    "Safe trustworthy traditional instructors "

    A compassionate and safe environment, highly knowledgeable and authentic instructors, beautiful location on an uncrowded beach with walkable shopping, incredible food, and excellent customer service.

    "An unforgettable experience "

    The location is stunning, situated near the quieter end of Patnem beach, with simple clean huts and individual toilet/shower facilities. Food is varied and exceptionally good, with great care given to the food preparation so that no one gets tummy upset. I loved everything about my month of yoga teacher training at Lotus Oasis. The quality of the teaching was high and the teachers always ready to listen. Manav, Samita, Kunal, Mytree, Chidanand, Lara and Oliver, thank you for your care and guidance. I really hope to see you all again sometime.

    This has been an incredibly enjoyable month and I shall carry these memories warmly in my heart . The staff at Lotus Oasis including Sonu, Raghu and the team were so pleasant and helpful, nothing was too much for them.

    Having the warm Arabian ocean on our doorstep meant several swims daily for me. I shall really miss this also; such a lovely way to cool down after an intensive vinyasa class, followed by a huge buffet of freshly prepared food.

    My heart feels broken to have left there, having to say goodbye to the wonderful caring staff and the great friends in our group.

    I am SO pleased I chose Lotus Oasis for my yoga teacher training and can recommend it wholeheartedly.

    Thank you so much! Namaste. Paul Sands. from Ireland

    "Franziska"

    The team is very lovely and always smiling. The location is great (right on the beach) but if you do not like sand you might want to choose their other location in the jungle. The food is so good that you will be worried to roll home (which you will not as you will be doing lots of yoga). The Huts are quite basic but very nice.

    "One of the most magical time of my life"

    It was such a great time. The atmosphere that people create there changes you, the knowledge that our beautiful teachers give inspires you. I want to thank Manav, Samita, Shamboo, Kunal and Oliver for the unique impact each of them made in their own unique way. I learned so much about yoga and its depth and I will definitely go back for more. Thank you and Namaste!!🙏

    I loved everything. I went without knowing nothing about the place or someone that had been there, and I don't regret a thing. I did my ttc and it was amazing. The food, the staf, the teachers, everything was great. Very friendly and concerned. I came home a lot more richer.

    "Priceless. Even better than I could have imagined"

    Yoga teacher training from Indian instructors (owners) who are thoughtful, kind and fun. Delicious meals and super-helpful & friendly staff. Beachfront yoga classes. Guided meditation on the beach. Clean and comfortable beach huts with porch hammocks, ocean view and queen bed with mosquito net tents. Close to shops and restaurants. Not pretentious and completely authentic to the Indian culture. Boat trip to a private beach for yoga class. Field trip to spice farm. Plus Samita’s henna skills are unparalleled. Great price!! Will absolutely be back. Highly recommend for Yoga Alliance teacher certification. Small class sizes so tons of one on one help.

    Everything! Manav and Samita are very friendly and helpful. And their knowledge of yoga is impressive. Location just at the beach with two nice shalas. Great vegetarian food!

    When arriving after a crazy travel session from South-Africa ended uo in this little gem, where all was exactly how India should be, a little different then anyhting you know but always cool. The people very friendly and the place very relaxt.

    "Feeling well prepared to give Yoga classes back home!"

    I liked the intensity, physically and theoretically. We had to learn a lot in a short time, also tried to stick to the yogi lifestyle regarding Karma, nutrition and interaction. It was a real lesson requiring lots of effort - which was it definitely worth! Teachers are educating well, caring and helpful, also strickt which is necessary or no learning in this beautiful scenery at the beach would be possible. Loved the huts and the food, also that rooms were cleaned. Looking forward to spreading more of real Yogi Vibes in Berlin!

    "Wonderful experience!"

    I loved doing my TTC at Lotus! It was a very special month, and I loved every second of it. The whole team makes sure that everyone feels welcome and they create a great athmosphere. The whole TTC was very well structured, and I learned sooo much from the wonderful teachers in such a short time. I also loved the specials they did, such as Sunrise Yoga on a secluded beach after a boat-tour or a visit to an organic spicefarm with a tour, a great lunch and a Yoga-session there. It made the whole experience even more special.

