10 day’s Yoga Psychology Program
The program is carefully designed by Yogalife team to make sure you are a new person after the whole process. The program is based on Yoga Psychology and delivered under the expert guidance of Patrick, Manoj and Els. The program has a very easy approach unlike a certificate course. The real active duration of the program is 60/70 hours in total.
What we want you to give you /show you?
We work on all five sheaths of human existence (called the koshas). We will work with body, energy, emotions, mind and consciousness. We will use an integral approach of life through yoga.
How an Upward Spiral days look like?
We start at 7 am with a 90 minute session of Asanas, Pranayamas and Pratyahara. We have a small break with tea and fruit. We continue till 10 am (it can become 10.30) with exercises in self-exploration combined with lectures about life energy, emotions, consciousness and the human mind.
After that you are free to have an extended breakfast or early lunch. The weather will be fine, always a blue sky and around 25 degrees. From the Yogashala you can walk onto the beach for a long walk of hours in both directions on a very broad uninterrupted beach surrounded with palms and old trees. You can swim, relax, sunbath, socialize or talk with the teachers……
We start again at 15.30 with the art of yoga nidra, the art of relaxation combined with Sankalpa work (sowing the seed of intention in your life). We will do exercises in self-expression and share insights. We end with a 90 minute session of Yoga, Pranayama, meditation and we will do sun salutations by sunset until it starts to becomes dark at 18.30 pm.
After that you can shower, have dinner, socialize and explore the places and shop around Mandrem. Arambol, go to the night market on Saturday… or just enjoy the peace of your hut at Casa D’Calma… And all this for 10 days. You will feel how your energy will change and how you will feel new possibilities… This is our promise.

Swaying palms, white sands and sparkling waters: the three essential elements that attract 2 million visitors annually to Goa’s balmy shores are plentiful in this tiny, glorious slice of India hugging the country’s western coastline and bounded by the Arabian Sea.
A solitary Portuguese outpost in India for almost 500 years, the influence of colonial rule can still be seen everywhere: in the exquisite, crumbling architecture; in the East-meets-West cuisine which combines coconut milk, palm vinegar and chillies with the refined flavours of Lisbon; in the melancholy strains of fado that still waft occasionally on the bougainvillea-scented breeze; and in the siesta-saturated joie de vivre that Goans themselves call susegad.
Nowhere else in India will you find the laid-back languidness of a Goan lunchtime, the easy charms of its people or the soothing serenity of a day on its beaches. Here in Goa, a herd of water buffalo will greet you at breakfast; a lily-covered lake might provide the scenery for your morning walk; a sea eagle will be your afternoon companion along a deserted stretch of pristine beach; a gorgeously spice-laden vindalho (vindaloo) might make your evening repast and a fiery glass of cashew-palm feni liquor your bedtime tonic.
But there's far more to discover here than the exquisite pleasure of warm sand between your toes. Pep up your stay with a wander around a vanilla-scented spice plantation, stroll the bird-filled banks of the state's gentle rivers, poke around centuries-old cathedrals, and venture out to white-water waterfalls. All is not perfect in paradise, however, and Goa has problems aplenty – the state's environment, in particular, is sorely taxed. Nevertheless, with a slowly growing group of environmentalists and ecofriendly individuals on the scene, the picture remains relatively rosy for this most magical of miniature states. So, come, minimise your impact as much as possible, and unwind to the swaying palms and Portuguese rhythms of Goa's still-irresistible charms.
