As you sit for Yoga and meditation near the pristine beaches of Goa you get transformed to a completely different world. As your external self-glides through the systematic grid of asanas, your inner being loses itself in the tranquility of the area.

Goa is a perfect melting pot of the Oriental and Occidental culture. Given the huge inflow of foreign tourists, it also forms the perfect platform to learn and practice yoga that not only strives to help you achieve external beauty, but also inner peace. The relaxed atmosphere, the pleasant weather, bright green tropical cover, the calm Arabian Sea, pretty beaches and the year-long moderate temperatures makes it the perfect place to practice sadhana and work towards attaining the ultimate moksha or sadhana.