    It was the best decision to book my TTC here and I would recommend it to anyone!

    It was the best time in my life and I am so thankful for everything what Manav and Samitha did. for US. They are the best

    "Lotus is THE place"

    Blissful.

    That's the best way to describe this place. Being on the sand, and always hearing the ocean is appealing in itself. However it was the kindness and compassion of all the staff that really make the place the special location that it is. I did my yoga teacher training here and I could not have asked for a better experience!

    The staff are amazing.

    The location is perfect.

    The vibe is so positive and pleasant.

    The food is incredible.

    I would highly recommend spending time at Lotus. ❤️

    "What a lovely experience!"

    The place was beautiful, charming in it’s simple way. We felt so close to nature-waking up with the jungle chorus, enjoying a glass of fresh fruit juice with feet buried in the sand, going to sleep with the crashing of the waves. The food was delicious and made with love; the instructors were professional with high standards, supportive and inspiring; all the staff were very friendly and helpful.

    "Amazing!!"

    I am so grateful for this wonderful experience. Everything about this retreat was organized and well planned. Upon arrival, I received a welcome package with book bag, and student manual. Class schedule was outlined immediately, and the organizers kept everything on task throughout the course. The instructors all had a wealth of information, and were able to answer all of my questions during and after classes. The food was amazing and the service staff were always eager and willing to help. The food and accommodations were probably my favorite part of the whole experience. The Riverside campus was beautiful!! I didn't see a single mosquito the entire time, and the sounds of the jungle really added to the morning meditation and pranayama experience!! I could go on and on and still have so many good things to say about Lotus Oasis Riverside Campus. I am blessed to have had the opportunity to learn from such great people.

    "Exceeded all expectations "

    I stayed at lotus oasis yoga for the retreat and I can say with great confidence that it was one of the best trips I’ve ever had. The location of the resort was ideal, located on the beautiful patnem beach, with plenty of amenities a short walk away. The bamboo huts were more than just basic and even had proper toilets/showers with comfortable beds. The best part was that the huts were less than a minute walk away from the beach. The food was so delicious and healthy with plenty to go around for everyone as well as fresh juice and teas. The people that worked there were so friendly, helpful and down to earth. The yoga classes were varied and challenging which is exactly what I was looking for. I felt so safe and well looked after. The retreat has done my body, mind and soul wonders. I only wish I could have stayed longer!

    "Thank you so much!"

    Thank you so much for the wonderful holiday and experience I've just had at Lotus. I loved everything about it! Manav and Samita are simply amazing and do their best to make your stay a memorable experience. The quality of the Yoga is excellent, the food is delicious and the location is perfect (right on the beach). I've had a wonderful time, met some very interesting and lovely people and relaxed a lot. I highly recommend this place and their awesome staff. Thank you for everything!

    "Such a beautiful journey"

    Our campus is actually not the Lotus but one on the riverbank (Drishti Yoga International). It was so quiet and peaceful. I love all the teachers at Drishti (Sam, Manav, Kunal, Shambu, Oliver and etc). What we learnt there was beyond my expectations. The focus is not just on asanas but also philosophy, arts of teaching, pranayama and meditation. If you are looking for a 200h TTC, I would highly recommend Drishti with Samita and Manav!

    "To infinity and beyond "

    Everything was perfect. I could not have asked for a better Yoga Teacher Training.

    It was located at a lovely secluded riverside property, but relatively close to the beaches and hustle and bustle of South Goa for the weekends.

    The schedule was packed and intensive but highly informative and fun. It caused us to grow so much in the short period of time. This was also enabled by the small group size of 11.

    The teachers were inspiring and kept us disciplined while keeping it fun and warm. It was cool how much we learned on yogic philosophy as it created a whole new dimension to yoga (for me).

    Finally, the food was delicious, vegetarian/vegan and healthy. We were often spoilt for choice with a buffet 3 times a day.

    I liked the different styles of yoga practised. Nice variety. Location was brilliant. Couldn’t recommend this place more ☺️

    "Great Stay!!!"

