Retreat of the week
Chaya Yoga Retreats, Goa, India
Chaya’s founder Lucy Hill chooses a theme for each retreat, related to something that’s arisen in her personal practice – perhaps Opening the Heart, Creating Magic or Finding Your Voice. The basics are always the same (twice-daily yoga, delicious food, lots of treatment choice) with workshops varying according to the theme (for example, optional singing lessons with an opera singer for Finding Your Voice). Your base is Kaju Varo, an Award Winning eco-hotel in north Goa with lush gardens and plentiful trees – a far cry from India’s bustle. Some retreats are family-friendly.
