Located about 90 minutes from Goa, in western India, Ashiyana is characterized more as a personal growth center than simply a yoga hideaway. Special silent retreats, or satsangs, are gatherings that enable guests to look within to examine, under the guidance of a master, the nature of the true self. ("Satsang" is Sanskrit for "association with truth.") Regular clinics are scheduled throughout the year for various types of yoga — Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Motion Yoga, teacher training and more. If you prefer to practice at your own pace, you can also plan a yoga holiday that eliminates the structure of a formal retreat and group involvement.
