A practitioner and teacher of yoga, Geetika’s initiation into the discipline happened at the age of ten through her grandmother. The freedom of expression in art led Geetika to complete her degree in fine arts. After a career in advertising a Waldorf education, Geetika started her yogic study in 2011. She delved into various schools of spirituality and yogic thought in her search for healing. On a quest for deeper spiritual understanding, she met her guru Swami Niranjananada Saraswati in 2011. This experience deepened her awareness, to encompass the yogic process of evolving.
Adriana’s approach to the asana technique is focusing on the architecture of the pose encouraging the student to find the precision of the alignment within the expression of their own body. Also, she embraces the multi-dimensional and evolutionary aspect of yoga, incorporating it in all aspects of her life, from practicing and teaching to her everyday interactions with others. She has had an extensive yoga education with teachers coming from both traditional and experimental approaches: Eileen Gauthier, Rolf Naujokat, Ian Lewis, Duncan Wong and The Yoga People.
Laura attended regular classes and developed her personal practice. However, the desire grew more and more and she wanted to connect with yoga on a spiritual level. Thus, she took her first major step and completed a YTTC at Anusara Teacher Training in the UK. The journey continued as she traveled to India and dived deep to study traditional Hatha yoga. She completed an intensive teacher training course while experiencing ashram life. Her love of yoga has led her on a long journey of teaching over the past nine years.
Susan is an 850 hours multi-style certified yoga instructor from Sydney, Australia. Yoga has become her lifeline such that being on the mat now gives her immense peace and contentment beyond all her other passions. She has tasted the many different approaches to yoga, stayed in ashrams on the Ganga, and shut herself off from the outside world on silent vipassana retreats. While she has a natural affinity for the creativity and mindful movement of Vinyasa and the quiet acceptance of Yin, Susan has finally found her wings with Aerial yoga. Be prepared to fly with her!

"Great journey "
It was hard core training by yet relaxing and fulfilling.
from Great Britain, April 2018
Every one should come here. In simple terms excellent teachers and schedule! Good location.
from United States, April 2018
All the instructors were knowledgable, experienced, approachable, professionble, demonstrated compasion and kindness. Which was needed as I at times questioned my ability. I was Reminded why I practiced yoga and how it benefits people. I was then on a more of a determined personal journey to complete the course.
We also had some really fun times getting to know the instructors and other staff over the course time.
Felt safe in the environment, the staff were kind and accommodating, met some lovely people, made some new memories and enjoyed my time..
We had a really good group and had
Fun times together and encourages each other during the course. We set up a group chat and have remained in contact throughout further travels.
Felt very fortunate to be in Goa completing the 200 hours course.

"Work in progress, but worth the investment"
The spiritual and cultural aspect taught about the practice. You can tell the instructors deeply care about helping the students along.

"No frills, serious Yoga Teaching Training program"
The Instructors, several of whom are not listed on the menu for rating, are excellent. Just for the record, Arushi, Ashok Kumar and Garauv were our teachers as well as Laura, Susie and Adrianna. Viraj (?spelling) in the main office was was unfailingly helpful, patient and never without a smile. Indra and the rest of the kitchen staff worked overtime preparing our delicious vegetarian/ vegan meals. Weekly bed linen change and room cleaning was provided by the lovely Claire and her mother.We are all wishing Claire a speedy and full recovery after her accident. The curriculum is serious, no fluff and the teaching practices are invaluable.It is amazing how quickly ones' group "gels". Having laundry service that was inexpensive and done within the day was great but many people also hand wash their own clothes.Bikes are available but check the tires as they are often low in air.

"Poor management- great teachers mostly"
I liked the most the teachers we had: Ashok, Adriana and Gaurav. If it wasn´t for them, the course would have been poor.
Ashok is very generous with his knowledge and is a great example of Yogic way of life. I am sure, I will see him one day as a known Guru. He is a great inspiration and has a level of consciousness far beyond most people I ever met.
Gaurav taught us about the yoga philosophy. His own passion about the topic and his charming way of teaching made his classes very interesting. He opened true interest in many of us to want to know more and read books like the Bhagvad Gita or the Patanjali Yoga Sutras.
It is a pitty, the management is not able to update the list of the teachers in order to rate them in the review.