    I thoroughly enjoyed the quiet location, the vibe of the place and especially watching the Sun set each night. The yoga was always challenging and interesting which each class different from the last.

    One thing worth mentioning, which might affect a persons decision, is if you don't like dogs. I'm a dog lover so no issue for me but for those who do not enjoy dogs there are a number of dogs on the property which have been rescued by Manav and Sam.

    "Yoga paradise"

    The atmosphere is amazing and the location is perfect. The owners Manav and Samita, manager Tom and the whole staff are absolutely amazing. And not to forget Kundalini with Oliver. All classes are excellent even for an absolute beginner like me.

    I did 7 days of classes and it was so sad to leave. But I am definitely coming back. Sooner rather than later.

    "Totally utterly SUPERB!"

    I loved everything about Lotus Yoga. It's really laidback with the lovely little bamboo huts which are simple, comfortable, clean and have everything you need in them. Thee food was so good - really tasty varied and nutritious. And no-one ever gets ill at Lotus. The kitchen staff are great and nothing is too much trouble. There are 2 yoga shalas - one over looking the sea and the other set back slightly - both are great. The yoga teaching is outstanding. Manav and Sam are both brilliant teachers and very warm personalities. Krishna and Oli are also awesome. The classes are strong and varied and compliment each other. As hosts Lotus make you feel so at home and relaxed. It's a great easy going family atmosphere. Tom and Sunni were great as front of house type people. I had a brilliant time and would definitely go back. I LOVED it! Thank you Manav, Sam and all the team...xxx

    I absolutely loved my stay. The yoga classes were extremely good: high level but still open for any level. Every class was well explained and the instructors were very professional, yet open for feedback.

    The shacks were comfortable and I had everything I needed. The food tasted excellent and was always healthy.

    I was very satistified by this retreat!

    "The Perfect Beach Yoga Retreat!"

    Manav and Samita were excellent instructors; my practice has progressed & deepened so much further in these 10 days than in the last 4 years that I've been practicing! The location was also perfect right by the beach. They allowed flexibility in your schedule and was very accommodating. The team there aside from the instructors were also very kind and helpful. It was truly a great experience. Even the huts offered an authentic experience. Really worth it. I would do this again!

I loved every second, I will never forget my time in Lotus. Thank you so much. Patricia.

    It's a fantastic yoga retreat that I can only recommend other people to join. Manav and Samita are such nice and welcoming human beings and incredible good teachers. Their staff are helpful and service minded and also make you feel at home and very welcome. The place is literally situated on the beach with the sunset in front of the shala for the evening yoga session - simply perfect.

    i don't even know where to begin with what I liked, everything was fabulous. Samita and Manav are both not only fantastic yoga teachers, but also wonderfully welcoming and lovely people and nothing was too much trouble.

    The food was delicious and there was always a great variety for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Oh and the juices and smoothies were so fresh and tasty!

    we were so well looked after by everyone at the retreat and the whole vibe was just so easy going and relaxing, I only wish I could have stayed longer!

    Highly recommend the Lotus Oasis Beach Huts and will be definitely be booking again!

    It was the best thing which I done for my self in life! Samita & MAnav were amazing...it was a dream trip, starting with a place, yoga classes , people who are staying as a guest through the staff...thank you all, it was magical.

    Paula Lough

    from United Kingdom, March 2018

    The beach hut was simple but comfortable and had everything you need. There were lovely touches like the bowl of water that was refreshed every morning on your porch to wash your feet before entering to stop you traipsing sand all over your hut. I also like the hammock outside where I would sit and read or listen to my neighbour playing guitar.

    The food was very tasty and being vegan there was very little I couldn't eat. The staff were always mindful to tell me what was vegan friendly and what wasn't.

    Both instructors are very friendly and skilled at teaching yoga to different levels in the same class giving alternative postures or poses to the less experienced or flexible so that people didn't feel left out or inadequate.

    There was a great community spirit with everyone getting along.

