Meet The Facilitators

 
Venue   SWAN Yoga Retreat

Assagao is a peaceful and quiet village located in the heart of Bardez, Goa. It is home to SWAN Yoga Retreat, which is one of the most famous and well-known yoga retreat centers in Goa, as it offers refreshing yoga classes and relaxing massages.

From the moment you arrive and enter SWAN Yoga's Yogic Village, you will be transformed by the vibrancy of not only the lush plant life, all of which is indigenous to Indian jungles, but also the vibration of Yogic Sadhana and Yogic Rituals performed weekly. SWAN provides their retreat residents with the purity of nature and facilitates purification of the self through the purest of diets and balancing Yoga practices scheduled daily throughout the day in one of the two beautiful outdoor Yoga shalas. Both are spacious, open air facilities wrapped tightly in mosquito netting creating the perfect outdoor environment to commune with nature during your spiritual practices.

The eco-friendly, village-like accommodations is an oasis designed to help transform the weary urban dweller into a revitalized force of nature. It’s simple, but modern with the necessary conveniences that modern cultures enjoy in their daily lives, like free WiFi available throughout the campus – but not to the point to where the human mind becomes separated from Mother Nature.

The village is located about 4 km west of Mapusa. Assagao can be reached quite conveniently through a bus or a cab, although SWAN Yoga Retreat offers airport pick-up service for a minimal fee and it takes approximately 46 minutes from the Goa (GOI) Airport.
