Purple Valley Yoga Centre is the perfect place for a yoga holiday on the western coast of India, in North Goa. It has the option of casual non-residential drop-in classes and a residential retreat. The center is best suited for beginners as well as for serious yoga students. The Yoga Centre has two locations in Goa
. The first location is the Purple Valley Drop-In Centre and the other is Purple Valley Retreat.
Purple Valley Drop-In Centre conducts yoga classes every day in a week, in a friendly environment. Besides Ashtanga Yoga, it teaches Hatha, Pranayama, Chi Gung (a genesis of Chinese martial arts) and meditation. The center also offers 3 or 4 drop-in classes. The classes are taken by experienced top-class international teachers. Yoga teacher training course is also offered here. Even though the accommodations are not offered directly, arrangements are made for it.
Just 3 km away from the drop-in center, the Purple Valley Retreat is at Assagao. A purpose-built ‘shala,’ which accommodates 40 students, at the bottom of a private valley (among teak trees, palms and banana trees) is a prime attraction here. This site is calm and best suited for meditation. Residential accommodation for 30 students is available.
