OCTOBER 10 - 24, 2021
2 weeks of yoga
and related practices
That make us alive
It is an opportunity to study and improve the geometry of your body, to learn a lot of new things and have a great time in the company of people close to you in the privacy of mountain retreat. We will learn to control our breathing by comfortably integrating our breaths and exhalations with yoga asanas and meditate in the open air.

“When you listen to yourself, everything comes naturally. It comes from inside, like a kind of will to do something. Try to be sensitive. That is yoga.― Petri Räisänen

The Gomarduli Yoga Festival team is united by a common vision, yet each of us is unique in our own way. We make this festival because we are in self-development and we are glad to gather the same wonderful community, united by the idea of a versatile opening of human potential.
I've been doing yoga since 2016.

For the last few years I've been working on different projects: a business selling musical equipment, a non-profit art project in Kyoto supported by the Japanese government. And all this was extremely interesting, but too far from my mission.

Thanks to the support of a higher power, earlier this year I was determined: I had to spread knowledge. In the spring I got to Georgia, and today I am happy because life gave me the opportunity to create this festival.

Two weeks of yoga, self-development, communicating with teachers and like-minded people. In the mountains!

What could be better!?
At first yoga came into my life as a personal practice.

In the mat sessions I discovered a temporary pleasure and peace. After a while I began to notice that this feeling could be extended to life outside the mat, and this is where the real yoga began.

After experiencing practicing and teaching in various settings, I can definitely say that nothing is as supportive and uplifting as a collective energy. Self-development in the company of friends is an excellent opportunity to overcome my doubts and achieve new and encouraging results.

Now I feel at ease and am excited about meeting like-minded people at the upcoming festival.

We love our international teachers team

"The path to self is different for everyone. And it has to be found! There is nothing more important than hearing your individuality. I have been exploring the connection of body, breath, thought and emotion for over 10 years and will help you in your exploration as well.
My goal is to help students learn how to feel their bodies more finely and expand their understanding of how to interact with them."

"As a teacher with classical education I see the prospect not to teach as many exercises, techniques or styles as possible, but to make the student fall in love with life, with health, with doing yoga. Everything else will happen on its own, without effort."

"The practice of yoga for me is a mysticism, a sacred dance, a prayer to God through the body, a dissolution in the Present. That's why in yoga I want to be closer to Nature."
Vanessa Isbert

She was educated in the Govardhan eco-village in India.

"Through my own practice of movement, I discovered the healing power of the elements. As I become aware of my oneness with my surroundings, I feel connected to the elements within and around us. Yoga is a way of finding and connecting with my true self.

"For more than 6 years I have been active in teaching. I see that those who have been to an event with me once, usually tend to go to lectures and courses again and again. In my lectures I show how similar laws and principles define the work of society and the work of a living organism. I learn to see the principles of interaction rather than a formal shell. People say that during and after my events they discover new bright sides, new possibilities and make new steps in personal self-development."
