9 Days Rejuvenating Bhakti Yoga Retreat in Goa, India

The Surf Club Goa, Kepker Vado, Dando Rd, Arambol, Goa 403524, 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 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.
