Om Beach, Gokarna, India | October through April

Why yoga in Om Beach, Gokarna?

Shanti Yoga School - Location - Om Beach - Sunset

Beautiful tan sand. Warm, clear, blue water. Wild monkeys and dolphins. The most gorgeous sunsets on the horizon. This is paradise. This is Om Beach.

“OM” is the universal sound. It has significance to yoga. Om Beach is shaped like the sanskrit symbol for the word “OM”. It’s a short 10-minute tuk tuk drive from Gokarna, a spiritual city in the state of Karnataka, just south of Goa.

Yoga Retreats

Our yoga retreats work differently than teacher trainings. Trainings are set programs. They are intense, standardized programs. A yoga retreat is not – it’s vacation.

We price retreats by the day. The cost is $49 USD/night. This is significantly less than what you’ll spend at a resort. The cost includes a single room, 3 meals, and up to two yoga classes per day.

What’s more, if there’s a teacher training in progress during  your retreat you may attend any of their classes – no additional fee. This gives you the opportunity to learn even more about yoga. These classes are not mandatory – the choice is yours. This is your vacation.
