6th  Review Reviewed by: Chloe Titard From: France

Attended to Healing Massage Course Level I , received Healing Massage Session with reiki and Aqua-Floating Therapyin August 2015 and 4 Reiki Sessions and attended to the Reiki I & II Certification in August 2016.

“Meeting Sonia change my life. She’s amazing!!!
Sonia is the Best massage therapist that I have ever met in all my travels so it was my dream to make the massage therapy course with her and my dream came true…
This course is really high quality! Sonia is a great teacher! She has real technical and theoretical knowledge. I learn so much…. I was so happy!
Sonia made me discover Reiki and I really felt the feels inside my body. What a wonderful experience!
I also discovered the aqua-floating therapy: a trip inside myself, a sensation of lightness… I have no word… Just try it, it’s amazing!
And Sonia gave me so much more… Her smile, her supporting, her advises about the life, her share, her friendship and her very big heart…
She is a master!!! I discovered with her, with numerology, with the affirmation, the crystal … an other world, an other life.
Sonia and her lovely family make of Shiva garden a haven of peaceful and made my stays very powerful moments of my life.

Sonia, I found the love, the happiness in my life and this all happened thanks to you. Last summer you changed me, you, our discussions, reiki… you allowed me to reconnect with my own. I feel stronger, more zen, I’m ready to live my dream, and I even met the love! You are my master, my guide, my Angel!
You are always in my heart. When I need to take a decision, I always think at you!
You really have a gift, you’re a wonderful person, an amazing person!
You are a very beautiful woman, a wonderful mother! Jayan, Divya and Nithya are so happy with you. You give them so much love! I’ve always been in AWE in front of your beautiful family!

Thank you so much Sonia

Attended to 4 levels of the Healing Massage CourseReiki Level I & II and Yoga Beginner Course and , received 4 Reiki Sessions, psychotherapy counseling, astrology & numerology,  life change and Sacred Feminine session from September to November 2014.

It was amazing course with highly qualified and extraordinary teacher. In one and half month Sonia passed to me an incredible amount of knowledge in very friendly, detailed and comprehensive manner. It was not only studying a fixed sequence of techniques and movements, but also practical shearing with teacher’s own experience which helps to develop sensitivity and awareness that is needed to effectively work in an individualized fashion.
Sonia teaches to ‘listen’ to the body, to sense energy flow, blockages and apply the intuition and sensitivity to ensure individualized treatment.”

Attended to the Reiki Level I & II , received 4 Reiki Sessions and attended to Workshop for Healers, Law of Attraction and Sacred Feminine Workshops between April and December 2015.

“My experience with Sonia is more personal rather than professional. I felt connected to her since we met.

Her generosity and endless love have no limits and she shows that in both her personal and professional life.

She is wise and an old soul, full of knowledge and passion for what she does. She is a natural healer.

I did two workshops with her: Reiki I and II, and Massage Course. Plus I received Reiki from her.

The workshops were really professional and well structured, serious and very complete.

She helped me in many ways, she saw something in me that made me change.

She is magic and very powerful. A strong woman.

Received 4 Reiki Sessions, psychotherapy & counseling and astrology & numerology, Life Change and Sacred Feminine sessions in September 2015.

“For one week I was model for a massage course. I am very grateful for this experience. Sonia is a wise, sensitive teacher. She is aware of everything, that happens in the class. The massage goes very deep and is a healing one, I think.

For 4 days I had live coach and Reiki sessions. These 4 days gave me a lot. There was love, understanding, healing , advice and counseling. Sonia is crystal clear, she is connected to old ancient knowledge, she sees and feels very well, what is needed to help. It is help, to move on. It is help to help yourself. It is help & healing. Not just for short term….Thank you, Sonia!”

Sonia and Jayan, hosts of the Shiva Garden, are really sympathetic, understanding and friendly pair.

Sonia is also amazing dancer, singer, qualified Hatha yoga teacher who provides unique creative yoga lessons with magical relaxation. As well she is a wise life coach and astrologer, healer, Reiki Master, massage therapist and teacher.
So, if you are looking for inner changes, true Self, would like to receive massage or even study massage therapy or Reiki, Shiva Garden is ideal place to start new life in very natural way.

If not, it’s also wonderful resort to relax and meet a new friends, play volleyball and read books in the beautiful garden with majority of Ayurvedic plants and trees.”

