Namaste Holiday Home Yoga Farm
My long-time girlfriend and me came to Gokarna in 2006 to take a break from the fast paced western world and to learn more about yoga and meditation. After teaching at Om beach for some years we decided to create and build our own place at the golden sands of Kudle beach with the help of Govinda. Since the first year we live in a tree house, first on a Cashew tree and then on different Banyan trees around the property. A childhood dream came true. Now we received a 4 times Certificate of Excellence from Tripadvisor which shows you that costumers are happy with the way how we manage Namaste Yoga Farm.
With the help of local worker we try to modify our place every year a little bit more and make it more beautiful so you can feel home away from home. Luisa and me try to make your stay as pleasent as possible and anything disturbing your vacation please talk to us. We are here to help you. has become our second home for 6 month every year and the rest we spend in Europe organizing retreats along the spanish coast or just travel around Europe. Mostly Germany and Spain, though this year 2014 we taught yoga at the Camping Riedsee close to Donaueschingen from June to end of August.

Gokarna Yoga School Banglore
Gokarna Yoga School
Gokarna Yoga School born at the end of 2012: to teach Iyengar Yoga for travelers passing through a period longer or shorter in Gokarna, to create a meeting place for teachers and practitioners of Iyengar Yoga, for those traveling between Rishikesh and Dehradun, or the same Pune, city of Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute (RIMYI) and want to spend time in Gokarna between Yoga and sea.
â€¦is an ancient art, science, and philosophy that emphasizes performing oneâ€™s daily responsibilities with awareness, integrity, and compassion. From Sanskrit, the word â€œyogaâ€ translates as union of the mind, body, and spirit. For many, that includes an ongoing practice of yoga postures. Working through the instrument of the body, yoga teaches one to observe and integrate body, breath and mind, to penetrate beyond the outer, physical layers and reach the inner sheaths of oneâ€™s being.
Philosophy of Yoga
Patanjali, a scholar who lived approximately 2500 years ago, is credited with having written the Yoga Sutras, 196 terse aphorisms that teach about Ashtanga (eight limbed) Yoga. The â€œeightfold path,â€ includes yama, niyama, asana, pranayama, pratyahara, dharana, dhyana, and samadhi, and is non-linear. In fact, all the limbs may be practiced and integrated into asana, the third limb of Asthanga Yogaâ€”this is one of the most innovative and distinguishing aspects of BKS Iyengarâ€™s methodology. For example, the complete attention and presence required of dharana (concentration) can be achieved through the self-awareness brought by focusing on the alignment, actions, and techniques of any given posture. Yama, universal moral values, are also to be observed within the practice of asana. By recognizing limits within asana practices, to avoid injury and self-harm, one adheres to Ahimsa (nonviolence) ,one of the yamas. These principles should be transferred to your daily life, words, thoughts, and deeds.

Swaswara Ayurveda Beach Resort
"SwaSwara is an expression of the power of wellness in a space rich with healing energy. All the elements of nature embrace you here, resting and rejuvenating body and spirit. Neither a spa nor an ashram, SwaSwara is a sanctuary for your â€˜Prakrutiâ€™ or the innermost nature of an individual, that special blend of qualities that makes you unique.

SwaSwara is managed by people who transform their own lives, while creating memorable holiday experiences for you. Journeying into the self is a maxim that we advocate. While you practise it when on holiday, we get to do it on the job. Ayurveda The Self can be directly experienced. It is the centre of all thought, action and relationships, originating deep within the personality. The basic premise of Ayurveda is that everything that exists in the external universe also appears in the human body. It is a revered branch of medicine, healing through a tradition handed down from sages 5000 years ago, that works on the balance of your bio energies. Ayurveda treats with a combination of treatments both external and internal, a cleansing diet and conditioning therapies to provide relief from problems like blood pressure, obesity, arthritis, spondilysis and many more. Ayurveda believes this universe is made up of five great elements. Earth the solid state of matter, Water the liquid state, Fire that transforms solids into liquid and gas, Air the gaseous form and Ether the space in which everything happens. Ayurveda defines a human as the assemblage of the five great elements and the ""immaterial self."" These five elements combine in pairs to form three dynamic forces called doshas or â€˜that which changesâ€™. These doshas are Vata, Pitta and Kapha. With its great location and amazing setting Swaswara is worth a visit for those who really want to get away and enjoy a piece of unspoilt coastline.

Gokarna has a special flavor. Many sacred places, temples, a holy spring - create a special atmosphere here, conducive to immersion in the practice of yoga.
In the center of Gokarna is the Koti tirtha lake - "reservoir of a thousand holy springs", which, according to the legend, washes away all sins.
In the immediate vicinity of the Digambara View space - a minute walk on foot, there is Shiva's cave, called "cow's ear". According to one of the legends, the cave was the ear of the Prithvi land cow, through which Lord Shiva got out into the light. This is where the name Gokarna comes from, which means "cow's ear". According to legend, it was here, in the lands of Gokarna, that the demon Ravana, who took possession of Shiva Lingam, stopped to pray. And Ganesha in the form of a Brahmin, taking to hold the Lingam while Ravan performed the puja, lowered him to the ground, returning the Lingam's powers to Shiva.
