Dr. Venky Shivshakti

Dr. Venky is an internationally acclaimed Indian yoga master. His teachings take a scientific approach to the understanding of yogic practices. Students are made aware of the scientific explanations for practices like kriyas, bandha, asana, pranayama, and meditation, and are thus better equipped to teach these practices in the secular setting of modern yoga centers and gyms. His scientific approach to yogic practices explains the benefits (which were once taught only through religious terms) in the context of yogic science.

"An oasis of calm"

Great small group size. Great energy. Great teacher (Katia), amazing food, awesome massage (Evelyn), peace and tranquility. Lovely beaches. Great to have a dog rescue centre nearby to go and help walk the dogs.

I was delighted to have the opportunity to be taught by Dr. Venky at Casa Prana in Vale da Telha, Portugal. With an ongoing spine problem myself, I knew I needed someone who specialised in the anatomical side of yoga. Someone with the skill and knowledge to teach me how to handle students with similar problems as mine.

I didn't just want to learn how to practise yoga postures, I wanted to develop an in-depth knowledge of how yoga can improve people's lives.

During our 30 day TTC, Dr. Venky was such a pleasure to be around. Although serious when he needed to be, his sense of humour and depth of character was certainly an added bonus. I really feel like I learned a massive amount (I'm still digesting it all!) and don't know anyone else who could have taught the way he did.

I received a very warm welcome into Casa Prana on my arrival and felt like I was home away from home the whole month during the course. Not only is it located in the perfect spot for utter peace, it's also not far from some of the most beautiful beaches in Portugal. I would definitely recommend it!

I Had an amazing time! Eveline is a great teacher and cook! I went on a retreat that didn't include surfing lessons but ended up paying for my own with another girl on retreat. It was lot of fun and I felt like I had loads of free time to read and enjoy the surroundings. Eveline was always trying to help us understand our own bodies and grow! I highly recommend renting a car or being sure to buddy up with someone else who is. Overall an amazing retreat and that I will definitely do again soon!
