With its many beaches, its lush green cover and its relaxed pace of life, Goa is a uniquely calm and soothing location to partake in a yoga retreat. And so the state is home to several yoga retreat and holiday centers offering beginner to advanced level programs. We’ve rounded up a list of Goa’s four best yoga offerings.
This beachfront yoga resort on Cola Beach in South Goa offers yoga holidays, yoga teacher training programs and retreats. With the yoga holiday day package, you get two yoga classes per day with a range of interesting options for things to do during your free time. Little Cove also offers various scheduled 10-15 day themed yoga retreats led by qualified instructors throughout the year. With on-site Ayurvedic massages and treatments, organic vegetarian Indian meals and complimentary cooking classes, this resort has a lot more to offer than an outstanding yoga experience. They can even arrange dolphin-watching or fishing should you wish to do either.