    The location is amazing being at the south end of the beach which seems to be a bit quieter than the north end. You can hear the sounds of the Arabian Sea as you are drifting off to sleep.

    I also appreciated the airport transfers as this removed a lot of stress arriving and departing a country I had never been to and felt intimidated by.

    "Yoga paradise right on a beautiful and tranquil beach"

    The retreat is located in a great spot, right on the beautiful beach and towards the end of the beach where it is more quiet and you can relax. It was amazing being able to see the sunset whilst doing yoga and hearing the sound of the waves. Unfortunately I got sick and wasn't able to do the whole retreat. However, I appreciated Manav and Samita's support and flexibility with it.

    "Best yoga retreat I've been to"

    I loved my time at Lotus Oasis Yoga, it was like I was home with my family. The instructors and staff are amazing people, always willing to help and to make you feel at home. The location is amazing, right on the beach with beautiful sunsets every evening. The food is always different and always delicious. The room was comfy and had everything I needed. The yoga and instructors was just what I was looking for, I came out after each class feeling really good. Manav and Samita are really good teachers, they push you to get better and guide you on what to do really well. Basically for a yoga retreat in Goa, don't look any further. I will definitely be back :)

    "Thank you Samira and Manav"

    Manav and Samita have created a gorgeous place with a beautiful vibe. As yoga instructors they are both authentic and supportive in such a way that each of us present were able to grow stronger during our stays. The atmosphere is so laid back, and each person can thus tailor their experience to meet their needs. The accommodations are perfect for the place (beach huts - with individual bathrooms, great mosquito nets, only cold water showers), encouraging like-minded relaxed yoga travellers to visit. The vegetarian food is absolutely delicious and plentiful. Thanks so much for such a lovely stay!

    "Paradise "

    The atmosphere that Manav and Sammi created was one of tranquility and peace. The setting was beautiful, doing yoga at sunset was exceptional. There was a lovely area to relax out of the sun, where you really felt the softness of the sea breeze.

    They were excellent yogis, encouraging me to do what I thought was impossible. The food was next to none.

    "Most perfect resort"

    This being my first time as a solo traveller I found Lotus Oasis resort the most wonderful nurturing environment with everyone feeling that they have become part of a large caring family. Nothing is too much trouble as all the staff do their utmost to assist with anything that you require. The atmosphere is so calming and relaxed and Manav an Samita are the most excellent hosts making everyone feel so welcome. All the staff have the same ethos. The food is absolutely top rate with a wonderful varied selection of Indian vegetarian dishes. Although the accommodation is basic that is its total charm. I may have arrived on my own at the age of 59 but I was never alone as everyone , no matter what age , is like minded and so sociable. It was the most perfect 10 days with really challenging yoga overlooking the sea. The sound of the waves crashing is an added bonus. I could not fault my experience. Thank you Manav and Samita- truly a wonderful retreat.

    "A stay you won’t regret!"

    I spent 10 days at Lotus Oasis at the beginning of January, and I couldn’t have had a better time. The yoga teachers, Samita, Manav and Rama are experienced, kind and friendly with great teaching skills. Everyone who was working there made their best effort to make sure I had a great time.

    Sanju, Ravi and Santosh - the boys working in the restaurant - always welcomed us with a smile accompanied by an incredible service! It’s lovated ON the beach, so everything you do is to the sound of the ocean. The beach was clean (cleaned each morning) and I was offered to have my hut cleaned every day. It got a bit cool in the evening, so I recommend bringing a sweater or a cardigan. I will definitely return again, and again and again.

    "Great place to relax and get stronger"

    Yoga sessions were varied - mixture of strength work, hip openers, core - and a good length (90 mins) to allow meditation or breath work too.

    The yoga instructors are very competent, adjusting as and when necessary, and very helpful in showing different options for poses.

    The food is fantastic! And special served meals for Christmas and New Year...awesome!

    A variety of activities such as movie night and live music night make this a really friendly yoga retreat.

    "Book this place"

    After many hours searching the internet for different yoga reteats I decided on The Lotus Oasis Yoga retreat. It was the best decision I ever made.

    Manav and his wife Sam have created the most beautiful and welcoming place I have ever stayed.

