We Welcome You To Discover Yoga, As It Is…

As part of his 2018 European tour, our founder, and main teacher, Sri Vijay Gopala will be hosting an intensive 5-day retreat with in-depth teachings on authentic Yoga.

Set in the beautiful surroundings of East Sussex, this insightful retreat will provide you with an opportunity to connect with your true nature and explore your inner Self.

During the 5-days the real subject of Yoga will be bought to you from its source – from the background of pure yogic science. Vijay will guide you on a journey of self-reflection and self-expression through an exploration of the true essence of Yoga – combining aspects of body, breath and mind at an individual level and delivered in the most practical way

Whether you are experienced in Yoga or not, this retreat will be a transformative experience for everyone. You will be equipped with new ways to not only better understand your Yoga practice, but to also apply the science of Yoga to the challenging situations of everyday life.

This retreat is designed to be one of four 50 hour Yoga teacher training courses, with 10 hours of intensive teaching on each of the 5 days. Completion of all four blocks and therefore 200 hours of Teacher Training, makes the student eligible for Certification from Yoga Gita (Yoga school of Vijay Gopala). Further 50 hour courses are available in both The Netherlands and Mysore, India.


Vijay Gopala will be the main teacher for the course. Vijay has been teaching Yoga for over 20 years and has an in depth knowledge of the subject coming from the ancient yogic texts. His clarity on every aspect of Yoga and yogic life make him not only a great teacher to study with but also a great individual to interact with.
