Guest Yoga Retreats in Goa

Yoga Retreats at our beautiful centre in Goa

Each year we hold a number of guest retreats at our Training and Retreat Centre in Goa. These retreats are a great opportunity for you to immerse yourself in Yoga while visiting India, but still allowing you plenty of time to relax at the beach or explore Goa. 

Check out our upcoming guest retreats below.

Mark Robberds and Deepika Mehta

Goa Immersion with Mark Robberds

2019 Dates TBC

Join Mark for a three week Mysore-style practice intensive at our Training and Retreat Centre in Goa.

Mark’s Goa immersion integrates a movement approach to modern yoga practice. In this immersion the focus of the morning classes are self-practice Mysore style – which Mark and Deepika teach in a non-dogmatic way – with every person taught to their individual needs. 

The evening workshops teach fundamentals, functional movement, mobility, different stretching techniques such as active, active assisted, progressively loaded, end range control and passive. They will explore locomotion and gymnastics movement principles as well as partner work and games. 

The immersion will also include pranayama and meditation practices as well as talks on philosophy and the purpose of practice and the Yoga tradition.

Important Considerations

Self Practice

As this is a Mysore-style intensive it is very important that you already have an established self practice. Any applicants for this training must contact Mark directly to outline their practice history and teachers before they can be accepted onto the training.


Accommodation for this intensive is not included in the price. Rooms are available on location at our retreat centre and can be booked directly with Himalaya Yoga Valley.
