"Me and three of my friends dropped in for a morning session with yoga teacher Anand. It is the first time I have ever tried yoga. Even though the group were at different level Anand made sure that we should push our body within our physical limits. I am very stiff and struggled in the beginning with the positions but Anand was a great teacher and helped me through the session so I managed to get most of it by the end of the class. Me and my friends all agreed we had a good time and felt comfortable throughout the class even though two of us were beginners. I hear they have a lot of longer courses as well, unfortunately we did not have the time to try it out. But when in Goa you have to try yoga and I recommend this place!"