    The location of the resort and how it is positioned on the beach are excellent.

    Every morning I would step from my bungalow straight onto the sand walk onto the beach and wake up in paradise.

    Morning and afternoon yoga lesson on this beach were fantastic. Manav and Sam are excellent teachers.

    The relaxed atmosphere and friendly guests made me feel at home straight away. I made many news friends who I will be seeing again.

    My Yoga improved more than I thought possible in such a short space of time.

    This was the best holiday I have ever had and will be returning here as soon as possible.

    "Far exceeded my high expectations!"

    Reading the other reviews before leaving for Oasis Lotus, I knew that I was in for a pretty great stay, but Sam, Manav and the team surprised me every day with their wonderful hospitality and I couldn't recommend the retreat enough! I am a beginner to yoga, and whilst the classes were challenging, there were plenty of variations I could try if it moved on to more advanced positions. It was particularly spectacular to finish the evening class facing the sun setting over the ocean.

    The retreat itself is just as beautiful as I could have hoped - comfortable and characterful, with places to sunbathe as well as escape the sun when the midday heat got intense. The upstairs area provided the perfect place to read in the ocean breeze and cool down. On to the food - among the best I have ever tasted, we were treated to a variety of different options every meal time, making it a rare occasion that the group didn't go up for second or even third helpings!

    Patnem beach itself is an excellent location for this kind of experience - it has a safe, quiet, untouched feel, whilst offering the option to visit bars and hear some live music - you could be as sociable or self-contained as you liked. Sam and Manav were always keen to help with any queries about areas to travel or how to shop, which made me feel more confident as a lone traveller to try checking out some of the neighbouring beaches. All in all I have a hard time imagining who wouldn't enjoy Oasis Lotus - a perfect retreat.

    The teachers are so good and shared so much knowledge with us. The quality of the training was very good. Nice and beautiful location.

    But don't expect a holiday, it's a hard training and you really have to study and practice a lot. But you really learn sooo much!

    "Großartige Erfahrung - Hohe Qualität des Unterrichts"

    Die Unterkunft ist ein Traum, sehr ruhig gelegen an einem wunderschönen Fluss. Die Qualität des Unterrichts (sowohl Praxis als auch Theorie) war exzellent! Ich habe nicht erwartet, dass ich in 4 Wochen so viel lernen würde. Ich bin sehr dankbar, für die positive Energie und dass wir immer ermutigt wurden, durchzuhalten. Das Essen, sowie die Hütten waren hervorragend, ich habe mich sehr wohl gefühlt. Ein großer Dank geht auch an Durga, der Tag und Nacht dafür gesorgt hat, dass es uns gut geht und wir uns wohl fühlen. Danke an den Koch für das hervorragende Essen und danke an Manav, Samita, Kunal und Shambhu, die ihr Wissen an uns weitergegeben haben. Ihr habt uns immer ein Lächeln ins Gesicht gezaubert und für gute Laune gesorgt. Vielen Dank für alles, eure Katrin aus der April Gruppe 2019 :)

    "The experience was much better them expected "

    I wret the reviews before booking the retreat and expected it to be nice.

    But it turned out to be amazing.

    The teachers are really caring and competent. They all do there best to share their knowledge with you.

    The Food was delicious. Ever day there was a buffet with vegan and vegetarian options that was absolutly tasty. The only Problem is that you tend to eat to much.

    The accomondation was also good and clean. Better than I thought.

    In my opinion a place to recommondate.

    I am very thankful for the hole experience I had there

    "Really valuable and recommendable experience! :) "

    What I valued the most is the place Manac and Samita created - an ernergy where you can only grow, learn and improve.

    I definitly learned a lot about yoga, but I also learned a lot about myself, which I am really grateful for!

    I was impressed by the teacher, such real people, full of compassion, patience and love for everyone.

    Each day they give you the realest smiles and help you improve yourself!

    It‘s hard to describe in words, it is really something you have to experience, I would definitly do it again and recommend it to everyone!

