Goa Wellness Fest 2018
Goa Wellness Festival is a 5-day resident event (or 3-day non-resident) with a direct focus on bringing a positive change in your health & lifestyle.
This means that you do not live & eat like any other day. The goal is to show how small changes in your daily life can bring substantial changes in lifestyle disorders, relieve you of detrimental habits and spread a spirit of well-being around you.
The pre-defined set of activities include:
Ayurvedic body type evaluation
Vata Pitta Kapha based diet
Yoga meditative practice
Cultural immersion & enrichment programs
The Goa Wellness Festival 2018 provides a confluence of wellness & therapy experts in a 5-day package, allowing you to connect with your self, initiate a wellness regime and learn the use of super foods and herbal remedies.
At the Wellness Fest, they initiate the rejuvenation process with a Vatta-Pitta-Kapa evaluation of your body-type and a wellness assessment of your current health. This allows them to determine the food patterns and the amount of physical & mental activity that needs to be prescribed.
Deepa has always been a fan of fitness since being introduced to the outdoors life during her stay in the US between 1993 and 2007. After moving back to India, she pursued this passion by becoming a certified fitness instructor from one of India’s top fitness academy. While working with a fitness chain, she was introduced to Iyengar Yoga and several other styles of yoga in 2008. After learning and practicing for over 2 years, she began teaching in 2010 with a qualification in Hatha Yoga. Her classes focus on strengthening, stretching, breathing, relaxing and gradually developing flexibility. In 2014, continuing her personal growth, she completed the gruelling requirements to obtain a Yoga Alliance (USA) certification.
Ashwini has been a yoga practitioner for 17 years now at the Iyengar Institue. She has been a teacher with Param Yoga since 2010. She conducts pilates and power yoga workshops for KPIT, AXA, Symbiosis, and Vertex. Ashwini has always been a student of yoga. Though she holds a diploma (Institute of Hotel Management, Dadar, Mumbai) and a degree (Hotel Management from Florida International University, Miami, USA) in hotel management, and has years of work experience in the field, she decided to quit the hectic pace of life. Ashwini chose to develop her interest in yoga further to find inner peace. In her words, “teaching yoga gives me immense pleasure satisfaction and an indescribable high!”

The event is timed for January and the Goa weather is likely to be chilly and breezy. To be safe, a light jacket or some pullovers should be just fine. For the yoga meets in the open or indoors, be equipped with full yoga outfits. This would be yoga pants and yoga tops. Choose to carry a pair of comfortable footwear such as crocs or slippers. Along with that, it's a fine idea to carry some optional footwear as well.
The Goa Wellness Festival would involve some therapy sessions based on naturopathy. These are intended to heal chronic and lifestyle disorders. So do carry some pairs of used lowers with you, the kind you wouldn’t mind if they get soiled.
