Retreat location

This yoga teacher training will take place near Palolem Beach, Canacona, South Goa, India. Goa is a land of white sands, bright sun, sparkling waters, and wavering palm trees. The most beautiful state of India offers a perfect environment for yoga practitioners and this yoga center is just 1.5 kilometers away from the white sand and pristine beach.

Tropical weather and multicultural atmosphere have attracted travelers from all around the world to this pearl bounded by the Arabian Sea in Western India. Goa was originally a Portuguese colony before 1961. You can still feel some of the Portuguese influence in the architectural heritage and in Goan cuisine.

The venue will be located in a quiet setting amidst nature free from distractions and noise, but very close for you to enjoy a beautiful swim and soak up the sun on the beach. There are many restaurants and shops at Palolem Beach as well.