17th Review Reviewed by: Becky From: U.K.


Attended to the Workshops
Reiki I & II  April 2017.

I took the Reiki Levels 1 and 2 with Sonia and am so glad I did! I ended up there through serendipity-everything just sort of came together without much effort so I think it was meant to happen. We had a small but close-knit group for both courses and Sonia built an open and caring environment right from the beginning. I felt very comfortable and safe to share my experiences with the group. 

Sonia clearly believes in the power of reiki very strongly and communicates this well. She is an informative and inspiring teacher who is open to all questions and willing to share her skills and knowledge. By the end of the courses I felt confident in practising reiki on others and have been giving treatments with positive feedback and results. Sonia really cares about each of her students and is generous with her time-she created a What’s App group including everyone on our course, and we have all kept in contact since, to share experiences and to ask questions. Sonia is always there to guide us or offer advice. 

Going to India, and studying Reiki with Sonia has really changed my life. It offers me a way to connect to a deeper spirituality and a channel through which to help heal people-something I have always been drawn to. I can feel the effects of self-practice in my life-it has definitely impacted it for the better. I really hope I go on to build a successful Reiki practice and to offer my skills to others…it is thanks to Sonia that I have the knowledge and passion to do this. I highly recommend attending any workshops she is leading.

Shiva Gardens is a very friendly and welcoming place to stay. It feels homely and calm there and whilst you can choose to stay in a private room, a hut or a dorm, they have created a large shared space where guests can come together and socialize. It is very relaxed and it is easy to while away the whole day there! The staff are very helpful and friendly-they are always good to chat to and are happy to offer advice on transport etc. The kitchen is open pretty much all day and I would definitely recommend the paneer butter masala! I travelled around India for four months, and in terms of helpfulness, friendliness and ambience Shiva Gardens was definitely the best place I stayed!

“I love this woman! I’m so happy I was ‘serendipitously’ referred to her for Reiki. She is a genuine caring, honest, loving soul and full of life. I’m so happy to have been initiated into the first two levels of Reiki with her and a beautiful group of humans.”

16th Review Reviewed by: Andrej From: Check Republic

Received 4 Reiki Sessions , Astrology & Numerology full package, attended to the Life Coaching Seminar in 2017.

When I was leaving Shiva Garden the saying from Winnie the Pooh came up to my mind: How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodby so hard…

I spend in Varkala more than one month and visited most of the places and Shiva Garden was still my favorite place to come back and call it home for a while.

A great part of my inner and outer journey in Varkala were the courses and therapies i took with Sonia and as well great teachers and healers they are part of the community around her Academy.
Sonia took me first on the journey through energetic healing and reiki treatment which felt amazing to me and helped me to get more balanced which was my greatest wish and intention at the time. But Sonia is a holistic healer and it was not just about to come to the treatment but the healing aspect were all around Shiva Garden when we danced together at the evenings together with her children and every time when we I had chance to spend time with her and the children who were my favorite teachers and always reminded me about playfulness, being in this very moment and approach life with ease and curiosity.
I took part as well in the the aqua floating treatment, life changing workshop and astrology reading. I feel the smile on my face when I’m thinking how many insights she gave me and later in this short period many of them already took place in my life and indeed changed my life and my approach to various life situations. Even when is already more or less one year ago the spirit she helped me to raise is still living in me and growing stronger and everytime I have the feeling I’m loosing the right path I read some lines in the books she proposed to me and the my astrology reading which never stops to surprise me how much accurate it is.

Dear Sonia, thank you…

May all your steps become little dance by spreading your wisdom and healing in this world…

with love

I lost myself, and after having exchanged a few words together, she spoke about her workshops.

I was very interested, so, I did the workshops of law of attraction, Sacred feminine, Reiki levels I and II;

I received the Reiki by Sonia and Astrology and numerology session also.

Everything was amazing, fantastic it was very Helpful, for myself and my personal life also.

All workshops helped me in different state, in different part.

Sonia gives all sessions with a lot of generosity and love.

Attended to the Workshops Reiki I & II and Law of Attraction, Sacred Feminine. Received 4 Reiki Sessions, psychotherapy & counseling and astrology & numerology sessions between January and February 2016.

