Nourish your soul in the jungle of Goa. In India, at the roots of yoga we connect to ourselves and raise consciousness for both us and our surroundings. Wake up every morning between rice fields and coconut trees.

For body, mind and soul, Palma Sole offers every day sunrise meditation, as well as morning & evening yoga classes in the beautiful yoga shala.

Beginners and advanced – all levels are welcome. In between you have enough time for yourself: Relax at the pool, enjoy the exotic nature, or indulge yourself with an ayurvedic treatment at the Samata Holistic Clinic. We will also experience an Indian night market and hold a holistic ritual.

We are happy to host the retreat at Samata Holistic Retreat Center (www.samatagoa.com). Located in the jungle of Goa near the colorful hippie beach, Arambol, Samata offers beautiful rooms, suites, yoga shala’s and a teardrop pool. Samata means balance or equilibrium in Sanskrit, and speaks to how we must attempt to restore balance in every facet of our lives.

An important part of this balance comes from our diet. “ What you eat is what you are.” – Amrit Holistic Kitchen will indulge us with healthy vegetarian food from Samata’s own self-sustainable organic garden. Vegan and gluten-free meals are available upon request.

3. Yoga Teacher & Host

Palma Sole, Yoga Teacher

Yoga has been a part of Palma Sole’s life intensively for 10 years. Since her first apprentice-ship with Baron Baptiste in the USA, Palma has constantly been developing her practice and attending trainings all around. Since 2015 she has had her own studio, Sole Yoga in Zurich.

Her teaching focus is on power vinyasa yoga for beginners and advanced students. This method combines intensive, flowing physical movement with an important focus on the mental aspect of yoga practice. This allows students to fulfill their need for “compensation”, offsetting a mental difficulty in another area of their life, acts as an antistress treatment, and allows every student to find their own balance. Palma places special emphasis on encouraging you individually during the lessons, so that you can take the best out of any asana practice and continue practicing independently.
