Luxury Goa Yoga, Move+Manifest Retreat
Join us for our Luxury Goa Yoga, MOVE+MANIFEST Retreat. Besides daily yoga classes, our MOVE+MANIFEST retreats offer a series of mindful workshops that will guide you in the exploration of creative self-expression in your life.
The retreat will honor the deeply spiritual nature of India, the birthplace of spirituality, by offering daily workshops that will help deepen your connection with your soul and your divine purpose.
We will have meaningful discussions and exercises on the topic of authentic self-expression and how to create a life aligned with this authenticity. We will have a week emphasizing self-care and slowing down, along with finding creative inspiration from the travel excursions and the beauty of the land.
The intention is to give you the supported space to recognize your inner guidance and develop a more honest, intimate relationship with yourself, thereby activating your creative potential.
Explore in and around South Goa, a land of swaying palms, white sands, sparkling waters, emerald green paddy fields and eternally clement weather.
Goa’s lanes still hark back to its colonial past, evident in the exquisite architecture, in the East-meets-West cuisine, which combines coconut milk and chilies with the flavours of Portugal, and in the soulful strains of Portugese fado that are occasionally still carried on the sea breeze.
Goa is the perfect place to dip your toe into the fascinating culture of India…it’s “India ‘lite,'” as we say, and it’s a wonderful experience.
Some of what to expect from the workshops:
- Energize & clarify your life vision
- Connect with others and this world on a deeper level
- Boost awareness of yourself and how you’re creating your life
- Change the stories and beliefs holding you back from having exactly what you want!
Our daily meditation and yoga classes on this luxury yoga retreat 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.
Healthful, vegetarian food is part of the luxury yoga 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!
Enjoy a week’s retreat at the southern end of Goa, not far from the airport, in the quiet beach setting where you 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 with rich cultural traditions to fashion an extraordinary experience in luxury destination travel.
High pitched roofs and wide verandahs combine with the subtle shades of teak, local red laterite stone, polished Kota stone and terrazzo flooring, open-sided walls and brass lanterns, which bestow a soft magical glow at night.
The interiors are designed to capture the Goan ethos through simple furniture with clean lines. Rooms and suites have been designed such that they flow out towards the natural environs.
The simple elegance of pale wood and cream surroundings are offset by latticed screens and luxury linens in shades of brown and russet. The public spaces also feature classic Goan touches, such as the art installation in the Edge Bar by contemporary Goan sculptor Subodh Kerkar.
Guests will not only enjoy the grounds of the hotels and the outdoor areas including a lovely pool, patio and lounges, but the retreat includes some amazing day-trips to the surrounding sites.
A guided day in and around Goa will lead guests through an introduction to this area, including the beaches, temples, and other main sites.
Other day trips and experiences will include a visit to one of the beautiful Portuguese manor houses in the area with a dinner, a day of learning and a tasting of various Indian wines, relaxing beach time, and a private river boat cruise.
The final full day entails a trip to a glorious spa, where guests can be pampered to their heart’s content. What better way to wrap up a week of yoga than a day of pure relaxation!

“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
