North Goa

Jivana was built with yoga retreats in mind, and if a retreat or workshop is on at the time you stay then it’s definitely worth joining. Otherwise, an instructor can be called to give private tuition either on the roof terrace or verandah at the Temple House or in the huge, airy shala.

Get out and explore
If you’re not here for yoga then Jivana really is a base from which to wander round the Mandrem area, or explore further afield.

Heading out on foot, you can wind your way along lanes and across paddy fields, and if you’re lucky you will come across the huge banyan tree which carries spiritual significance for the locals.

Head on towards the buzz of Madhlamaj, the nearest village centre. This is very much a place where locals and long-staying westerners shop, there is nothing specifically for tourists, though try Parsekar’s store for money exchange at good rates. There are also a couple of ATMs here.

Heading further afield means using transport, the staff can help you hire a scooter or call you a car with one of their long-serving, trusted drivers. Ashwem beach is just 10 minutes away, Anjuna is about 25 minutes and Arambol 15 minutes; the latter being good for souvenirs in particular.

If you have time, make a day of it and drive north to Fort Tiracol and even on to Maharashtra and the sleepy countryside near the beautiful, secluded Paradise beach.

For more tourist goings-on, simply head south. After the gorgeous old, white church 20 minutes away at Siolim, head on to Anjuna and Vagator which have nice beaches. Further south is Old Goa, always worth a visit.