“I learned about the workshops offered by Sonia while visiting Shiva Garden. A friend of mine was staying at this guesthouse and we just dropped by for some tea. Fortunately, Sonia was available while I was there and provided me details about her workshops. It was this interaction with Sonia that helped me to decide that attending her workshops would be a wonderful learning opportunity. There was an instant connection and sisterhood formed.

The greatest part of the workshops for me was sharing intimate moments with the other participants of the workshops. I was able to attend the full week of workshops which included Reiki Level 1 and 2, Law of Attraction, and Sacred Feminine.  After spending a week together with some of the most incredible souls, we formed strong bonds and became a little family. This experience has been one of the greatest blessings in my life.

The only suggestion I have is in regards to the manuals provided in the workshops. Because Sonia’s first language is not English, I would recommend having someone review and give edits to the manuals. The content is beautiful and very informative, so it’s just a matter of reviewing for grammar. This is my only suggestion at this time”

13th Review Reviewed by: James From: U.K.

Attended to the Workshops Reiki I & II, Workshop For Healers, and Law of Attraction. Received 7 Reiki Sessions, psychotherapy & counseling and astrology & numerology sessions between November and February 2016.

“I found it absolutely wonderful! This has genuinely set me off on a different life path. My journey had taken me to a crossroads; I’d opened my life up by leaving Europe, but was starting to heal and look for a new life purpose. What I found was this; my life purpose (life couching) and healing skills.

The reiki I and II has started me on a journey that has changed me and helped me to connect with so many others, and help others. The experiences have been profound, the healing incredible (and deeply painful!). The doors that have been opened are incredible.

What I liked most in the Workshops of Reiki, Law of Attraction, Reiki therapy, Life Coach session, was the quality and purity of the teachings is fundamental and very appreciated. And the introduction to these healing and life principles have been hugely helpful, in fact life changing. The most helpful aspects were the hands-on experience time, the opportunity to learn all of Sonia skills, and the purity of the teachings – not diluted with any outside influences.

My only suggestion to improve the quality of the workshops is more experience time. Otherwise perfect, and the personal care by Sonia is life changing.

I found Shiva Garden Home Stay Wonderful. A beautiful environment and such a warm welcome.

What I did like the most was the teacher and the love.

Keep giving love, it changes everything. And keep passing on your wisdom.”

Attended to the Workshops Reiki I & II, Workshop For Healers, and Law of Attraction. Received 4 Reiki Sessions, psychotherapy & counseling and astrology & numerology sessions between January and February 2016.

“My experience with Sonia was simply life changing. With Reiki and counseling I found a way to relate to myself, my past experiences, my relationships in a way I had never been able to before. She opened my heart and made me realize that all the difficulties I had encountered had been learning’s which were pointing me to my future. Her healing is kind and compassionate, powerful and long lasting. I cannot thank her enough for the path that she has set me on, I am now on a spiritual journey which without the work with Sonia I believe may never have happened. She has guided me back to my soul, my heart and to all the love that is out there, which was just waiting to be seen. Thank you Sonia!

I loved the care, compassion and power of Reiki. The workshops were in depth, thorough and practical – I loved learning the healing art of Reiki and the ability to help others. The Law of Attraction workshop was a wonderful course, Sonia created a group dynamic which enabled us all to share and develop beautifully with each other.

 I did not stay at SG but ate there a number of times and used as venue for healing sessions and workshops. The food is great, especially the dhal! I love the style of the home stay, the vibe with music, play areas and outside tables is great.”

Attended to the Workshops Reiki IILaw of Attraction and Sacred Feminine. Received 4 Reiki Sessions, counseling and astrology & numerology session in February 2016.

“The Sonia Indigo Academy, functioning in Shiva Garden, is a island that offers a surprising mixture of knowledge and relaxation techniques. Sónia, the host and main teacher, offers a palette of courses filled with suggestions to improve your day to day life, live more happily and be more natural. She combines study but also life experience, and shares all she knows. Outstanding generosity. The courses always come with a manual that you can take with you as material to keep reading. She also shows all her book references and invites you to keep studying.  It is a lovely experience to train and study with her, the experience is complete with the lovely people you will find sharing it with you.

My favorite workshop was sacred feminine, maybe because it is a subject of study for me as well. All the life experience Sónia shares is more than filled with teachings.”

