Sonja Appel invites you for a 7-day yoga immersion in the Heart of Parra, Goa in the middle of the monsoon to rejuvenate mind, body and soul.
Enjoy the truly magical, extraordinary season of the monsoon doing a 7 Day Yoga Immersion in the Heart of Parra, Goa at the beautiful Boutique Hotel Tara Verde!
This is the time of the year to enjoy nature at its best - the lushness of the greenery, sprawling paddy fields and the light shimmering off growing plants, the fertility of mother earth, the flow of water and the fury of the sea!
Experience Goa in it's calm and relaxed state, empty of crowds of tourists and get to know the lovely local people. 
Monsoon is the perfect season to come on a retreat and enjoy Yoga, Meditation and Ayurveda.
This course includes:
a) Group yoga (beginners are welcome).
b) Spacious,  comfortable accommodation.
c) Delicious breakfast and dinner (vegetarian, organic and locally grown ingredients). 
d) Time to relax on your own or with a partner, discover the beautiful surroundings and experience the benefits of the monsoon season.
If you are familiar with Ayurveda then you know that this season is the best time for treatments. An ayurvedic doctor and therapist can be organized upon special request to meet your ayurvedic needs. 
Sonja will guide you through the 8 limbs of Yoga and you will discover that yoga is  so much more than just physical activity.
So come and join us for this rewarding Retreat!
