About this Retreat
Listed as one of the Top 10 Yoga Retreats by the Guardian, the retreat is a stunning beachfront Yoga resort with eco-friendly accommodation in the tropical and unspoilt south of Goa. They are known for their friendly team and welcoming atmosphere, where an international clientele feel at home. It is the prime location on one of Goa’s best beaches. Built on fine, white sand between the relics of a sacred Hindu site and the ocean, the retreat is the perfect place for relaxing and watching the sea. There is always a gentle breeze and the ocean is warm but refreshing – ideal for regular dips. Only a few minutes’ walk along the beach from shops and other fine restaurants, you can ‘retreat’ at our place but still ‘escape by foot’. The surrounding area is breath-taking and easily accessible for short trips and excursions.
We’ll be privileged with neighbours of wild dolphins, and you can often spot these beauties during our morning practice. Those wanting to avoid the winter blues will find the retreat the ideal place to delight the senses and get into shape.
