You will stay at the cottages at the retreat center located in quiet environment. Each cottage has a lot of privacy, is protected from the sun by coconut palm trees, and is surrounded by dense greenery of lush, exotic gardens.

Each cottage features a private porch with a seating area and an en-suite bathroom with a hot shower. The entire retreat location is surrounded by coconut trees, banana plants, and cashew trees.

The beach is only 10 minutes by bicycle. You can enjoy beautiful walks on the white sandy beaches. You will be able to enjoy breathtaking sunrises as well as beautiful sunsets every evening.


What to expect

You will practice yoga, meditation, and pranayama classes and enjoy being with a fine group of like-minded people in a beautiful place. You will also have time to just relax in the sun, swim in the warm sea, and enjoy various excursions in tune with the chakra of the day!

Tara, with her 40+ years of experience in India, will show you the treasures of Goa, including nice beaches and the freshwater lake, local markets, surprising shopping streets, and much more!

At sunset you will often sing mantras on the beach together and you can also enjoy some beautiful Indian dance and music performances.

The place where the retreat takes place is outside the busy areas of Goa, with an unspoiled quiet beach nearby, swaying palm trees, blue sky, warm sea, and sunshine. Yes, this retreat will be a very special journey that will enrich your life forever!

The yoga

During this 10-day yoga retreat, you will be gently initiated into an in-depth practice consisting of yoga postures, meditation, and pranayama (yoga breathing). It does not matter whether you are a beginner or an advanced student. Because it is a small group, Tara will have plenty of time to give you personal instructions.

Everyone can delve into the consciousness of her or his body, breathing and being. Even if you have never done yoga before, this is a great opportunity to get used to a non-demanding yoga practice at your own pace.

The morning classes are in a more dynamic Yang yoga style, while you will end the day with more soothing Yin yoga sessions. Every day is dedicated to one of the chakras so that you can go deep into the transformational quality of each of them. In this way, you develop skills to work with these seven energy gates on healing, more vitality, and pleasure.

There is a beautiful yoga shala, an oasis designed to transform and restore the soul. The perfect place to relax and come back to your (true) self!