“I came to Varkala, Kerala in Nov 2015. I was looking to find a reiki practitioner in the area and heard great things about Sonia Indigo. After having first hand experience of Sonia’s work I signed up for the Reiki II workshop, law of attraction and feminine energy workshop. Sonia’s unique style comes from the heart, a great teacher is someone who lives by what they are teaching which Sonia does on a daily basis. Sonia shared all her knowledge and secrets on how to be the best practitioner you can be, to the finest detail. I have learnt and grown so much by meeting this wonderful angel and would thoroughly recommend her services to anyone. People like Sonia are the true earth workers here to help and serve others to make the world a better place. Thank you Sonia for your wisdom, much love xxx”

It helped me so much and gave me the inspiration and tools I needed to establish a daily routine. Sonia is so honest ad raw, I resonated with this and I think this is what makes the workshops so amazing.

Love you so much Sonia and thank you for being a part of this profound journey with me xxx”.

“I was traveling in south India last summer and spent about 1 week at the Shiva Garden Home-stay. The home-stay is beautiful, has good food and is close to the beach. Sonia and her whole family provide a warm atmosphere, and you can have Yoga every morning on the rooftop, which is just amazing.

But the most important thing was the Life Coach Sessions. During Yoga once in the morning, Sonia asked me if I am interesting to get to know me better and want learn how to help myself getting what I want in life. I was quite interested so we started the Life Coach training. Having access to Sonia’s knowledge was a huge privilege. Those days in Varkala were some of my happiest and clearest in my life. The life coach sessions opened my eyes and I am still drawing on the energy and ease she shared with me. I am still working on myself, doing meditation every day, preparing myself for my life´s work.

Thank you very much Sonia and I wish you and your family a life full of happiness and good fortune!”

Every morning I had yoga classes with Sonia. I’m a beginner in yoga and she has really inspired me to continue. After two hours class of meditation, pranayama and yoga with her, I was always happy and peaceful rest of the day.

Try Yoga lessons with Sonia, you won’t regret it.

I visited Shiva Garden in November when I was on holiday in Varkala, when I returned in late December it was a no brainer that I was going to stay here. So for two months Shiva Garden was my home, the rooms offer everything you need, I had an en suite bathroom (cold water only, but this was no issue, as it was so hot outside) and a balcony. What makes Shiva Garden so special is the lovely people who run it and the beautiful garden, that encourages guests to socialize. It just has a very chilled and relaxed atmosphere, I made fantastic friends here and it was ridiculously hard for me to leave.

(…) I can’t wait to stay here again! Thank you Sonia and Jayan, until December.

“I came to Shiva Garden in October and didn’t leave until December. Coming to shiva garden was the best thing I could do. There I found a home an a family.

I started doing yoga with Sonia and for me it was the best introduction to yoga. Sonia respects everybody’s limits and guides you through the sequences gently. Two months of yoga with Sonia inspired me, who was a complete beginner, to take a teacher training course which I will do soon.

Shiva garden is a place for meeting good people and there I found friends for life. I am happy to call shiva garden my second home in Varkala and will definitely come back.”

Set out in between a garden of coconut palms, banana trees and papaya…this place is paradise.
Jayan and Sonia have done really well to make this a beautiful family homely vibe, with little baby Divya adventurously walking around and a pet dog, among the beautiful people you meet here. It is hard to not have your heart stolen.

Also I really enjoyed Sonia’s morning yoga classes. Her teaching approach is so caring and warming.

Like many, I stayed longer then intended.
Highly recommend to anybody visiting Varkala.
You join a ever growing family here.
Looking forward to returning.

“The Best place in Varkala” 

6th Review Reviewed by: Sarah, From: UK, On: 6 December 2013

Stayed in Shiva Garden Home Stay: From September to December 2013

“I have stayed at Shiva Garden for just over 3 months. It is easy to get stuck in Varkala but somewhere like Shiva Garden makes you want to stay forever. It is a haven of peace and the owners have created a real family atmosphere for backpackers travelling alone or in groups. I came here with a friend but decided to stay on when he returned home.

The yoga classes in the morning are brilliant – I was a complete beginner, couldn’t even touch my toes and now I’m almost at advanced level. The yoga teacher also offers massages, reiki and life coaching of which I’ve tried all three and they were really therapeutic, I’m very glad I did them.

