We are so excited to announce that Eoin Finn and Insiya Rasiwala-Finn will be leading their first ever retreat to India in January 2018!

Join globally renowned yogis Eoin and Insiya as they travel to Insiya’s homeland of India for an ocean-side retreat in laid-back, beachy and beautiful Goa, a destination known for its long stretches of uninterrupted beaches, energetic markets filled with the bustle of India, delicious cuisine and diverse culture, as well as the perfect place to dive deep into your yoga practice in the arms of mystical Mother India.

What to expect on this special retreat:

Luxurious accommodation: Stay on the shores of serene Morjim beach in luxurious rooms designed to evoke the energy of the chakras and watch the sun set over the warm waters of the Arabian Sea.

Deep and Bliss Filled Yoga: Dive deep into our yoga practice on the soil that birthed it, with intuitive and customized practices designed by Eoin and Insiya to help release blockages and open up to our most joyful and vibrant self.

Ayurvedic Insights on Lifestyle, Nutrition and Self Care: Receive guidance from Insiya, an Ayurvedic Counsellor, on how to find more balance, health and healing in your life through the practical wisdom of Ayurveda and gain tangible skills to apply these insights to your life beyond the retreat.

Delicious Nourishment: Enjoy organic meals that offer the vibrant tastes of the subcontinent and the world and rest under the shade of a breezy palm tree.

Insights into mystical and modern India from Insiya’s unique, personal perspective as a yogini who grew up here.

Radiance: We are so so excited to share our India with our students and friends. This is going to be a transformative, radiant week–one in which you will feel fully alive. We cannot wait to see you there!

More about Goa:

Goa, India’s famous west coast paradise, is less than an hour flight from the country’s financial capital of Mumbai, yet worlds away in both sensibility and pace. Life is slower here, the air clean and it is possible to find pockets of peace-a cherished commodity in one of the world’s most populated countries.

While the origins of the name Goa are disputed, some say it derives from Gautama–the name of the Buddha, who is said to have spent time here; others point out that the region has its first literary mention in India’s famous epic the Mahabharata as Gomantaka and Govapuri. Whatever Goa’s origins, historians do concur that the “Go” in Goa translates as “cow” alluding to the pastoral beauty of the region, which fortunately still remains both by the coast as well as in the vast and luxuriant hinterland.

With over 100 kilometres of sandy beaches and an interior dotted with fields, old Portuguese churches in varying states of repair, ancient Hindu temples, mangroves, busy towns, the cobblestoned historic quarter of Old Goa–a UNESCO heritage site, palatial colonial homes and vibrant markets, not to mention some of the world’s oldest fusion cooking, there is something here for every traveller. A recent spate of high-end luxury hotels, small boutique properties, yoga and wellness centres have edged Goa’s evolution from its hippie party roots of the 60s and are transforming it into a coveted spa and wellness destination.
