"Incredible Experience "

-Beautiful Location

-Excellent yoga and mediation classes

-Staff was very helpful

-Great food

-Cool teachers and interns

-Loved the variety of different types of meditations and yoga. Something different every day (Kundalini, Yoga Nidra, etc) Kunal and Manav did a great job of covering so many topics in such little time. I would have stayed another month if I could!

"An uplifting and rejuvenating week on the beach in Goa! "

What a great week. The location of the retreat is sublime- right at the end of the beach and seconds from the water. The huts were simple and basic but had everything I needed. The yoga was incredible- so happy to have been able to practice with such knowledgeable teachers from India. And the food... simply divine! The location didn’t provide much opportunity for sight seeing, however it didn’t bother me as I was just in it for the yoga and the beach. So if you’re after sun, sea and brilliant practitioners, then this is the place for you!

"Incredible experience "

This place is faultless- everything was perfect from the delicious vegetarian buffet each day to the classes that taught me so much. The teachers surpassed expectations and helped us improve so much mentally and physically in a matter of days. The beach-front location is perfect and makes the whole experience a real getaway to remember. I honestly couldn’t recommend this place more.

"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

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.

"Lotus is THE place"


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. ❤️

"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!!🙏

"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.

I loved the ambience of Lotus Oasis and felt like I floated around for 10 days!

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!

"Fantastic experience "

Everything was good, the availability of the teachers. Anything you needed they were there. The location, simply amazing. Highly recommended

"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.

"Super experience, I got so much more than expected"

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 :)

"Amazing "

Everything was so wonderful. It is like a paradise. The food is amazing. I did the yoga retreat last week. The best experience with yoga ever. All teachers are so friendly, helpful and experienced. Mahi, thank you for your private lesson. I want to thank Oliver for our conversation. Taking your nice words home. You are a beautiful person. I hope to be able to take lessons with you someday. Thank you all !

"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!
