  Jeff’s teaching and classes were  so inspiring and I met some wonderful people.  I have returned home full of energy and ready for anything! "  Serena, 2020  

The Venue 

Set amidst abundant tropical flora and fauna, behind the beautiful and unspoiled Mandrem Beach in North Goa,  Ashiyana Retreat has been designed as a deeply nurturing space where you can relax your body, calm your mind and awaken to your inner sense of being. This truely is one of the best yoga retreats in Goa. 
Meaning 'home' in Hindi, Ashiyana provides the perfect back drop to your yoga practice.  
This wonderfully tranquil environment will help you to feel as comfortable, connected and relaxed as possible, provide  a sanctuary where you can disconnect from technology and allow to reconnect with your inner self. There is something really special about practicing yoga in Goa!

The Yoga

This retreat will be lead by experienced yoga teacher Jeff Phenix. The long morning practice will be a dynamic, creative, playful and explorative ‘deep slow flow’ asana practice and will include meditation and pranayama.  By emphasizing the breath, mindfulness & skillful action and building up through a range of appropriate options – students, from the less experienced to the more advanced, will discover how to work peacefully at the level appropriate to them.
The afternoon session will be a mellower, soothing and nurturing practice, delving into areas such as yin yoga, restoratives, pranayama, chakras, yoga nidra and meditation.  This will totally bliss you out!
We finish in time to watch the sun go down and maybe even indulge a sunset swim!

Jeff has lots of experience teaching students of all levels. His depth of understanding, playful approach, ability to challenge students to safely explore their edge and his love of pranayama and meditation will give you the perfect opportunity to deepen your practice both physically and internally and he has been teaching yoga in Goa at Ashiyana since 2013.

What my students say

 “This was the best yoga retreat in Goa or anywhere else that I have ever been on.  Everything about the yoga holiday was perfect, just stunning… the venue (Ashiyana), the teaching, people and food  -  an excellent and amazing experience with a warm and generous teacher.  It couldn’t have been better!” 


"As a teacher myself I’m proud to call Jeff one of my teachers. He is so skilled and embodied in offering a complete and expansive practice, whatever your level. Whether it’s his wonderful weekly classes or his immersive and blissful yoga retreats in Goa you are guaranteed a thorough and uplifting Yoga experience. Thanks Jeff!"


"Jeff's yoga retreats in Goa are spectacularly good! Such amazing value for the very best yoga, venues, food and people. We just got back from Jeff's retreat and have had the most restorative and fun time. Jeff is a superb teacher, for all levels. He makes everyone feel comfortable and confident to be themselves, to try, to explore and to ultimately find some peace and clarity. If you can, do go!
