EAT.PRAY.MOVE Form & Focus Luxury Retreat Goa

EAT.PRAY.MOVE Form & Focus Luxury Retreat Goa, 17th – 23rd March

Join us for our EAT.PRAY.MOVE Luxury Form & Focus Retreat in Goa. We are so excited about another special collaboration with Julian Hyzler from EASEL&LENS to combine a look at creative focus with travel-journal creation classes throughout the week. Yoga and meditation classes will be held daily to prepare our bodies and minds to find the 'calm in the chaos' of the sensory-overload that is India – and then these creative projects will help us find new ways of seeing – both yoga and art working together to find FOCUS in the many layers of smells, sites, and sounds that abound in exotic Goa.

This creative retreat features “design curation” by Rupi Sood, Founder and Editor-in-Chief of J'AIPUR, an East-meets-West arts and culture journal. In addition to creating and curating online content for the magazine, she publishes bi-annual print editions which are sold in select shops around the world. Rupi was born in India, raised in Canada and now lives in Brooklyn, New York, with her husband, two children and a Jack Russell Terrier named Sherlock Holmes. She is an EAT.PRAY.MOVE multiple time past guest and now helps to plan exciting new lifestyle additions to our India retreats.

Yoga

Our daily meditation and yoga classes will relax, stimulate and help you grow your personal practice. Classes range from gentle, restorative yoga to more vigorous vinyasa and ashtanga sessions.

EAT.PRAY.MOVE founder Erin Lewis spent years studying various styles of yoga, before concentration on ashtanga in 2008. Erin combines powerful movements with a more anatomically-based vinyasa flow and restorative movement. Erin tailors each class to her student’s needs and our intimate retreat will be fully personalised. Depending on the weather, we will practice both indoors and outside in nature.

Cuisine

Healthful, vegetarian food is part of the retreat experience, including breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily either hosted at our hotel or out and about in town. Some even come served on a banana leaf! The cuisine is simple, delicious and Indian, using fresh ingredients from local markets. We will take our tastebuds further by exploring Indian cuisine in a cooking class where we'll learn a bit of how to bring the flavors of India back home with us!

Accommodation

To give guests a varied experience of Goa, we'll be staying at 2 locations throughout the week. We begin the retreat at the southern end of Goa, not far from the airport in the quiet, beach setting where guests can relax after their journey. We'll be guests at the award-winning luxury hotel Alila Diwa Goa. Set amid lush paddy fields, Alila Diwa Goa blends the best of contemporary Goan architecture – high pitched roofs, wide verandahs and tranquil courtyards – with rich cultural traditions to fashion an extraordinary experience in luxury destination travel.

Next we'll move north to stay at an award-winning private luxury boutique villa in Goa, Coco Shambhala (Voted in 2016 as “India's #1 Boutique Hotel”). Set in an amazing tropical garden with freeform jungle swimming pool and private jet plunge pools, these gorgeous villas are the finest in comfortable luxury. They have been designed in complete harmony with the landscape and cultural milieu giving guests a glorious retreat from the bustle of India. The architectural balance offers the sophisticated international traveller a place of privacy and nurture where a sense of balance can be found. Named by Conde Nast Traveller as one of the best villas in the world for small groups, where outstanding service is top.

What past guests have said

“I know all of us on that retreat are huge Erin fans and can’t sing the EAT.PRAY.MOVE praises loud enough. It is the most incredible way to travel. Erin has every detailed covered and it takes the stress out of international travel. I know I am getting an amazing travel experience at an incredible value. The accommodations are always world-class and the activities and adventures always provide cultural emersion with local experiences.” ~ Curt

“This was my first Yoga retreat (I attended with my girlfriend) and it was terrific. Erin has created a great concept and runs a great business. She said she loves to travel and she loves yoga and she has merged these passions into a very unique experience. The yoga was technically pure and diverse without the rigid atmosphere you might expect. The day trips were a mix of city, village, and nature environments. The accommodations and itinerary allowed us to make new friends. In fact, many of our new friends told us that “this is the way they travel” because of what Erin has put together. You eat well, have sessions of Yoga, see parts of the world you will never see again…all in one week!”. ~ Ethan – Georgia, USA
