Finding a lovely corner away from the treadmill of life at The Banyan Tree, GoaApril 19, 2019 10:30 am
A new review for YOAS from Queen of Retreats.
Sharon Walker reviews a magical week with Yoga on a Shoestring at the Banyan Tree eco-retreat in Goa and finds brilliant teachings with UK teacher Jess Horn, oodles of moreish veggie food, affordable local shopping and her grin.
Our hosts at the Banyan Tree, Annu and Chinu, are waiting for me in the reception when I arrive at the Banyan Tree, Yoga on a Shoestring’s venue for their Goa retreat. After an energy-sapping night flight I can barely stand, let alone talk, yet their megawatt smiles cut through the fog of mu jet-lag like bright rays of sunshine and I immediately have a good feeling about this retreat.
Annu leads me through a maze of pathways through the lush palm-filled garden to my grass-roofed eco-hut, my home for the next seven days. I have no idea how I’ll find my way back to the yoga shala, with just thirty minutes before the first class, I need to get organised.
‘Right,’ I think, ‘I’ll just have a very quick lie down.’ And promptly pass out.