The rooms are great and clean and the communal area is brilliant and a great place to hang out with other backpackers. Shiva Garden is my home in India and I’m already planning my next trip back.”

“We stayed for 5 days in one of the very comfortable apartments around a very big and shady garden with a big common table and many simple rooms is a perfect place to meet travelers and to rest in the hammocks looking at the huge coconut trees. The good ambience given by the staff, the soft music, the many guests and the host , Jayan and Sonia.

Sonia offers very good and personalized yoga classes in a nice space on the roof, in three days i could really fell my progress . She was also an excellent holistic psycho therapist for me.

Jayan was always ready to help and give us good advice’s.

The staff was always ready play with our two sons, of 11 and 2 years old boys. Our baby had a lot of fun playing with Divya, the host´s baby who shared all her toys during our stay. The wi-fi worked perfectly and there was good books to read and exchange. Food given is delicious!

“The moment I entered Shiva Garden, everything felt so peaceful and relaxed. I had planned to stay just a few days, but ended up staying almost a month. I loved the big garden, with its coconut trees, banana trees, hammocks, swings and tree huts.

Every morning I started my day with yoga. I really liked Sonia’s way of teaching and her guided meditations. Also an astrology / numerology session with her gave me a lot of insights.

Varkala is a perfect place to find the balance between self development, relaxation and social time. Almost everybody who ends up at Shiva Garden, stays much longer than they originally intended. Therefore you really get to know each other and it’s so nice to spend time together. Varkala, and especially Shiva Garden, is a place which is pretty difficult to leave…”

I was so lucky to have been lead to Shiva Garden. I spent one week here very happily.

“I learned yoga from the owner on a beautiful deck in the treetops on property. She also offered one to one life coaching which was very helpful to my on my path.

As I was taking flute lessons from a local artist, Venu the guests got the pleasure of hearing his divine melodies as well. The guests seam to enjoy the community atmosphere and there was often a good conversation happening in the backyard hut where one could also order good traditional Kerala food and western food as well. There was one long term resident from England who was writing a book here as well as tourists passing through. Shiva Garden was a cozy and peaceful, clean and friendly home away from home. Thank you for the memorable visit!”

“Shiva Garden is Amazing” 

2nd Review Reviewed by: Cai Priestley (Wild Life Photographer) From: Canada On: 8 October 2012

Stayed in Shiva Garden Home Stay: September 2012, travelled as a couple

“We had an incredible two week stay at Shiva Garden in Varkala!

My girlfriend was having yoga lessons every morning with Sonia up on the rooftop, despite Sonia being eight months pregnant.

The owners, Jayan and Sonia, made us feel at home and are two of the kindest people I’ve ever met! The food there was incredible. We ate a traditional Keralan thali almost every day, and the prices were more than reasonable. The accommodation was lovely, and after a week in one of the regular rooms, we were allowed to move into one of the apartments for our final week, with no raise in price. Sonia and Jayan were incredibly helpful during our stay and for my birthday they took us out onto the backwaters to visit Golden Island.

The location of the guest house was perfect too. Just a five minute walk from the beach and only a two minute tuk-tuk drive to get to Varkala town. Every time we wanted to go somewhere, Jayan would call for a tuk-tuk for us so we barely had to lift a finger. Subash was one of the staff at the guest house and though he didn’t speak much English, he was an incredible worker and saw to all our needs. Lots of young travelers would show up to stay for a night or two and the dining table was a great place to meet other people from all over the world. If you’re traveling alone, as a couple or in a group, Shiva Garden is an ideal place to stay when you’re in Kerala.

I highly recommend it!!”

“I was recommended to stay at Shiva Garden by a friend and I was not disappointed.

I enjoyed enormous bowls of fresh fruit salad in the peaceful garden and took yoga lessons with Sonia every day. I was the most relaxed I’ve felt on my travels so far.

I had a lovely airy room, a cute balcony and thoughtful finishing touches such as candles, incense and seashells in the bathroom. It was clean, well presented and suited my needs perfectly. There is a swimming pool at the hotel next door that you can pay a small fee to use.
It is 5 min walk to the cliff and beaches, and a torch is advisable in the evenings as the way is not always well lit.

