Traditional hatha yoga, great experience
Mar 2020
I keep going to Shiva's classes every time i visit south Goa. His classes are traditional hatha yoga in the best sense, that is no fancy or funny talks in between asanas, no cool or pretentious theatre for westerners.. You get wonderful and deep one and half hour class consisting of warm up, assanas, pranayama, meditation. Highly recommended!

Experienced yoga teacher
Jan 2020 • Couples
I spent a fortnight in Palolem and went to Shiva’s 9am yoga class every morning. I can’t recommend Shiva more highly. He is clearly an experienced yoga teacher with a wealth of knowledge and I got masses out of going to his classes. Really friendly and welcoming. Thank you!

getting reaquainted with yoga
Dec 2019
I did some yoga in Rishikesh about 20 years ago and felt the calling again during this 2 weeks holliday in Palolem (I went everyday). All in all it was a very good experience. Shiva Nand Jee (the teacher) was very experienced and calm. He adapted his style to the rough level of the class and helped the new students. Also I learned how to clean my sinuses (neti). Will try to keep up the practice and return. Thanks Swami Ji :)

First headstand unaided!
Dec 2019 • Couples
We stumbled across his tepee style hut in the way to the beach, it was in a quiet setting down a sandy track. The hatha class flowed nicely - firstly starting with chanting, stretches, sun salutation, poses and then meditation/breathing techniques at the end. He was clear with his instructions and didn’t go too fast in the heat which was perfect.
4 days in and I even managed a headstand unaided!
Thank you Swami for being so patient and such a wonderful teacher.

Perfect for all levels!!
Dec 2019 • Couples
I had never done yoga before and am a larger gentleman so felt apprehensive about the whole idea (I originally went to appease the wife). But swami made the experience a pleasure, so much so that I booked an additional 6 sessions (at a discount). Having had a painful back for years i can already feel some of the benefits. I will be continuing with yoga when I get back to England. Would highly recommend!!

Loved my time at Shiva Yoga!
Nov 2019 • Couples
So happy I found the Shiva Yoga Centre! I attended most days on my holiday as I loved it so much, it’s great as the range of times fit in with your day, and I really saw my improvement over that time.
It was a wonderful mixture of yoga, breathing and meditation for all levels and experiences, and I really enjoyed perfecting my headstand with the kind help and assistance of Swami Shivanand.
I would highly recommend attending one of his classes, you will not regret it, and I’m sure you’ll go again and again.

Back to basics
Nov 2019 • Couples
We paid 350irp each for a 1.5 hour Hatha yoga class. My husbands first! I had promised him big things... and was a little disappointed when I first walked into the studio. However, the class and teacher were more genuine and more moving than any of the fancy London studios I’ve attended. Both of us left really blissed out, gentle stretching, breathing techniques and simple meditation- brilliant. My advice, you will get sweaty... bring a change of clothes or wash down in the Neptune bar sink after. Spray mosquito repellent before the 4:30pm class.

Good teacher, very patient with students, good for beginners
Feb 2019 • Couples
We (wife and myself) attended a number of beginner sessions. Swami was a very good teacher, slowly working through the poses and ensuring not to push you beyond your limits.
Swami also introduced me to Neti, basically string through the nose and irrigation.This has helped me immensely with clearer breathing and even reducing my snoring (according to my wife).
Highly recommended.
