Bamboo Yoga, Goa, India
With so much choice in India – the birthplace of yoga – it’s hard to know where to start. Bamboo Yoga, at the southern end of Patnem beach in Goa, is a true find, with brilliant teachers, comfortable huts and tasty organic, vegetarian food.
Guests can tailor-make yoga holidays, dropping into classes (resident teachers run two 90-minute classes a day) and choosing to eat in or at the restaurants and bars on the beach, or come on an all-inclusive week-long retreat run by a visiting teacher (Jeff Phenix of London’s Triyoga is here from 10-17 February, for example). With several yoga shalas (studios) there’s plenty of space, and the location by the sea is perfect.
