Bamboo is such a wonderful place! Here's a few reasons why I returned to beautiful Patnem for the fourth time this winter: Staff is lovely and chilled-out, yet everything runs very efficiently and on time. Food is amazing. The en-suite huts are clean and pretty, and right on the beach, so it really feels you're in nature. The location at the end of this quiet beach is perfect. And here's a reason for all the yoga people who might worry it's just a holiday/drop-in classes kinda place. The yoga is fantastic! All the teachers have been very good and qualified. I did 2 classes/day for 2 weeks, and all of them were different (styles of yoga, concentrating on different aspects, workshops etc). I would like to especially mention Jenn and her super fun (and hard!) "funky flow" classes. And mostly Nora, who's classes and workshops were not only fun, but exceptionally informative and helpful, really improved my technique, alignment and strength.
