New year getaway


Back to all retreats

Start 2020 with a fresh breath and clear vision – we’re going to Goa! Warm weather and serene surrounds, it’s truly an idyllic place for a yoga getaway.


Located in a quiet village, just behind Arambol beach in north Goa, you’ll be surrounded by organic gardens where you can see the produce used to make the delicious meals served to you. Watch the monkeys and enjoy the wildlife that lives peacefully by your side during your stay.

The yoga

Led by Stretch founder Carl Faure & co-taught by Calli Popham, you can expect to dive deep in each practice. Inspired by animal flow, natural movement and Scaravelli yoga, you'll be taken through your paces and allowed to fully embody each movement, whether this be on your hands, your feet or somewhere in between. Those of you who have holidayed with these two before, know they're the perfect combination to allow your mind & body to sing!

The perfect complement to this movement is Inspirational Breathing. Nicola Price will be holding a foundation level breathing course alongside this retreat, if you wish to join her please see details on her website: https://www.inspirationalbreathing.com/training/

Other things to do

Enjoy the many treatments available such as Chinese and Tibetan medicine, acupuncture, Ayurveda, massage and more. Spend lazy days with a book around the pool or hop on a motorbike and explore the beautiful beaches of Goa.

Food and drink

Enjoy two delicious meals a day, made with organic, home-grown produce and a whole lotta love. In between mealtimes, the communal kitchen is available for use, with teas and fruit available.

The rooms

With a gorgeous view to the lush tropical gardens, the rooms are decorated in traditional Goan style with ornate furnishings and plenty of space to stretch.



An escapee from the high-flying world of club music, Stretch founder Carl first found yoga as a way of healing the excesses of “too much fun”. Carl believes that creating community and harnessing the support it gives is key to the transformational process, and he’ll bring this philosophy to classes every day.


Calli has practised yoga for over 20 years. Her energy and enthusiasm for yoga is contagious – she’s passionate, playful and nurturing in her style and is known for her strong, fluid, intelligently sequenced, creative flows that weave powerful intention.
