Bamboo Yoga Retreat is located at the far southern end of beautiful Polem beach in Canacona, South Goa. Polem beach is Goa’s southernmost beach, a serene and secluded 700-metre stretch of pristine golden sand fringed with coconut palms and native casuarina trees and flanked at the northern and southern ends by rocky hillocks, offering peace and tranquility amidst a stunningly beautiful natural setting which is reminiscent of how Goa was 50 years ago before the tourists arrived. The beach is perfect for quiet sunbathing and swimming, and there is even access by boat and by foot across the rocks to other hideaway coves and beaches.

Goa is India's smallest - and some would say most friendly - state, boasting some of the best beaches in Asia. However, it's not just sand, sea, and sunsets. Goa's mix of Indian and Portuguese heritage means you will find white churches poking out from the coconut palms alongside Hindu temples. It is a very safe place for guests to arrive alone and go out at night.

Whilst some of north Goa has suffered from over-development, the far south is still relatively unspoiled, with its lush Western Ghat mountain range, beautiful backwaters, and long golden beaches. It is against this peaceful and scenic tropical backdrop that Bamboo runs its yoga holidays and retreats.

There are very few tourists at Polem beach, even in the peak tourist season, so it remains quiet and secluded, making it a very good place for a relaxing holiday away from it all. Local town Chaudi, a 20-minute drive away, has banks and ATMs, a supermarket, well-stocked chemists, and a colourful Saturday fruit and veg market. The busier beach resorts of Palolem and Patnem are also only a 20-minute taxi or rickshaw ride away, with their wider mix of cafes, restaurants and bars, money exchange and travel agents, and shops selling clothing and souvenirs alongside everyday essential such as toiletries, are also only a 20-minute taxi or rickshaw ride away.

Program

Daily yoga classes are held in our beach-facing Sunset, Shakti and Shiva Shalas. With nothing between you and the Arabian ocean, it is the ultimate spot to salute the sun, whilst the sea breeze keeps you comfortable even in tropical temperatures.

People from all backgrounds and levels of experience are welcome - from yoga devotees to those looking to regenerate from a stressful life, or if you simply want a healthy holiday combining classes and treatments with getting a tan! And whether gathering as a group or traveling solo, Bamboo Yoga Retreat creates a warm welcoming atmosphere so that everyone feels at home, with group dinner nights under the stars.

Your yoga experience will be flexible, with flowing dynamic classes in the morning and more restorative sunset sessions later in the day. With a changing schedule of different disciplines, from Ashtanga and Vinyasa Flow to Hatha, Sivananda, Iyengar, and Yin, you have the chance to find the yoga styles that work for you. All classes combine yoga poses with breathwork and meditation.

Food

Like every part of our ethos, our food is all about flexibility and balance. At Bamboo Yoga Retreat, our restaurant focuses on healthy, wholesome and nutritious cuisine, organic and locally sourced wherever possible, and prepared and cooked with love by our team of Nepalese chefs.

To start your day, we prepare a freshly squeezed juice of the day, which could be watermelon and ginger, or pineapple lemon and mint to cleanse your body and give you an energy boost for your sun salutations. There is also a big fresh tropical fruit salad every morning.

A healthy buffet brunch is served after the morning yoga session, homemade yogurt, local breads, eggs and muesli, with some Indian-inspired vegetable dishes and salads for those who've built up an appetite with their exertions. And then time to relax and watch the waves from our beach lounge with a herbal tea or Indian chai.

A selection of snacks, salads, super juices, and smoothies are available all day at our restaurant, along with daily specials based around seasonal produce from the local market. Bamboo Yoga Retreat serves a selection of teas and locally baked cookies in the afternoon before your yoga session to give you an energy boost.

For dinner, a delicious Indian and Asian fresh vegetarian buffet is served daily with lots of fresh salads, all of it lovingly prepared to help your body's restoration and growth, but most of all to tastes great!

Communal tables or lovely lounges await you to enjoy your cuisine for yoga holidays. We also put a table on the beach under the stars for special occasions.

Things to do (optional)

If you fancy a day off the mat, of have some time after your yoga retreat, there are some wonderful places to visit in Goa. From boat trips to spot dolphins and kayaking to secret coves, to exploring the coastline by scooter. Just a short drive up the coast are the neighbouring unspoiled beaches of Galjibag, famed as a nesting ground for Olive Ridley turtles, and Talpona, or check out the busier beach resorts of Patnem and Palolem which are just an easy 20-minute drive up the coast.

Bamboo Yoga Retreat also has its very own Kayak and Paddleboard which are available to guests for hire.

Nature lovers will enjoy Cotigao Wildlife Sanctuary, one of the world's biodiversity hotspots just a few kilometers south of Patnem. Whether or not you catch a glimpse of an elusive leopard or a troop of monkeys, the mountainous jungle scenery is spectacular.

If you're an architecture buff, take a trip to the colonial Latin quarter in Panjim, Goa's new capital, and to Old Goa, the historic city of the Portuguese eastern empire. The Lunch Club by KOKOindia offers a unique cultural experience beyond the beach, with a private tour of one of Goa's grand mansions, and authentic Indo-Portuguese lunch in a restored Palacio.

Shoppers and souvenir seekers will love the weekly flea and night markets in north Goa, where you can find everything from silk scarves and silver jewelry to sandals, sarongs, and spices. Remember to haggle - it's all part of the experience!
