Goa Yoga Holidays:
Lotus Yoga Retreat, Patnem Beach, South Goa
A beachfront yoga retreat! Overlook the beach while practicing your headstands. Offering 2 shalas, one sitting atop a hill with a mountain view and one offering sunsets over the beach, you can rest assure your yoga and meditation practice will deepen in this supportive environment. There are 2 yoga classes daily one at 8-9:30am and then again at sunset. Accommodations are lovely beach huts so you can fall asleep to the sound of the waves. Although rustic and basic the huts can be locked and are safe for solo female travellers. The draw of this retreat is that it’s a quiet place in Goa away from most of the hustle and bustle. The food is good and the lunch and a juice is included with the price of accommodation at these yoga holidays in Goa.
Reviews: Some the research I’ve done has stirred up a little disappointment with the price. Goa is known for being less expensive and some guests were disappointed to have to pay the full cost for “camping” in beach huts and having to use a shared bathroom. Although the bathrooms are clean.
