The beautiful and comfortable village holds space for up to 38 guests, an onsite kitchen where all the meals are lovingly prepared, two yoga shalas, two healing and rejuvenation spaces, a small library and a chill-out area. The jungle beach huts available at the village are beautifully inspired by Rajasthani designs and some come with an open-air bathroom (separate toilet/shower block for the female dorm). Bed linen, pillows, towels (not to be taken outside the village), mosquito nets and blankets (if you need them) are provided.
An indulgent, varied, and holistic experience of yoga and wellness awaits you at the village while you are also free to enjoy the beautiful surroundings of the peaceful Palolem Beach. This program is designed to help you reconnect with yourself while giving you enough time to schedule your day the way you want it. Come whenever and stay as long as you like.
During your stay, you will take part in daily classes, which are suitable for all levels, and learn fluid sequencing of postures, linked with the breath to revitalize and rejuvenate the body, mind, and spirit. Each morning flow will leave you energized for the day, while the afternoon classes are more gentle, allowing you to wind down. Both sessions are designed to help you develop your own personal practice so you can continue on your yoga journey after the retreat. During the retreat, you will also learn powerful and safe pranayama and meditation techniques. These promote a calm state of mind and vitality. Incorporating pranayama and meditation into your daily routine is truly transformative and this retreat will put you in the right mindset to continue on this journey.
The yoga classes are held in a beautiful yoga shala or if you feel like it, on the beach. Who doesn't like a light breeze of fresh ocean air on their skin, unwinding in the unhurried atmosphere of Palolem Beach and watching the sunset while balancing in your grounding tree pose? The yoga retreats are perfect for any level of practitioner as there is a yogi in everyone. The program is a balancing mix of body, mind, and soul transformation that helps you gain knowledge and experience. It's designed to help each student evolve on their own personal level, nurture your soul, take time out, and reconnect with your strength and wisdom.
The experienced teachers also offer modifications and more advanced postures. You are always welcome to take a break, rest, and just breath. During the course of this program, you will have the opportunity to be engaged in a wide range of activities. However, you can do exactly what you want and only what you want. You are of course free to do as little or as much as you feel like.
Active participation is encouraged as the program is designed to help you relax, reconnect, and be in a blissful state of joy. The schedule below is your overview of what a day will look like and you will have a full day to yourself, where you can choose to partake in any of the classes, workshops, or evening activities, or just be, explore, and breathe.
At any time, you are also welcome to take advantage of the many therapies to rejuvenate or detox. During the "living the life you love and loving the life you live" session, you and others will gather to open your heart and mind with a focus on living the life you love and loving the life you live through various spiritual activities such as lectures, interactive discussions, different types of meditation, and question-and-answer session.