I changed my travel plans in order to stay longer at Shiva Garden because 3 days just wasn’t enough. This place has a wonderful feel about it and I look forward to coming back.”

Received 4 Reiki Sessions , Astrology & Numerology full package, attended to the Life Coaching Seminar in 2017.

When I was leaving Shiva Garden the saying from Winnie the Pooh came up to my mind: How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodby so hard…

I spend in Varkala more than one month and visited most of the places and Shiva Garden was still my favorite place to come back and call it home for a while.

A great part of my inner and outer journey in Varkala were the courses and therapies i took with Sonia and as well great teachers and healers they are part of the community around her Academy.
Sonia took me first on the journey through energetic healing and reiki treatment which felt amazing to me and helped me to get more balanced which was my greatest wish and intention at the time. But Sonia is a holistic healer and it was not just about to come to the treatment but the healing aspect were all around Shiva Garden when we danced together at the evenings together with her children and every time when we I had chance to spend time with her and the children who were my favorite teachers and always reminded me about playfulness, being in this very moment and approach life with ease and curiosity.
I took part as well in the the aqua floating treatment, life changing workshop and astrology reading. I feel the smile on my face when I’m thinking how many insights she gave me and later in this short period many of them already took place in my life and indeed changed my life and my approach to various life situations. Even when is already more or less one year ago the spirit she helped me to raise is still living in me and growing stronger and everytime I have the feeling I’m loosing the right path I read some lines in the books she proposed to me and the my astrology reading which never stops to surprise me how much accurate it is.

Dear Sonia, thank you…

May all your steps become little dance by spreading your wisdom and healing in this world…

with love

Received 4 Reiki Sessions , some astrology and numerology insights, attended to the Reiki Levels 1 & 2 Certifications in 2016.

“I stayed at Shiva Garden for the best part of 2 months. It was my home away from home for this time, and I was treated like friend and family.
While I was there I participated in a Reiki course, I had already completed the level through another Reiki master but was blown away by how much additional knowledge I gained in Sonia’s course. She is very thorough and a great master.

I also received a course of Reiki treatments, and this also was such an amazing experience. Sonia is not only a powerful healer, but her caring personality and the addition of being a good councillor, guide and working with astronomy and numerology, made the treatment so much more benefit than just giving some a Reiki healing. I started to look deeper into what was causing the problems.

My astrology and numerology discussion was full of amazing useful knowledge, and the aqua therapy is a must try, it’s incredible, I felt like a child, being lulled through different emotions, letting go entirely. Such a beautiful experience.

I was also lucky enough to team up with another healer that happened to be there and do some group workshops, and also share my gifts and therapies. Sonia is very open to new ideas and sharing, she has a beautiful presence, and her energy seems to draw many other amazing healers and spiritual people. to Shiva Garden

While I was at Shiva Garden, I ate mostly there in the restaurant, the food was always amazing and reasonably priced. It was like eating at home, and the staff were always happy to accommodate my fussy ways. (Special diets available).

I will be back for sure, with love and light”

“I learned about the workshops offered by Sonia while visiting Shiva Garden. A friend of mine was staying at this guesthouse and we just dropped by for some tea. Fortunately, Sonia was available while I was there and provided me details about her workshops. It was this interaction with Sonia that helped me to decide that attending her workshops would be a wonderful learning opportunity. There was an instant connection and sisterhood formed.

The greatest part of the workshops for me was sharing intimate moments with the other participants of the workshops. I was able to attend the full week of workshops which included Reiki Level 1 and 2, Law of Attraction, and Sacred Feminine.  After spending a week together with some of the most incredible souls, we formed strong bonds and became a little family. This experience has been one of the greatest blessings in my life.

The only suggestion I have is in regards to the manuals provided in the workshops. Because Sonia’s first language is not English, I would recommend having someone review and give edits to the manuals. The content is beautiful and very informative, so it’s just a matter of reviewing for grammar. This is my only suggestion at this time”

Attended to the Workshops Reiki I & II, Workshop For Healers, and Law of Attraction. Received 7 Reiki Sessions, psychotherapy & counseling and astrology & numerology sessions between November and February 2016.

“I found it absolutely wonderful! This has genuinely set me off on a different life path. My journey had taken me to a crossroads; I’d opened my life up by leaving Europe, but was starting to heal and look for a new life purpose. What I found was this; my life purpose (life couching) and healing skills.

