Instructors

TIMEA VITEZ

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).

Food:

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.
