Yogamea school 2013 – 2018 Rishikesh Yog Peeth Yoga Alliance E-RYT 200, RYT 500
Timea Vitez discovered yoga after having a serious car accident many years ago.
She started studying and practising alone from an old book that a friend had given her.

Having discovered a great passion for yoga discipline, a few years later she ventured towards her first trip to India where she attended a training programme for yoga teachers at the Rishikesh Yog Peeth school. Pleased with her first experience, but anxious to go more in depth, she returned to Rishikesh several times in the following years and repeated the same experience.

She is the co-founder of YogaMea, a school with Indian origins and headquarters in Italy and Goa, India. Timea is specialized in yoga teacher training and is recognized by the Yoga Alliance of the U.S.A., the U.K., the Indian government and the Italian CSEN, C.O.N.I. sports committee. Today, she is recognized as an HR-RYT (highly recommended registered yoga teacher).


Three healthy Yoga meals à la carte will be served to our guests every day.
Refreshments, fruit and tea are also available.

The restaurant specializes in local fish and seafood dishes: freshly caught lobster, prawns and fish, bought directly from fishermen’s boats every morning.

Our chefs are at your disposal to satisfy your individual needs and to create culinary masterpieces using the best local fresh products.

The menu offers a wide variety of dishes à la carte, ranging from a refined Mediterranean cuisine to Indonesian dishes. Guests can choose to have their meals in the intimacy of the restaurant, the outdoor restaurant, the patio or the romantic area of tables surrounding the pool.

Apart from meals, you can enjoy our fantastic drinks in different locations: at the main bar around the pool, at the new Blue Bar at the end of the Eastern Beach, where you can enjoy your favourite drink in the shade of a palm tree or on the comfortable waterfront double beds, or at the splendid Sunset Lounge located on the west side, where you can sip on a cocktail while admiring the island’s spectacular sunsets.

    You must give yourself a chance to meet this family that we will never forget.

    I had such a great experience with the YOGAMEA School, teachers and the hole team.
    My boyfriend and I, we did a yoga retreat, and I really recommend this school!
    We loved the way they practice yoga, full of love, joy, truth, professionalism and most of all the way they treated the students and the people that was joining our classes everyday. We felt really special and unique, and we got to get all the postures well done. Even with 15 or more people in a class, either Bilu and Timea were always so careful and always paying attention to all our movements to make sure that with were doing the right thing. The rooms were comfortable, clean, nice and neat. The food was amazing! I felt like home…
    From the cook to the managers and teachers, the hole team, very attentive, friendly, they always received us with a smile and hug!
    You must give yourself a chance to meet this family that we will never forget.

    My Experience at Yogamea Goa was Excellent!!!

    My Experience at Yogamea Goa was Excellent!! I attended the YTTC in February and hat a great time. The goal, gaining confidence to teach beginners, was absolutely fulfilled. Giving classes back home and receiving great feedback from my first students gives me the confidence to recommend Yogamea to anyone who is looking for a YogaTeacherTraining. Davide and Timi often invited guestspeakers to give interesting talks in front of the class about yoga related topics like ayurveda and the bhagavad gita. Davide and Timi are very giving, my girlfriend who didn´t attend the course was often allowed to eat with us in the school and join the drop in classes free of charge. Bilu is an amazing yoga teacher, his classes definitely brought my asanas to the next level! Prepare yourself for intensive 4 weeks, with a lot of sweat, studying and fun.
    I can only say thank you to Yogamea and the great staff

    Real nice, caring and professional staff and teachers!

    Real nice, caring and professional staff + teachers. The center of Cesenatico is also very cosy and beautiful with lots of nice restaurants and is a 15 minute bike ride away and the beach is a one minute walk. You get a lot for a very friendly price. I usually never go to the same place twice for a holiday, but now I’m considering to return next year.

    I feel incredibly lucky to have experienced!

    I was staying a couple of doors down from Yoga Mea in Goa for two weeks in March 2016, and decided to try out the yoga there. I’m so glad I did – I feel incredibly lucky to have experienced Prahlad Singh’s classes. I’ve been doing yoga for about 18 years, and this was some of the best teaching and the most effective adjustments I’ve encountered. It took me to a new level, and I was so sorry not to have been able to stay for longer… I’m back in the UK now and I did my regular class yesterday – I felt a new freedom and openness in my body which I am so grateful for. Thank you Yoga Mea! It’s made me think seriously about doing the YTTC in the future.

    The staff at the accommodation were lovely!

    I just finished my yoga teacher training in Cesenatico. I cannot thank Timea and Davide for all that they did for my fellow students and I. I will admit that I did not have the greatest relationship with the guest teacher, however, the rest of the experience made up for this. With regards to the course, it is intensive, but manageable if you organise your time well. The staff at the accommodation were lovely and the school is on the beach. I intend to do more training with Yogamea school in the future. Highly recommended.

    It’s been an amazing experience, a precious opportunity!

    What was given to me first of all, is the knowledge that in small steps, day after day, it’s possible to make major changes and the enthusiasm that this process brings.
