​About the teachers

Shivaji was known from an early age as a foremost exponent and expert of the tradition; its texts and practices. He was a child prodigy with a flair for recitation of Mantras for a prolonged time-span, practice of Yogic techniques, meditating for hours and studying the ancient Holy Scriptures.

After his school education, Shivaji dedicated his whole life to following the journey within by walking on the well-trodden ancient path of Yogic revolution shown by the Himalayan Masters, Sages, Great Yogis and Vedic Scholars. At the age of 14, crossing all familial and social boundaries and limitations, he left his home to attain spiritual enlightenment.

His first stepping stone in this journey was when he enrolled himself in 1989, into the ancient Vedic Gurukula tradition of Adishankaracharya, the biggest Vedic University in the world named ‘Maharshi Veda Vigyan Vishwa Vidyapeeth’, Noida, Ghaziabad, India, founded by H.H. Maharshi Mahesh Yogi. He began to live an ascetic Brahmacharya (celibate) life by maintaining Gurukula disciplines and Yogic principles while studying Veda (Vedic Rituals, Manta chants, Sanskrit literature, learning transcendental meditation and Yoga) in the Maharshi Ashram.

He gained proficiency in performing Pujas, Yajnyas, Abhisheka and various other Vedic rituals and ceremonies and later went on to share these traditions with wider society outside of the ashram environment in order to serve and benefit the welfare of others irrespective of cast, creed, gender, status or nationality.

After successfully completing a three year course in Vedic Science and Meditation (T.M) for which he achieved first rank, he was selected to visit the West to spread the message of Sanatana Vaidika Dharma.

The teacher has to understand the level of the student in order to impart it. From his early teaching phases, Shivaji believed in building up the competence level of his students and so therefore chooses the subjects that he teaches according to the individual needs, interests, level of experience, capacity and intensity of his students. He is distinctly recognised in the fields of Raja Yoga (Ashtanga – eight limbs), Mantra Yoga (16 limbs), Laya Yoga (9 limbs), Hatha Yoga (4 limbs), Kundalini Yoga, Tantra and Kriya Yoga. His basic curriculum includes the study of Hatha Yoga, Raja Yoga, Mantra Yoga, Bhakti Yoga and Laya Yoga. Other aspects of Yoga are also included, keeping the Holy Vedic scriptures and Yogic texts in perspective.

Yoga teacher and naturopathic nutritionist Vicky
Vicky has worked in the television and advertising industry since she was 18. Starting as a runner at Ealing film studios and working at MTV, BBC to name a few, started her own production company in 2004 in Shoreditch. Amazing as her successes were, her health started to suffer as a result. She turned to yoga to help with her migraines (which helped immensely) she did several month long retreats in Kerala, and Gokarna, where Victoria stayed a month to study with Swarmi Shiva Shankara.

Her curiosity for healthy living and wanting to learn more about food, she embarked on a naturopathic nutritional therapy course. She truly believes in yoga and food as forms of the medicine for the mind, body and soul, plus a huge dollop of meditation. Victoria now runs a nutrition practise in Harley Street, London, once a month. As well as teaching yoga in Ibiza, and London.

What past guests have said

”Just wanted to say thank you to you both for an amazing experience in Ibiza last week – seems ages ago already. Casa Shakti was a wonderful place to stay, amazing food prepared by Sam, loved my time with Fiona and really enjoyed the yoga, excellent teaching and explanation and ideas of how to progress own practice. I have been on 5 previous retreats and this was certainly one of the best, I will be back; please keep me posted of 2018 retreats!.” Thanks again, Lynn

”Vicky! Thank you! I will miss you terribly – your enthusiasm and energy is contagious. I could not feel any more blessed to have been part of your first retreat. I never would have said this before but I’m convinced something drew me to your site and to you. Please do keep in touch and know that I will always have a piece of you with me. I’m sure I will need to talk to someone as I think I was just about to break through some scary emotional bits – yesterday with you and today with Kate I found it very hard to keep it all in – and I’m NOT a cry-ey type of person. This was truly special!.” Love Greg
