The Groove Yoga Festival is going to be in India this October, and what better place to celebrate movement, music and community than Goa. If there’s one festival you can go to to unwind, it’s here.

This amazing new festival actually combines yoga with a retreat experience, which basically means a very chill atmosphere and great music. The festival is coming to Goa this year in addition to its Ontario, Germany and Croatia editions. From October 1-6, the lush Ashiyana Centre on Mandrem beach will be transformed into a yoga retreat with a lineup of internationally acclaimed instructors, musicians and artists. There’s going to be yoga, along with the calming influence of music, just a few steps away from the ocean.


It’s not just this. Expect a lot of laid back fun at this festival with yoga classes, sound workshops, AcroYoga, bodywork, kirtan, concerts, beach parties and more. With a whole lot of opportunities for rest and rejuvenation, there isn’t much missing from the festival, which welcomes people of all ages to gather together in dynamic movement, music and creative play.


Other interesting events at the festival include a Darren Austin Hall Sacred Music Concert, a photoshoot with Hanna Witte you can sign up for, and even a specialised workshop called “Battle of the Beards”, which is basically a showcase of fancy yoga tricks and badass facial hair. So if you want a holistic yoga experience with a healthy dose of fun, make your way to Goa this October.

When: October 1-6
