Goa. 63 miles of coastline along the Arabian Sea. India. You might think hippies, hedonism and all-night dance parties – I think yoga retreats, quaint beaches, lush jungle and concealed ancient temples. We’d both agree: magic.

The best way to get here is to fly into Mumbai and switch to a domestic airline. Apparently the hardest part of trip planning is deciding to go North or South. I say South, because it’s less developed (obviously). Either way, Palolem, Agonda and Patnem in the south, and Arambol, Mandrem and Anjuna in the north, are the hubs for yoga and Ayurveda retreats. This one in Patnem made The Guardian’s top 10 yoga retreats in the world. Although, this one on the Mandrem river in the North looks pretty epic as well.Can’t wait to visit.
