MEET YOUR YOGA TEACHER
Yoga found me several years ago and I decided to take my own practice deeper by embarking on a Yoga Alliance Registered Teacher Training where I realised Yoga was a true part of me and was to remain that way going forwards. The Yoga I practiced and the way it made me feel convinced me that I had to continue with my Yoga journey and share with others along the way. Ashtanga, Vinyasa and Dynamic Yoga are the styles of Yoga I love to practice and therefore incorporate into my teaching.
A love for teaching came upon me when I recognised how amazing it was to be able to make others feel good through the practice of Yoga and to teach them what I have learnt and am continually learning. Helping others discover their own Yoga journey is truly rewarding to me. I continue with my journey travelling all around the world, practicing with many teachers and students alike and take in all that I learn to then go on and share my passion with my students and those around me.
I started out teaching regular classes in London and then took my teaching abroad instructing at hotels, resorts and Yoga shalas in amazing locations.
Hosting my own Yoga Holidays came about from both my main passions – Yoga and travelling. Realising I was discovering so many amazing places in the countries I visited and lived in, it became clear that I had to share what I knew, saw and learnt with others hence combining the two by offering these unique NishaYoga Holidays. All my Yoga Holidays come with personal knowledge and experience of the locations they are held at as I have either lived there or visited numerous times and so I am lucky enough to be able to call these beautiful places home and therefore share some of the best things about them with you on a NishaYoga Holiday.
All Yoga classes are open to both beginners and more seasoned Yogis.

The climate in Goa is tropical with the weather through December to March being the best time of the year to visit with slightly cooler mornings and evenings due to the welcoming sea breeze, and dry warm sunny days. Temperatures average 28°C.
Agonda is a village and beach town that still remains quite unspoilt and somewhat undiscovered, away from the big tourist crowds making it a perfect place for a relaxing Yoga Holiday. It has a beautiful 3km stretch of beach on which you can enjoy daily walks and take in the beauty, peace and tranquility. Also a perfect place to learn to surf as well as advance your skills.
SOUTH GOAN BEACHES
Being based in South Goa you are spoilt with numerous and unique beaches. Simply hop in a Tuk Tuk, taxi, or hire a scooter to go and explore the vast beaches of the South. You really can go on for miles.
Agonda has a long main road full of little shops where you can pick up basic everyday essentials as well as clothes, jewellery, spices and souvenirs, with various beachfront and roadside bars and restaurants also within walking distance. The next beach towns of Palolem and Patnem, and main town Chaudi are busier and offer some more options, all easily reachable by Tuk Tuk, taxi or scooter.
The local currency in India is the Indian Rupee (INR). You can exchange currency at your connecting Indian Airport or at Goa Airport upon arrival. There is one ATM in Agonda village, as well as some currency conversion places if you wish to bring your home currency for exchange, all within walking distance, however it is advisable to exchange some currency at the airport or before departing your country before you arrive. You can also head to the main town which has more ATM options if need be.
