Anand Garg

Sivananda Ashram in Kerala, India (Vipassana Yoga)

Anand is an ex-banker who said goodbye to his office job in 2012 to start his journey back to his inner self through yoga, meditation, and other spiritual practices. Anand trained and graduated from Sivananda Ashram in Kerala in 2012 and finished his master of yoga in 2016. He lives by the motto love the life you live and live the life you love.

Amanda Larson-Mekler

Amanda accidentally stumbled upon a beach yoga class in Hawaii ten years ago and has been hooked ever since. Yoga for her started as simply a way to work out, but has since become a way to practice mindfulness both on and off the mat. Her teaching has also evolved since she was first certified in 2009. She now teaches vinyasa, hatha, and restorative yoga and often brings meditation and chanting into the practice. Amanda's favorite part of teaching is working with new yoga teachers to deepen their own practice and help them find an authentic voice.

Kathrin

Kathrin grew up in the beautiful Austrian countryside, which laid the foundation for her strong connection to mother nature. Having experimented with different nutritional systems for more than 10 years, she came in touch with Ayurveda during her first trip to India in 2007. This very individualized approach of Ayurveda deeply resonated with Kathrin and she decided to return to India to study the art of Ayurveda right where it’s coming from. For the past 7 years Kathrin has been living mostly in India and Nepal where she has deepened her knowledge in Ayurveda, Yoga, Meditation & Energy work.

Zooni

Zooni wears many hats and is a curious spirit. She has always been involved in cooking, hosting guests and sharing food and conversation were an essential part of the family life. She became serious about yoga some six years ago, something to remind her of her child gym and dance steps and was hooked right away. She walked in to Sivananda Ashram in 2014 without expectation and with an open heart and became a yoga teacher. She followed her own try self and kept travelling teaching yoga. She is now sharing the light with other and combining both her hospitality and spiritual skills.

Sylvie

Driven by positive change in her life & love for yogic life style she decided to fully embrace it, by dedicating all her energy into it. She loves to support and help others with yoga and yoga therapy to find balance, be healthy and get empowered to follow their heart. Sylvie is grateful to be able to share positive vibes, as well as spiritual experience on and off the mat. Mesmerized by the beauty and diversity in India, she is excited to meet people from around the world & unfold hidden gems in them Sylvie's motto is 'leave the footprint of kindness where u go!'

    I was mostly impressed with the quality of the staff. From the teachers to the general food and maintenance staff. Everyone was eager to make sure we were comfortable and happy. I highly recommend this yoga camp.

    Great instructors, amazing location between the beach and jungle, delicious food, judgement free yoga practice with no expectations. You will practice breathing, meditation, and at least 4 types of yoga while you're here and every instructor is extremely qualified and passionate about helping you get the most from your yoga practice.

    Afternoon yoga becomes overrun by mosquitos at the end. Be prepared with heavy duty bug spray.

  • Edwin Netherlands

    Very beautiful and peaceful place, two great teachers, Amanda and Julia.

    Unfortunately the owner, yogi, is not so nice to his staff and beating dogs.

    My time with the group and teachers was however very special!

    So a 10 for the teachers and place, a 5 for the owner.. so, a 7,5 average score..

    Dear Edwin,

    <br>

    We are very glad and happy to know that you had great time at Earth Yoga Village. We all try our best to keep on improving overall experience for our visiting guests and to make them part of the community.

    <br>

    However, we would, also, like to say that your analysis about dog and staff may not be right, as we are all super happy and satisfied working here, like a family, and the dog is our visiting dog for many years, we all love it, but time to time, we all need to be strict with it, to put it into right behavior pattern.

    We are very conscious of our actions, nevertheless we thank you for your kind review.

    Best regards,

    Thank you so much for the last week, it has been unforgettable. I really would be happy to rate this 10 as the yoga was so good every class and pushed us to our limits and the food was so healthy and tasty! We loved all of the instructors and Anand who ran the show everyone was so helpful and went above and beyond making us feel welcome. We will be coming back over Christmas to say hello and do a drop in class or two and we are all looking forward to continuing practicing yoga. Thank you!

Bravo à toute l’équipe, restez comme vous êtes. Un grand merci pour tout !

    Really loved it here. At first I just came for yoga classes whilst staying elsewhere on the beach, then we came here for a few nights. Really amazing yoga and meditation, nice accommodation (simple, but charming), good healthy food, and run and staffed by genuinely lovely people.

