“You are not a drop in the ocean,
You are the entire ocean in a drop” – Rumi
In February, Goa is so beautiful. It is a perfect time for an Ocean Swim, just where the Yoga Resort is located. Yoga and Spa Village is located on the beautiful and unspoiled Morjim Beach in the very north of Goa. Set amidst abundant, tropical flora and fauna, it has been designed as a deeply nurturing space where you can relax your body, calm your mind, and awaken to your inner peace of being.
Relax and unwind in this beautiful Luxury Eco Resort with fabulous indian ocean view.
“Ancient Wisdom for Joyful Living”
The Ancient wisdom is about truly relaxing, and sensing the depth of your being as you observe and experience the outer world.
When you relax deeply, you realize your essential nature – your inner peace of being. When you perceive the outer world from this state of peace, you are not troubled or disturbed.
Joyful living then flows from the experience of being at ease and free of mental and physical tension.
This, in essence, is the heart and soul of Yoga…..to drop all tension, such that the depth of you is revealed.
This is the place, Begum taught and lived here for the first time in 2009. 100% recommended, piece of heaven..
“Goa is a home for me, where i belong to..” - Begum

The kitchen is on the open area by the beach, produces a mouth-watering array local Indian/fusion vegetarian dishes, whole wheat breads and pastries baked fresh daily, and juices from Goa’s own fruit trees.
Meals are freshly prepared using organic home-grown fruits and vegetables whenever possible, supplemented by produce from the local markets.
Chef Sai Sabnis is young, enthusiastic and in charge of the restaurant. After training in New York and working at a ‘green’ restaurant there Sabnis decided to return home and set up a restaurant with the same philosophy.
The chef believes in treating products with respect and allowing their true flavours to shine through rather than smother them with window dressing. As a result, some of the dishes seem almost bare but are beautiful. The fusion menu plays with the Indian love for large thali-style meals. Coconut water served straight from the coconut, dressings and chutneys made in house and vegetables and fish (no pork or beef is served here) that are fresh off the boat are some of the highlights that make the space endearing. It also helps that it is located on a stunning expanse of the beach.
