Yoga Retreat at Khola Beach, our idea of paradise
YOGA RETREAT IN MAGICAL INDIA
Oh how we love Khola Beach. During winter there is no other place we would rather be. We live on a deserted paradise beach, surrounded by the jungle, nestled amongst coconut palm trees, the perfect place to escape the winter and connect deep within. A place where time appears to stand still and everything is even more magical than you could imagine.
Goa is located in the south part of India, the motherland of yoga, and breathes calmness and serenity. A place where you can reflect and find your soul space within. Khola Beach also provides us with beautiful weather, breathtaking views and nourishing Ayurvedic food. A space for you to connect with your heart, body and soul through yoga, meditation and Ayurveda.
ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW
Hurray! You are only a breath away from booking an unforgettable retreat with the Soul Space in India. We long to practice mat to mat with you.
Our seven-day retreat in Khola Beach includes accommodation in charming beach bungalows, delicious and nourishing Ayurvedic meals (breakfast, lunch & dinner), 5-7 hours of instructor lead yoga and meditation classes per day.
The journey from Sweden to our paradise, which can be found in the southern part of Goa, takes approximately 11 hours. From the airport, it is only an hour away – notify us of your arrival time and we will send our driver to pick you up.
On the first day of the retreat we meet on the yogamat around 5 pm. We finish with celebration class on the evening the day before the day the retreat ends. The last morning we meet for breakfast before saying our goodbyes around 10 am.
We live together in beautiful two- or three person bungalows, situated right next to the beach, over-looking the vast Indian Ocean.
We recommend that you check your home insurance includes travel insurance – always good to know that help is available if misfortune were to occur.
A DAY WITH THE SOUL SPACE
MORNING MEDITATION IN SILENCE
We wake up to the sound of the crystal bowl and as the sun rises, we meet in silence for our first class and begin the day by arriving into our bodies. Thereafter, still in silence, we enjoy fresh tropical fruit and coconuts on the beach, overlooking the ocean… Mmm… Up until now we have been breathing together in silence – a beautiful and self-exploratory way to start the day.
FREE FLOW YOGA AND LET GO
After some free time in the sun it’s time to met on the mat again, this time for a flowing practice. A class where we have the Vinyasa Flow Yoga as a base, but we are letting go of performance, perfection, and the pursuit of attaining a future goal to instead completely arrive into our bodies – turning off the outside for a while. Just as the yoga session comes to an end, when the body and mind have landed in a magic state, you begin to notice the scent of an irresistible Ayurvedic lunch. After, fully satisfied, we relax under a palm tree, go for a swim or treat the body to a soothing Ayurvedic massage.
BREATHING IN THE SOUL SPACE
In the early afternoon, it is time for another exciting spiritual session which lasts until the sun sets, painting the sky with bright colors. After a refreshing shower we gather around the long table for a fantastic dinner under the stars, which will be loved by both your body and taste buds, before being cradled to sleep by the ocean waves.
