About This Event
Our yoga retreat offers you the chance to rediscover the spark within you and re-energize your body, mind and spirit. An indulgent, varied and holistic experience of yoga and wellness await you at our village while you are free to also enjoy the beautiful surroundings of our peaceful Palolem Beach. The programme is designed to help you reconnect with yourself whilst giving you enough time to schedule your day the way you want it. Come whenever and stay as long as you like (minimum 7 nights).
Daily classes, suitable for all levels, fluid sequencing of postures, linked with breath revitalise and rejuvenate body, mind and spirit. Each morning flow will leave you energized for the day while our afternoon classes are more gentle allowing you to wind down. Both sessions are designed to help you develop your own personal practice in order for you to continue on your yoga journey after the retreat. During the retreat you will also learn powerful and safe pranayama and meditation techniques. These promote a calm state of mind and vitality. Incorporating pranayama and meditation into your daily routine is truly transformational and our inspiring retreat will leave you with the right mindset to continue on this journey.
The yoga classes are held in our beautiful yoga shala or, if we feel wild, on the beach. Because who doesn't like a light breeze of fresh ocean air on their skin, unwinding in the unhurried atmosphere of Palolem Beach and watching the sunset while balancing in your grounding tree pose.
Our yoga retreats are perfect for any level of practitioner as we believe that there is a yogi in everyone. The programme is a balancing mix of body, mind and soul transformation that helps you gain knowledge and experience. It's designed to help each student evolve on their own personal level. It's to nurture your soul, take time out and reconnect with your strength and wisdom. Our experienced teachers offer modifications as well as more advanced postures. And you are always welcome to take a break, rest and just breathe.
During the course of this programme you will have the opportunity to be engaged in a wide range of activities. However, as we know you're coming to do exactly what you want and only what you want, you are of course free to do as little or as much as you feel like. We do encourage participation as the programme is designed to help you relax, reconnect and be in a blissful state of joy. The schedule below is your overview of what a day will look like plus you will have a full day to yourself where you can choose to part-take in any of our many classes, workshops or evening activities (see drop-in page) or just be, explore and breathe. At any time you are also welcome to take advantage of our many therapies to rejuvenate or detox. More details can be found on our website.

Set among lush green jungle within a short walk to a paradise beach, you will find Earth Yoga Village to be extremely peaceful and the ideal place to relax. It is your refuge from a busy life and is conveniently located in South Goa on the beautiful beach of Palolem, which is known for its blissful vibes, laid back people, and stunning nature.
Palolem Beach is largely unspoiled and is inhabited by both local fishermen and by foreign tourists who live in shacks along the shore or in the main village. The location offers an ideal place to explore the stunning beaches, beautiful local villages, and surrounding nature outside of your retreat schedule. Earth Yoga Village staff members are strongly engaged in making the village more eco-friendly.
The lodge runs partly on solar power and Earth Yoga Village staff members work hard on adding further eco-friendly measures. Connection with nature is vital and they strive towards that connection in every day life and with every action.
