Meet Your Yoga Teacher

I’ve been there. Working long hours and rarely making time for myself while ignoring that inner voice.

Yoga and nature are two things that allow me to see life from a more balanced perspective.

As soon as we create space for self-care and learn how to keep stress at healthy levels: creativity and courage flourish. I created Slowing Down Retreat to share my passions, my lifelong learnings, and the experience of self-discovery by living with no fear and with softer eyes.

Please don’t hesitate to travel without companions, most of our participants arrive alone and leave with many new same-minded friends.

Goa Yoga Retreat, January 2024

Vicky is a very special yoga teacher who we were able to experience for the first time in Goa. After so many different yoga teachers trying to fit the person into the system, we were looking to have a yoga teacher who fits the system into the person! She is beautiful to learn, precise in her cueing, gentle in her yoga adjustments, and creates a learning space where we, the yoga practitioners, can finally understand our breath, body, heart and mind.

Dear Vicky,

I wasn‘t supposed to be part of your yoga retreat, but after the first yoga class, in which you invited me, I wanted to stay with you and your group. I felt good from the first moment I sat down in the yoga shalla, because you spread such an overwhelming energy. It‘s so nice that you treat everyone like the individuals that they are and take your time for everybody’s needs. You are empathic, ambitious and funny, find the right words when it‘s necessary and teach yoga with passion.

Goa Yoga Retreat, January 2024

I had never been to India before and I didn't know what to expect.

Little did I know that I would have the best 10 days of my life! The special friends I made and the trips will last in my memory forever.

The Yoga practice in the morning with Vicky was wonderful and every day I learned a little more from her wonderful yoga teaching. I am a new yoga teacher and I loved learning new asanas and modifications. I got stronger in my body as the week progressed. In the afternoon we did some work on reflection and beautiful restorative yoga poses and delicious Shavasana.

Vicky is a very special person and a wonderful yoga teacher with a world of knowledge that she generously shares with everyone.

I am 60 years of age and I was the oldest in the group, but I felt like I was in my 30's again and living the life in beautiful Goa with wonderful people. My accommodation was great and just a stone's throw from the most beautiful beach. I swam at 7am before our session at 8am.

I would highly recommend this yoga retreat, you will feel safe, happy and nourished in every way.

Lefkada & Goa Yoga Retreat

Following the one and only Vicky on this retreat too, I trusted her to introduce me to Mother India! I can say ecstatically and deeply moved that I felt like I was born again! In an environment of unique natural beauty, Vicky, with an open heart that embraces all concerns and knows everything about how you feel and what you need, managed to create lifelong bonds for all of us in the group. We opened up, laughed to tears, danced, explored, felt like children again, deepened and worked with ourselves and fell back in love with yoga under Vicky's wonderful guidance who gave us new tools for our yoga practice at home. We relaxed into magical Savasana with the colors of the sunset and sunrise warming and opening our hearts! Magical things that I dreamed of for years already happened to me while I was there and they continue to happen! I feel like I want to sleep and wake up to go to the next yoga retreat there again!!! Finally, I can't imagine any other place besides Nalanda that Vicky has singled out for me to experience all this!!!

Goa Yoga Retreat, January 2024

I joined Vicky’s Living Big Yoga Retreat at the NALANDA resort Goa in January 2024 and had the most amazing time. We had a really fun group and the sessions were the perfect mix of active, dynamic poses, restorative yoga, journaling and sharing. Vicky is the best yoga teacher I have ever had - her attention to detail, enthusiasm and lightness of touch are just perfect. Her teaching covers a very broad range of physical and emotional aspects, and she is extremely knowledgeable about yoga and Ayurveda, amongst many other things. She created a very open, safe and friendly environment and I learned a huge amount which I have taken back with me and am now incorporating into everyday life. We had so many laughs and the hotel and facilities were excellent. I can highly recommend joining her yoga retreats, whether you are completely new to yoga or highly experienced!

Chitravana means painted forest. The resort was created from a painting using unique architecture to create a beautiful ambiance that came from the brilliant mind of Sri Murthy, the owner of the resort. Chitravana is simply stunning!   * For people sharing rooms we will give rooms with separate beds when possible. Many of the rooms have only a single king-sized bed. We do our best to match roommates in a way that lets everyone feel comfortable.
