“Let Goa” Yoga Retreat

with Iona Dudley-Ward
03 Feb 2024 - 09 Feb 2024 (1 week)

“LET GOA” Yoga Retreat, a retreat centered around letting go of anything that no longer serves your highest good, for the physical body & mental well-being- bringing about the best version of you! My Yoga approach during the retreat will be a mix of Vinyasa release flow, combined with the grounding & strong Ashtanga practice followed by Hatha & Yin yoga to relax unwind, and let go, in afternoon restorative sessions. 

My ethos during your week retreat is that I treat you like a friend & as a teacher & as I stay here all year around- share with you like a local in this beautiful area of northern Goa, so you make the very best of your trip away with me. Besides classes everything is optional, you can be as sociable or peaceful as you wish- I offer an array of trips for those who wish to explore & the @nalandaretreat resort grounds offer the most peaceful of locations, beach or poolside to enjoy solitude, introspection & healing, alongside therapies to help you relax further. It’s your retreat, to enjoy like you are at home.

“Let Goa” Yoga Retreat Teacher

About the Teacher

I've been teaching yoga for a decade, with a diverse international background. I've spent the past five years alternating between Goa,

My teaching style is dynamic, suitable for all levels, and I provide clear, kind instructions with personalized yoga adjustments to help you master your poses. I also love hosting "Pop-up Yoga & Live DJ" events, fusing invigorating music with yoga to create a holistic mind-body experience. Music is a central element of my classes and retreats, reflecting my overall welcoming and feel-good approach to yoga.

In terms of my education, I earned a BA Honours Degree in Dance and Performing Arts from the University of Brighton in my early twenties. This background helped me understand the connection between breath and movement. I first encountered Ashtanga yoga at 'Laban Dance School' in London, which led to my deep appreciation of the combination of dynamic postures and meditative breath. I've been a regular practitioner of Ashtanga, Vinyasa, and Hatha yoga since I was 19, which significantly improved my focus during my career as a comedy actress in my twenties. I eventually turned yoga into a profession, as I realized its transformative power.

My formal training includes a 200-hour "Ashtanga" yoga program with Yogi Kamal at 'Tattva Yoga Shala' in Rishikesh, India, in 2013. Over the years, I've continued to expand my expertise by training with renowned yogis like "Kino Mac Gregor" and "Edward Clarke." As a result, I now teach Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Hatha, and Yin yoga to students worldwide.

In addition to my teaching, I've been hosting international retreats for eight years, starting in Sardinia, Italy, and then regularly in Goa, India, and Cyprus. I've also led Wellness Retreat Days in London city and the English Countryside. I'm excited about my upcoming fourth solo retreat in Goa in February 2024, and I can't wait to share this week of paradise with all participants.
