The first few things that come to mind when one mentions Goa are beaches, parties, fun, and frolic. But for the inner yogi, longing for an alignment of body, mind, and soul, a place as such would definitely not be on the list. And that’s where the common perception fails! Each year, Goa welcomes a delightful mix of seekers who either want to take their first dip into the vast ocean of yoga or are already on the path and want to delve deeper. There are a number of schools/institutions/centres, ready to welcome each aspirant with a wide range of options, suited to every need. Due to its growing popularity as a yoga destination, there is a huge yoga community here and that adds to the comfort. Also, the allure of being able to practise on the beach一with the gently flowing tides singing their tunes of serenity in the background一is something that is highly cherished too.
Since March — May is summer, followed by rains from June — August, the time when most of the yoga schools in Goa are buzzing with activity is November — March. So, if you plan to visit during that period, it is highly advisable that you book your classes in advance to avoid the last-moment rush.
