    "Me and my boyfriend enjoyed our time we spent in Earth yoga village very much. The yoga classes were excellent let by very experienced and knowledgeable teachers. We did an intro to Ayurveda course which was very informative and really fun. The leader of the course was as well amazing and with a lot of experience and knowledge. The environment could not be better, really quiet with nice and airy huts. I would definitely recommend Earth Yoga Village and would love to visit the place again. Thank you all for the great time we had."

    "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!"
