7 Days Bhakti Yoga Retreat in Goa, India

Jivana Goa, Mandrem, Goa 403527, India

Bhakti Yoga Retreat in Goa

Seeing the sunrise from your porch overlooking the sea, you get ready for your morning meditation. Savoring the sweet smell of incense wafting on the morning breeze you enter the shala to the melodic sound of live mantra music. Its soothing notes transport you into a deep space of serenity. Throughout the guided yoga and meditation practices, you feel your body and mind revel at this opportunity to let go and return to the rhythm of your true nature.

Later that day, relaxing on the white sandy beach, you find yourself smiling with delight as you sip on a fresh coconut, reflecting on the highlights of the past few days. And those highlights include: sunrise meditating with live mantra singing, visiting the local temples, swimming in the warm Arabian sea, luxuriating in Ayurvedic massage treatments, and dining on scrumptious cuisine.

If you’re ready to embrace practices that create peace, harmony and bring joy to your body, mind, and soul - you’ve found your perfect retreat!

Even if you have never done yoga before, this is a great opportunity to get used to non-demanding yoga practice at your own pace. Everyone can delve into the consciousness of her or his body, breathing and being. Partner yoga and mantra meditation that brings about a deep state of inner peace, followed by a Yoga Nidra (profound relaxation). Every day is dedicated to one of the chakras and we go deep into the transformational quality of each of them.