The reiki I and II has started me on a journey that has changed me and helped me to connect with so many others, and help others. The experiences have been profound, the healing incredible (and deeply painful!). The doors that have been opened are incredible.

What I liked most in the Workshops of Reiki, Law of Attraction, Reiki therapy, Life Coach session, was the quality and purity of the teachings is fundamental and very appreciated. And the introduction to these healing and life principles have been hugely helpful, in fact life changing. The most helpful aspects were the hands-on experience time, the opportunity to learn all of Sonia skills, and the purity of the teachings – not diluted with any outside influences.

My only suggestion to improve the quality of the workshops is more experience time. Otherwise perfect, and the personal care by Sonia is life changing.

I found Shiva Garden Home Stay Wonderful. A beautiful environment and such a warm welcome.

What I did like the most was the teacher and the love.

Keep giving love, it changes everything. And keep passing on your wisdom.”

“My experience with Sonia was simply life changing. With Reiki and counseling I found a way to relate to myself, my past experiences, my relationships in a way I had never been able to before. She opened my heart and made me realize that all the difficulties I had encountered had been learning’s which were pointing me to my future. Her healing is kind and compassionate, powerful and long lasting. I cannot thank her enough for the path that she has set me on, I am now on a spiritual journey which without the work with Sonia I believe may never have happened. She has guided me back to my soul, my heart and to all the love that is out there, which was just waiting to be seen. Thank you Sonia!

I loved the care, compassion and power of Reiki. The workshops were in depth, thorough and practical – I loved learning the healing art of Reiki and the ability to help others. The Law of Attraction workshop was a wonderful course, Sonia created a group dynamic which enabled us all to share and develop beautifully with each other.

 I did not stay at SG but ate there a number of times and used as venue for healing sessions and workshops. The food is great, especially the dhal! I love the style of the home stay, the vibe with music, play areas and outside tables is great.”

“The Sonia Indigo Academy, functioning in Shiva Garden, is a island that offers a surprising mixture of knowledge and relaxation techniques. Sónia, the host and main teacher, offers a palette of courses filled with suggestions to improve your day to day life, live more happily and be more natural. She combines study but also life experience, and shares all she knows. Outstanding generosity. The courses always come with a manual that you can take with you as material to keep reading. She also shows all her book references and invites you to keep studying.  It is a lovely experience to train and study with her, the experience is complete with the lovely people you will find sharing it with you.

My favorite workshop was sacred feminine, maybe because it is a subject of study for me as well. All the life experience Sónia shares is more than filled with teachings.”

Counseling made in October 2015

From the moment that we met Sonia, we connected with her wisdom, compassion and authenticity. Meeting as friends, we were not expecting to turn so quickly to her for counseling. But life presented us with a huge and unexpected challenge and we needed help! Sonia was the first person that we thought of to ask for guidance. Within one session, Sonia had identified the root of our challenge and had guided us to a very clear understanding of problem and how to move forward. She offered us simple but powerful tools. We walked away feeling completely empowered. And within 24 hours, we put her advice into action and completely turned around the challenge. Sonia has the ability to hear what is trying to be communicated and the ability to speak truth in an understandable and empowering way. We will always be grateful for her extraordinary wisdom, and the way in which she helped to transform a difficult situation into a life affirming lesson.

Having access to Sonia’s knowledge was a huge privilege. Those days in Varkala were some of my happiest and clearest in my life. The life coach sessions opened my eyes and I am still drawing on the energy and ease she shared with me. I am still working on myself, doing meditation every day, preparing myself for my life´s work.

Stayed in Shiva Garden Home Stay: April 2015

I visited this hostel for 2 nights in March 2015 and, as the other reviewers have said, it was lovely.

-Really nice energy in the garden
-Friendly guests and a welcoming common area (with wifi)
-The staff went above and beyond to ensure that we had a room we liked and felt comfortable during our stay
-Walking distance to the cliff
-Daily yoga classes
-Great value for price

-The biggest pro, though, was the life coaching session with Sonia. She radiates positive energy and wisdom, and created time in her packed schedule to share that wisdom and help me get clarity on a situation I was facing. She went above and beyond, sending me other resources and links so I could continue to benefit from her perspective after the session was over.

I highly recommend her.
