Set in the most picturesque calm setting, the Beach House – Goa’s Yoga Retreat captures the essence of yoga in its purest form.
Come and discover yoga as we take you on a journey to understanding this science as a complete and balanced approach to health and wellbeing. The word yoga originates from the Sanskrit word “yuj” which means to unite or integrate. Ancient yogis believed that in order for man to be in harmony with himself and his environment, he has to integrate the body, the mind and the spirit. For these three to be integrated his emotion, action and intelligence must be in balance.
The yogis formulated a way to achieve and maintain this balance and it is done through Asana, Pranayama and Meditation.

In yoga, the body is treated with care and respect. The Yoga retreat and its elements will leave you feeling peaceful and relaxed.

Asana & Pranayama - The Practice
Yogic physical exercises (asanas & pranayama) are designed to develop not only the body but also to broaden the mind and the spiritual capacities. Yoga retreat exercises focus on the health, strength and flexibility of the spine. The Asanas also have a balancing effect on each and every body system, internal organ and cell within the body.
Our yoga retreat has two physical sessions of ninety minutes each daily. The morning yoga tends to be more gentle and awakening with the practice of Jal Neti before each class. While the evening class is more intense and vigorous ending with relaxing meditation
Cleanse with Yoga & Detox
A well balanced practice of yoga is going to help with getting things moving in the body, and due to their work on the internal organs, can have a profound detoxing effect for the body.
Yogic breathing helps clear out carbon dioxide from the lung tissue, stimulates the organs of digestion and can, over time, retrain the diaphragm to move freely. The practise of yoga will also connect your mind with your body. Doing yoga helps purge toxic thoughts by teaching you to move your awareness away from the chaos of the mind and back to the present moment. That practice is not a basic component of other fitness pursuits.
