Yoga became a life-understating tool for Shivendra. The leaning about life and sharing the experience with like minded people is still on for him for the past 12 years. He is also doing multi-tasking and taking care of communication and administration besides delivering lectures and conducting work-shops as and when time permits.
Gyanmitra has a Bachelor’s degree in Yogic Sciences, and has been involved in learning and teaching yoga for the past fifteen years, conducting programmes and workshops in Europe and the Middle East
Dayamurti is the guiding force behind the asana and pranayama part of classical Hatha yoga being taught at SWAN. She is a disciple of Swami Niranajanananda Saraswati of Bihar School of Yoga. She is very dedicated towards her teaching and her simplicity and spiritual living is quite enriching for the guest staying at Swan.
At SWAN Yoga Retreat Goa, Omtirth is responsible for the Tantric and Vedic rituals conducted here on a regular basis besides teaching and conducting the special yoga retreats organised from time to time. His simple yet very passionate way of talking is loved by one and all. A lot can be said about him, but to make it short: he is OM.
Dimple firmly believes that the body is the best teacher and always let the breath lead the movement. Dimple found yoga at a difficult time of her life and willingly or not has been having a torrid love affair with it since. “Amateur face off with Yoga” is her motto which she experienced herself a decade back.
Thank you for giving me the tools and experiences to finally being able to realize what unconditional love is all about. Through guided meditation, yoga and lovely food you gave me a sense of peace and stillness that I never felt before. Today, a few months after my stay, I still keep the love in my heart and I'm no longer afraid of sharing it with others.

This was my first time at a yoga retreat so I don't have a point of comparison but Swan Yoga was truly wonderful. In a middle of a beautiful jungle garden-like, the place is really an oasis of calm and peace. As a beginner in yoga, I was very worried about the Asana classes but the teachers were available and very helpful. Beyond this, the retreat offers an insight in less-known yoga practices in the west and yoga philosophy, all very interesting. The food was amazing and the accommodation cottage lovely. I was lucky enough to visit at the end of the season so we were only a handful of guests and the staff was amazing, available and very helpful. This was everything I expected from yoga retreat and more and I will sure go back. I didn't want to leave and I came back home relaxed and rejuvenated. Highly recommended!
