Swaying palm trees and silk flags fluttering in the sky, surrounded by paddy fields abundant with tropical bird life, Yogamagic is an oasis of peace. With swaying palm trees and silk flags fluttering in the sky, surrounded by paddy fields abundant with tropical bird-life, all these elements combine to rejuvenate mind, body, and spirit. The aim is to ease you back to nature without compromising on luxury and to show you that one can co-exist with his or her surroundings symbiotically.
You will be accommodated at luxurious Yogamagic Eco Retreat. Sleep close to the elements in luxury spacious en-suite tented eco-chic lodges. Colorful saris drape the elevated palm fringed roofs keeping the lodges cool, whilst a private veranda has sunset views and lean back chairs for daydreaming, star gazing, or moon bathing. Hot solar showers are just a short walk away from each tent and maid service daily with fresh flowers, dressing gowns and fresh towels when required.
The comfortable beds have big fluffy pillows, silk cushions, and bolsters with locally made iron furniture and solar lighting throughout.
A spacious dressing room has mud cobble walls, thatched roof, arched windows, and a sculpted sofa bed.
Hand bathe under the stars with fresh well water from clay urns and enjoy the experience of the impressive open air, smell-free eco-composting toilet which uses mango wood chips and effective micro-organisms to return everything back to nature.
The day starts early morning with chai or ground organic coffee delivered to your veranda, followed by morning yoga and meditation in the light airy yoga shala. After morning yoga, breakfast on as much fresh tropical fruit as you can eat, with creamy home-made buffalo curd, wild honey, and wholesome muesli. If you are still hungry, follow up with a cooked dish, eggs done in many ways or a local puri bhaji, juices, lassis and shakes, fresh organic coffee and teas.
Following a long leisurely breakfast, relax by the pool, explore the lush tropical gardens or treat yourself to a transformative Ayurvedic massage with highly recommended on-site masseur Vishnu. Alternatively explore further afield. The beach is just a five-minute taxi or rickshaw ride, or a 30-minute walk. Inland, the fertile hills and valleys are studded with colorful temples and grand churches depicting the rich and diverse cultural heritage. Adventuring is safe and simple and local people are both friendly and helpful.
In the late afternoon, you get together again for yoga asana, meditation, and mantra, before enjoying a mouth-watering dinner of exotic vegetarian east-meets-west thalis or banana leaf spreads bursting with flavors. Yoga will be taught twice every day except one day mid-retreat, which will be left free for you to explore the delights of Goa or relax in the resort.