"It wasn't great,silly things made it worse"
We had great teachers some of whom are not even mentioned on this site - Ashok, Gaurav, etc., The syllabus of the program is bit dense, but designed with emphasis to prepare students for real life teaching. I also appreciated vicinity of the beach and ability to rent the bikes.
I wish to say that I had more good experiences than the bad ones. Unfortunately, that is not the case.
from Portugal, February 2018
I loved the teachers. The place was lovely. The accommodation was good. Everyone is very friendly

"Excellent value certification"
The location is close enough to the beach to ride a bike or walk (30min), but far enough that it isn't in the craziness of the town. The instructors for the most part are great, and experience in 5 different disciplines of yoga makes us valuable teachers after graduating. Since Kashish took over the facilities from Green Yoga, they have been working and improving the facilities a ton - so much changed even in our short time there. The food was great, and the staff was super nice. Acro-yoga days were very fun! Happy to have my certificate from here!
from Germany, April 2018
My time I at kashish yoga could not have been better. It is a beautiful set-up, wonderful staff and great organisation! Clean facilities and accommodation, attentive and knowledgeable teachers, very well thought through lesson plan/schedule, and great food. Also, very sweet pets. The location is ideal, close enough to the beach and shops, but still feels quite excluded.

"24 amazing days in Goa "
The Yoga school is close to the beach, you can bike there in 10minutes, but still the schools is away from the touristy streets, almost a little hidden in between rice fields and farms. It makes you feel not only safe, but gives you the feeling that you really can concentrate on this training.
The training goes from Monday to Saturday, starts early in the morning with the sunrise and ends with a dinner together in the evening.
The trainers are from different countries and offer different styles as well as teaching approaches, which is interesting to see and learn from.
The food was awesome, the place itself is wonderful. You can relax or study besides the pool, or go to the nearby vegan coffee place and enjoy a raw cake.
The training they offer is for every age and every yoga level, its makes the experience even better that you have so much different people attaining this course.
On sundays you can either join trips the school offers, or just stay on your own, visit the nearby beaches and enjoy indian food.

"The instructors are so good but management no so "
Teachers where THE BEST and very knowledgeable, I learned so much. The perfect balance between fun/relaxing and tough and disciplined. Geeteka and Katrina are both incredible and encouraging. Im so inspired.
from Greece, April 2018
"the most valuable and unforgettable experience "
The uniqueness and depth of teaching is incomparable to anything else I received before.
The teachers are the highest level- both personally and professionally. This is the place if someone wants deeper understanding of yoga phylosophy and spirituality behind. Also the practical teachign experience is as of highest level.
The staff is extremely helpful, fun, polite and the most beautiful souls I've ever met in my life. This place makes you want to go back and just spend time with all the people in this school.
The venue is close to the sea, but remote enough to be able to focus on yoga and enjoy the silence. Namaste and thank you 1000000 times.

"Not good as expected"
I liked the teachers, even tought the lessons were not at all for beginner, but only for the teacher training.
from Switzerland, February 2018
"Bad management, tension on campus and 300 hr level too low"
The staff (kitchen guys, security guards) are nice, you can meet some nice students from around the world. The grounds have potential and the teachers I worked with had good knowledge, however, the bad management and structure unfortunately overshadowed much of this last point.
from India, October 2017
"A Wonderful Retreat!"
My yoga retreat was fabulous. The instructors are all incredibly kind and knowledgable. I was brand new to yoga when I showed up and now I am completely addicted. I highly recommend this retreat (and the food is fantastic too!).

"Good with a few Minus-Points"
The Teachers, Akhilesh and Katerina were amazing. They shared their wisdom with us in a most comprehensive way and in theory and practice. Couldn‘t choose better ones.
The Food was nice, but got kinda boring after the second week as it‘s always the same every week. Good options to eat outside are nearby though.
