The ideal place to learn and practice yoga and meditation either joining a course or a retreat. The location on the beach allows to enjoy the seaside and the surroundings without compromising on the holiday time.The whole team of teachers is professional and highly knowledgeable. Delicious vegetarian meals are served every day with love and a big smile. An authentic warm and welcoming atmosphere which makes you feel at home.
best yoga school in goa. if you want right knowladge about yoga. highly recommended
I did a long and intense research to find a Yogaschool in India for a 200hr YTT. I was looking for an authentic school at a nice place with a focus on practice. There are plenty of schools in India who offer more or less the same so it’s hard to make a decision. Because of the very good reviews for Upaya I‘ve decided to book my YTT there. And I am more than happy about this decision. The people who work there are just great- all the staff are Indian with an extraordinary beautiful energy. The program is very practice-focused and feels like the perfect mix to get an overview of all basic elements. The rooms are basic but clean and cosy. The Yoga Shalas are amazing especially the one on the roof with a breathtaking view to the ocean and river. And last but not least the food - it’s just so good that I am really miss it being back home. The kitchen staff is just great and always cook delicious food. Overall it was just THE perfect place for me and it could not have been better. Thank you very much, Upaya Team! This was one of the best experiences I ‚ve ever made🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 keep on teaching and smiling ❤️ I can highly recommend Upaya.
I completed my 200 hours teacher training in November 2018. I loved my time in Upaya, I wished I never left, this place is magic, I feel so grateful to have been able to learned so much here. It’s been tough, busy, challenging and quite intense, the most wonderful experience changes my whole view, my understanding of yoga, philosophy and lifestyle. I am so happy excited and proud for this special time in my life. Krishna, Prem, Aayush and Chetan are amazing teacher. The teachers gave us so much energy and love to each and every one of us, there every step of the physically, emotionally and mentally challenging journey. The yoga shala has a beautiful view to the ocean. The location in Goa is the best, the beach is on our doorstep. What I learned here literally changed my life: Krya, Pranayama, Mantra (also dancing and fun), Hatha Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga, Yin Yoga, Acro Yoga, Aerial Yoga, Karma Yoga, Ayurveda, Philosophy and Anatomy. Cleanless and Hygiene is super, they clean the room and we have fresh towels and beds every 4-5 days. I loved the Indian food Nitish is a very good Cook. We ate so well with fresh fruits in morning with Müsli, Jogurt and honey and also beautiful home cooked lunches and dinners with vegetables. The staff is amazing and Prachi (Manager from Upaya Yoga) is so lovely it’s like a family here, I never feel homesick. I can not recommend the Upaya Yoga School higher, a piece of my heart will always be here with beautiful people, and the lessons i shared and learned at Upaya. You learn so much more not only Yoga about Life!!! Everyone from Upaya Yoga was a present for me. Namaste
Enjoyed my experience for October 2018 YTT 200HR: Food was great, location, right on the beach, with a great view from the Yoga Shala. Learned a lot and felt like a family. Our accommodation was good, the airport pick up was smooth. Felt like home for the month and it was intense but amazing. Have an open mind and an open heart.

It's a nice place to learn Yoga !!
I completed my 200h teacher training course in November 2017 at Upaya Yoga and it was one of the most beautiful and fulfilling experiences I have had so far. The location of the school is amazing. Surrounded by the ocean, the river and dschungel it gives you the most beautiful atmosphere for diving into the world of yoga. The teachers at Upaya Rohil and Anil are very skilled and enthusiastic to share their knowledge in every way. I especially liked the way we were introduced to teaching. Starting with teaching three asanas for 10 minutes and in the end we were confident teaching a 90 minute class. The accommodation is also really nice you can choose between eco huts and ac huts/room but all rooms are very nice and comfy. Throughout the course we had three amazingly great vegetarian indien meals. The staff and epecially Mama Prachi the good soul of Upaya will definitly make you feel at home! So if you're looking for a great school and and even greater experience then don't hesitate to come and join Upaya family � Love Feli
I stepped off the plane to be greeted by smiles which lasted for the whole month of my stay. The warmth, genorsity, guidance & sharing of vast knowlege makes you feel like you have been part of this family forever. I have participated in lots of training programmes in the past but THIS is yoga! & teacher training at it's best.
I completed my YTT in Nov 2017 and really had one of the most incredible experiences. Everything about the course was great. Anil, Rohil and Prem were fantastic teachers and all taught in their own style. Mama Prachi ensured that no-one ever felt homesick and was always on hand to dish out a hug when things got hard. The food was varied and delicious. We were eased into teaching step by step so that it was never too daunting when we came to teach a full hour or 90 minute class. I left feeling confident and ready to teach on my own. I learnt lots of new things about myself mentally and physically and will never forget Upaya. The only thing I would say for improvement is that it would have been good to be assessed on the 90 minute class to see if we had acted and improved on the 60 minute class feedback. Other than that I could not recommend Upaya enough. x
