Bamboo Yoga Retreat’s beach bungalows are designed to blend beautifully with the breathtaking natural surroundings. Built on the fine white sand every season after the monsoon rains, using local organic materials, the bungalows are simply stylish, comfortable, private, and eco-friendly.

Located directly behind the shala and beachfront lounge and just steps from Patnem Beach, Bamboo’s boutique bungalows are designed to help you reconnect with nature. Whether watching the eagles soar overhead from the hammock on your balcony, or falling asleep to the sound of the waves, the normal stresses of life melt away and you will feel open to a more profound yoga practice.

Each bungalow at Bamboo Yoga Retreat has one double or two single beds with comfortable European style mattresses, good linens, and mosquito netting, set in a spacious airy room with plenty of room to hang your clothes and store your belongings.

Constructed to make use of the natural ventilation from the cooling sea breeze, the rooms also have ceiling fans for more tropical times of year. Attached bathrooms with western style toilets are open to the sky for the magical experience of showering under the stars.

All of the bungalows have beautiful natural panoramas views and sea view and you can choose between a beachfront sunset bungalow, an ocean mountain bungalow, or an ocean temple bungalow, which is quieter at night with its peaceful garden setting.

You can book a private room, share with a friend, or Bamboo Yoga Retreat can pair you with a lovely person of the same gender. Teachers will match yogis for room sharing on retreats.

Regular housekeeping is available, with fresh linens on request, although you are asked to bring your own towels for the beach. The bungalows can be locked when you go out, and free Wi-Fi is available if you need to stay connected. It is Bamboo Yoga Retreat’s aim that you feel safe, relaxed, and in harmony with nature to get the most out of your yoga holiday or yoga retreat in Goa.

Bamboo Yoga Retreat India Program

Typical day

Gathering in silence before breakfast, a wake up session of cleansing and stimulating breathing techniques will prepare you for an introduction to mindfulness practices, setting you up for the rest of the day.

A two-hour Dynamic Vinyasa Flow yoga practice is scheduled mid-morning in the shade of the seafront shala overlooking Patnem Beach. Synchronizing breath and movement, this will be offered in a step-by-step format, starting with a slow and easy warm-up and gradually building in intensity to incorporate more challenging poses as the week progresses.

You will work on building strength, stamina, and flexibility, so that you can progress at your own pace.

After a delicious lunch and a free afternoon to lounge on the beach, get a massage, or stroll to the shops, you will regroup for a gentler, more relaxing session of Yin and Restorative yoga. There will also be workshop inversions, hip or shoulder openers, or perhaps exploration of the guided relaxation of yoga Nidra, or some of the more esoteric and philosophical aspect of the practice. You will end the day’s session in time to marvel at yet another stunning sunset.

You will dine together at Bamboo in the evening although it’s also worth checking out one of the many inexpensive local eateries on your day off.
