Little Cove Yoga
Location and Accommodation
Imagine practicing yoga under the gentle sway of coconut palm trees, with the sound of the ocean as your soundtrack. Our retreat is set on the stunning Cola Beach, where the pristine white sand meets the turquoise waters of the Arabian Sea. Stay in comfortable beachfront accommodations that provide the perfect blend of tranquility and luxury, allowing you to unwind and recharge.
India, Goa & Safety
It might feel scary to go across the world to India to attend a yoga retreat and that’s why we’ve created systems to make you feel secure and comfortable.
First, it’s good to know that Goa is generally considered a safe destination for travelers. The state of Goa attracts a significant number of tourists each year, and the local authorities prioritize the safety and well-being of visitors.
In good time before the retreat we will have an online meeting where we’ll provide you with all information regarding what to think about, and what to pack.
VIM Yoga Academy will arrange for you to transfer safely from the airport to the Little Cove Resort, and we will also arrange for an air-port buddy, another participant you can meet up with at the airport in order to feel secure.

Take time to indulge in relaxation, sunbathe on the beach, swim in the crystal-clear waters, and pamper yourself with rejuvenating Ayurvedic massages and treatments.
We encourage you to find balance, joy, and nourishment in every aspect of your experience.

Moni and Emilie met during their 300hr Yoga Teacher Training and instantly felt a strong connection. They are both serious yoga nerds with passion for both anatomy, analyzing poses and sequences as well as yoga philosophy and energetic anatomy.
VIM Yoga Academy is the result of their unique collaboration, aiming to certify excellent yoga teachers who can actually make a living teaching yoga – if they would want to.
LEAD TEACHER TRAINER
Meet Moni, co-founder of Vim Yoga Academy. With more than 20 years of experience teaching internationally, Moni is an expert in movement education.
She is an E-RYT500 accredited Vinyasa Yoga Teacher, Guild certified Feldenkrais Practitioner and Certified in Ayurvedic Massage. She has taught at every level of education in movement and performance training, including under-graduate and post-graduate levels in higher education. She works with beginners to advanced, as well as training professionals in theatre, dance, and yoga.
Moni’s commitment to the study of movement dates back to 1997 when she began her university studies as a dancer and simultaneously started practicing yoga. Her practice is deeply rooted in Ashtanga, as well as alignment-based Vinyasa Yoga.
In 2004-2011, Moni first began integrating yoga into her pedagogical approach to embodied movement training when she was a Senior Lecture at Rose Bruford College, a leading UK Theatre and Performance institution. As a Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner since 2012, Moni’s approach to Yoga and movement training integrates neurology and functional movement practices to bring about informed brain-body awareness.
Moni has a BA in Dance/Drama and a Masters in Physical Theatre. She now applies her knowledge within the luxury wellness and detox field, and is currently working as part of an expert team at Chateau du Launay, as the lead yoga teacher, leading weekly 7-day intensive retreats.
Fascinated by the mind-body in motion, Moni has dedicated her career to the practical as well as philosophical study of embodied movement training practices. She is motivated to teach others led by her core belief that movement and meditation are fundamental to the physical, emotional and spiritual health of all human-beings.
Meet Emilie, co-founder of Vim Yoga Academy. Back in 1999, she embarked on her journey seeking movement and spirituality, purchasing her first yoga video on VHS. But it wasn’t until several years later when she discovered Vinyasa Flow that her love for yoga truly flourished, and she found herself fully dedicated to the practice.
In a short period of time, without any prior experience in dance or gymnastics, Emilie’s physical practice advanced to a very high level, achieving feats in her forties that most yogis can only dream of.
Today, she’s a distinguished E-RYT500 accredited Vinyasa Teacher, with a focus on retreats, education, and online yoga programs and memberships.
Emilie also has a Masters Degree in Industrial Design and prior experience as a UX/UI designer, skills that now come in handy for branding, social media, digital marketing, and managing a successful online and offline yoga business.
As a self-taught yoga practitioner, Emilie has honed a unique approach to creating creative and fulfilling classes that’s enriched by her background in various movement practices.
Emilie is also dedicated to meditation and teachers both meditation and Yoga Nidra, and includes in her mission to bring yoga outside off the mat.
