Vitality, resilience and ease: beautiful beachfront yoga holiday with Laura Grace
White sands and crystal clear waters await you on this terrific yoga holiday. This glorious retreat combines daily instruction in Laura's soft and supportive approach to Ashtanga-style yoga with stylish accommodation on a private, picturesque peninsula in a hidden corner of this idyllic South Goa beach.
A brilliant retreat in a hidden idyll on arguably the best beach in Goa!
All the rest and relaxation of a proper holiday with the far-reaching benefits of a retreat. Patnem beach is hands down one of the most perfect and peaceful places to swim, stroll and soak up the sun in Goa and our hosts at Kala Bahia have the very best spot on the beach. It’s secluded peaceful and postcard picture-perfect, yet a stones throw from some of the best restaurants in South Goa - one of them, Umami, being onsite - and just a 5 minute tuk tuk from popular Palolem beach for anybody who wants to experience a little of South Goa's nightlife.
Yoga classes will take place in the fabulously situated thatched roof, sea view shala. It's common to see dolphins playing in the waters just in front of the shala in the morning and at sunset but we will try not to let that distract us from Laura's wonderful teaching.
Laura has a clear understanding of the bodily patterns that can lead to pain and injury. She is deeply in tune with what your body needs and when and will expertly guide you to use your own intuition to ensure you develop a practice that will sustain you. Suitable for complete beginners through to experienced yogis.
Classes will be held twice a day, morning and late afternoon, except for Friday 15th when there will be a full day off to give you the opportunity to explore further afield. You can join us on an optional excursion to the wonderful Tanshikar spice farm in the rainforest of the Westen Ghats, explore some of the other wonderful local beaches by tuk-tuk or just stay put and enjoy the view perhaps taking a sunset kayak out to dolphin-spot!
There is also plenty of time off between classes to explore the delights of South Goa. Each day after yoga we will have a big brunch together. 4 nights we will have a 3 course dinner at our gorgeous retreat restaurant, the other 3 nights we will take you for dinner at our favourite local restaurants. There are so many wonderful places to eat locally that we wouldn't want you to miss out and dinner - except for drinks) is included in the cost of your holiday. We love sharing our knowledge of the area and will make sure you get to experience the very best places to eat, shop and visit.
All the benefits of a retreat with all the fun and relaxation of a holiday...
