YOGA RETREAT GOA INDIA LOCATION
We will be staying in a peaceful sanctuary, with a large tropical garden, just a few steps away from the gorgeous sandy beach of Morjim in Goa. Specially designed to celebrate the colourful and mystical spirit of India, the beautiful & comfortable rooms will speak to all your senses, blending the elements of Goa’s Portuguese heritage and the stylish Rajastani elegance.
Our in-house restaurants dish out tasty & healthy organic fare complete with superfoods to help you detox your system. From enjoying our natural salt water swimming pool, sunbathing on the sandy Morjim beach or watching the sun set into the Arabian sea, a rooftop yoga shala looking out onto the gardens, you can experience it all.
The mouth-wateringly delicious meals are gourmet organic vegetarian, with vegan options. Our in-house restaurants dish out tasty & healthy organic fare complete with superfoods to help you detox your system.
The retreat will start with a “Puja” to bless the space and create an intention for the week.
Following the rhythm of the day morning yoga classes are generally more energetic. In the afternoons we will focus on alignment, asana lab, exploring postures in details, therapeutics, restorative, meditation and Yoga Nidra.
One full day or two half days off to explore this enchanted mother land.
You will recieve the full program of the week once you arrive. We’ll also leave enough space for adjustments in the schedule, just to be open for the unexpected and for you, to find enough room to simply relax. We might add a workshop or go for a guided tour, all depending on the weather conditions and overall group interest.
This yoga retreat is lead by Margherita Dal Pra, the founder of YogaM. Margherita is a very experienced yoga and meditation teacher with 14 years of teaching experience. Her classes are a synthesis of Anusara bio-mechanical principles of alignment, along with heart-centered themes and the lineage and depth of knowledge of Tantric Hatha energetics in the Para Yoga® style. Read more about her background here.
This yoga retreat is open to all ages and levels of fitness and experience. Every session will have attention to detail (alignment), awareness of breath (pranayama), openness to grace (attitude) and intelligent sequencing (vinyasa krama). The morning yoga classes will be more upbeat and energizing, and the afternoon classes more relaxed.
All sessions will be adapted to the group and modifications of the poses will be offered to cater for all participants and to ensure that everyone is receiving the benefits of the practice and individual attention.
There’s a lovely salt-water swimming pool, dotted with sun loungers, and far reaching countryside views. A perfect place to soak up the Indian sunshine between yoga classes and spend a lazy afternoon.
The beautiful beach of Morjin is also just a few steps away.

I have just come back from a Margherita’s retreat in Almeria and have only praise. The place was exceptional and the group – totally amazing. I arrived feeling closed, tight, tired and in a low state of mind. With Margherita’s practice, teachings and nurture, I now feel revived, strong, inspired and positive! She starts with the foundations of yoga slowly building up to more complex flows and restorative class – which worked tremendously. As well as the yoga, she provides advice on wellbeing and nutrition, leaving me with true intentions to take much better care of myself. It’s been a transformative experience and I can’t thank her enough for giving me a wonderful feeling.
Dear Margherita, thank you for the most important week of my life so far at your retreat! Something deep inside me has been changed and I came back to London a better person! With still so much more to learn, I look forward to continue learning with you. You are an incredible teacher and an inspiration and I felt a deep connection with you and our amazing yoga group, we were blessed and I love you!