    "BEYOND EXPECTATIONS. UNBELIEVABLY AWESOME"

    Being all day in the sand, hearing the waves, watching stunning sunrises and sunsets, the company (people), the food, the amazing yoga classes and the atmosphere overall, made this place and this full experience a real unique one for me. It goes beyond expectations in every way. I encourage to spend few days in Lotus Oasis Yoga to anyone looking for good yoga lessons, for a relaxing disconnection, for a beautiful and humble stay in Goa and a for a boost of great energy, among others. In my case, the very first moment that I stood in this place I felt like I already did not want to leave and I am sure I will be back again as soon as possible. Thanks for everything Lotus Oasis Yoga Team :).

    "A trip to a parallel and wonderful dimension"

    I would definitely recommend Lotus Retreat, especially if you are looking to find a illuminating experience through Yoga that opens your heart, mind and soul. Its privileged natural environment is something you’ll hardly forget, and the resort is absolutely lovely: clean, basic, yet confortable with a remarkable laid back chill out area in which you can admire the ocean’s inmensity, spectacular sunsets, delighted by a gentle sea breeze.

    Lotus’ crew is so nice and smiling, while food is homemade, fresh and delicious.

    Teachers are absolutely great, all of them explain very well each asana, even the tougher ones, inspiring you to challenge yourself everyday a little bit more, always respecting your body and feelings. I feel I learnt so much. Manav and Samita create real magic in their classes, with them you’ll find yourself making yoga postures you wouldn’t ever imagine to. A special thanks goes to Oliver, our Kundalini teacher, who guided us trough an real emotional journey in each class, making me understand from my inside how much we are all connected in love.

    People getting there of all ages, cultures and different backgrounds merge in Lotus because of a shared sensibility towards themselves and the human being. I knew fantastic persons, laughed so much and learnt a lot of different cultures. Most of all I’m sure we settled very good bases of longlasting friendships.

    I have no words to thank everybody around me in this journey.

    Namaste and see you in December 2019!

    "One of the best experience in India"

    The place is just awesome, located on the beatiful and quiet beach of Patnem. The huts are basic but you don’t need more and are perfect for the retreat. Staff is very friendly and Sam and Manav are the best teachers that one can have. There is a paceful athmosphere that makes Lotus Oasis just the perfect place to relax. Food is also very go.

    I have just returned from a 10 day yoga retreat at Lotus Oasis Yoga and since this was my first yoga retreat I did not know what to expect or what I could gain from this experience. Now when I have returned from the retreat, I would strongly recommend everyone to visit Lotus Oasis Yoga for an amazing yoga and Goa experience as I feel completely re-energized, balanced and satisfied.

    The resort is situated on the beach and even from the private beach hut you can clearly hear the sounds of waves. The main building of the resort has a lovely roof top terrace overlooking the beach and the food is healthy and truly amazing. All staff members are very friendly and service minded. Upon our requests, they arranged a cooking class and a dolphin tour. The beach hut itself is simple and you cannot expect a luxurious standard. You can however expect a clean hut with a proper bed, fan and shower. You will not need more as you will spend most of the time on the yoga deck, the beach, doing a tour or in the restaurant.

    I had some experience of ashtanga yoga before going on the retreat and did not know what to expect from the mixture of ashtanga/vinyasa flows, hatha and yin yoga. I definitely did not expect to improve this dramatically in such a short amount of time. Firstly, all yoga classes are held on a yoga deck on the beach. Every morning starts with a physically challenging ashtanga/vinyasa flow. In the afternoon, a calmer hatha/yinyoga class with increased focus on alignment and meditation is held in the sunset. These classes complemented each other perfectly but there was no pressure to attend both. The instructors are truly amazing and inspirational. Even if the levels of experience in the groups are mixed, they manage to adjust the level in order to both challenge the most experienced yogis (we even had several instructors among the participants) and to meet the yogis who were complete beginners. During the week, I got plenty of individual tips and adjustments designed for my level and my body. Only in one week, my own practice has therefore improved significantly.

    I will gladly return to Lotus Oasis Yoga as soon as I have the opportunity. Thank you team Lotus for this wonderful experience!
