Upaya Yoga in Goa India was a magical experience. It was everything I was looking for my 200 hour Certification in Yoga teacher training. I received a well rounded experience with Pranayama breathing from Pallavi Sharma, Ashtanga with Prem Bahadur Shah, Guidance from Prem Krishna Ananda, Hatha from Chetan, Yin yoga from Alida and the helpful staff making the amazing food, keeping our rooms cleaned every 3 days. The course is not for the faint at heart. The classes are in open air classrooms with the ocean breeze and waves with true Indian teachers that push you to your edge of opening, stretching and holding asanas. The Hatha and the Ashtanga classes were challenging and held me accountable to going to my edges with an open heart and a smile. The teachers are warm, friendly and truly care about every student making sure they feel welcome. All the students were encouraged to connect whether you were 200 or 300 hr made lifetime friendships. The food is fresh healthy Indian daily with some variety. I enjoyed my time at Upaya and every free moment was spent on the beach swimming in the waves. I would highly recommend Upaya Yoga in Goa for your yoga teacher training.

If you are looking for an authentic, beautiful, and peaceful place to deepen your yoga practice, Upaya is the place for you. I completed my 200 HR YTT at Upaya, and it was a life changing experience. The staff, teachers, and special guests are masters who pour their heart and soul into their work so you know you are learning from the best. Each day at Upaya will challenge you mentally and physically all while having the time of your life. Their 200 HR course is structured to provide you with a breath of knowledge and focuses on helping you cultivate the yoga lifestyle that is best for you. The accommodations, location, staff, facilities, course materials, food, and atmosphere are absolutely incredible. Upaya positively impacted my life more than I ever expected. I'm proud to say that I attended Upaya Yoga Center in Goa.

Upaya Yoga was truly the best time ever. I learned so much in such a short period of time. The campus was beautiful, right by the beach, very calm and peaceful. The teacher were great, the level of the classes was appropriate for anybody. I truly love every single moment of it!

I spent 10 days at Upaya Yoga for a yoga retreat and it was an amazing experience! The location, in a very quiet area but only a few steps from the beach, makes it the perfect place to fully enjoy peacefulness, appreciate nature and experience the yoga practice in a way that is very different from the yoga studios in the big, loud and busy western cities! Attending philosophy classes in the Yoga Shala on the terrace on the ocean, sleeping with the sound of the waves and experiencing many different types of yoga and meditation, each one so unique, make you lose track of time and wish you could stay there forever! Teachers are very knowledgeable and experienced and always willing to share their knowledge with love and a smile. Food is very nice, healthy and super fresh. Everyone there is nice and always willing to help, there is a sense of community and it feels like a family. There is a magical atmosphere there, a mix of peacefulness, kindness and happiness. I am so grateful for this experience and I definitely recommend it as it's the perfect place to make long-lasting memories.

I did my 200h TTC at Upaya School. Wonderful location right on the beach but in a quite part, not disturbed from the crowd. Beautiful Yoga Shala with ocean view. The whole team of teachers is professional and highly knowledgeable. Both teachers and workers, are lovely and friendly and it felt really like home. Food is delicious and various. Highly recommended.