    After spending one week partying in Arambol and a couple days lounging in Palolem I decided to try EYV as a friend I had met on the bus down to palolem had recommended it. I am very keen about yoga and was looking for a nice beach retreat so after doing only online research I found EYV to be the more affordable option. I came with no reservation and was given a hut the next day. The location was spectacular, very secluded away from all the action of Palolem, had to walk across the beach and over a wooded bridge across the river, although remote, you never need to leave, they supply endless amounts of drinking water, the food is cooked there for you and it's a great place to hang out. The staff was awesome, 3 great, passionate, incredibly friendly and resourceful instructors who felt more like friends at the end of the retreat. The food was the best I've eaten in 2 months in idea, fresh fruit and healthy vegetarian meals leave your body feeling amazing. The huts although simple had everything you need, beds, sheets, towels, soap, toilet paper, fans and electricity for charging devices, open air bathroom with hot showers. Great community living space. If your into getting a excellent massage they can be booked and delivered in the yoga shala and they are great. If your in it for just the yoga, or meditation you can drop into any classes and they are reasonably priced. The yoga was excellent offering Vinyasa, hatha and yin along with pranyama and buddhist styles of meditation and a excellent afternoon group discussion session after breakfast.

    Truly the most stunning place, hidden off the end of Palolem Beach. The owner, Anand, has decorated the whole place so nicely making it a little paradise and completely different than anywhere else nearby. The yoga and meditation teachers are phenomenal and it is suitable for all levels from beginner and on. The food is delicious and the rooms are clean and well equipped with all essentials. I went by myself for a week and made some lovely friends who I am still in touch with. Really fun, peaceful, and helpful to my yoga and meditation practice!

  • Sally-Anne United Kingdom

    I had a wonderful time staying in the Village for six nights - the yoga, food and surroundings were fantastic, and the atmosphere laid back and happy. The village itself is in the beautiful jungle, just away from the main beach at Palolem, and it is lovely. The yoga and meditation teachers were all brilliant, including Anand who runs the place- I really enjoyed his Hatha and pranayama / meditation classes. You can also drop in to classes if you are staying elsewhere.

    If you practice yoga and want a great experience of it in India then I would highly recommend Earth Yoga Village.

    Just pure Bliss!!! This place is so peaceful, you will not want to leave it anymore. The owner makes you feel at home and keeps you smiling every day! I really enjoyed my stay. Totally recommended!

  • Cheyl Louise

    Of 7 months travelling so far, I know that my week at EYV will stand out as one of the very best.

    It is a place where travel expectation lives and breathes, with beautiful jungle and beach surroundings, a tranquil lifestyle and genuine relaxation. A place where the grass really IS greener.

    As a rare affordable yoga experience, it is perfect for backpackers to take some time out and try something different. Yoga and meditation for all experience levels.

    As with all unforgettable times it was the people who made it. Instructors Selina, Kacy and Saskia are absolute babes and Anand who runs it is always around to help you out with anything you need. As spiritual guides they all excel if you are open to what they can teach you. I don't consider myself Buddhist but certainly learnt some practical ways to ease stress and deal with life's challenges. I felt truly looked after. Don't miss out on a massage either, I had a therapeutic massage with Mickey that wasn't like most of the very structured 'on the clock' ones you will get elsewhere, but be warned he books up fast.

    I would passionately recommend this place to anyone who is friendly, open minded and doesn't mind/is up for trying a bit of yoga.

    Me and my boyfriend enjoyed our time we spent in Earth yoga village very much. The yoga classes were excellent let by very experienced and knowledgeable teachers. We did an intro to Ayurveda course which was very informative and really fun. The leader of the course was as well amazing and with a lot of experience and knowledge. The environment could not be better, really quiet with nice and airy huts. I would definitely recommend Earth Yoga Village and would love to visit the place again. Thank you all for the great time we had.

  • Trygve S.

    Me and three of my friends dropped in for a morning session with yoga teacher Anand. It is the first time I have ever tried yoga. Even though the group were at different level Anand made sure that we should push our body within our physical limits. I am very stiff and struggled in the beginning with the positions but Anand was a great teacher and helped me through the session so I managed to get most of it by the end of the class. Me and my friends all agreed we had a good time and felt comfortable throughout the class even though two of us were beginners. I hear they have a lot of longer courses as well, unfortunately we did not have the time to try it out. But when in Goa you have to try yoga and I recommend this place!
