About me

Little Cove Yoga Holiday Retreat Goa was the dream of accomplished yogi and owner, Mahendra Pardeshi. In 2006, Pardeshi earned a Diploma in Ashtanga Yoga and Naturopathy from Ashirward Yoga & Naturopathic College in Nashik, Maharashtra. Following graduation, Pardeshi furthered his studies in yoga at Gaytri Dham Ashram in Rishikesh. After spending a year at the ashram, he spent six seasons teaching yoga and naturopathy in the Himalayan cities of Ladakh and Manali. 

In 2007, he opened up his own yoga studio, “Ashiward Yoga Studio” in the busy beach town of Palolem in Goa. Wanting to provide guests with a more tranquil yoga experience, it was in January 2012 that Pardeshi decided to open Ashtanga Yoga Goa School & Holiday Retreat in Cola Beach.

Voted Number 1 resort in Canocona on TripAdvisor.com, Little Cove Yoga Holiday Retreat & Holiday Retreat Goa has quickly become the premier beach yoga destination in South Goa. With a clean, quiet, picturesque beach, small staff and limited number of guests, we aim to offer an intimate, rejuvenating and memorable vacation experience that keeps our guests returning.

Pardeshi, resident yoga teacher and owner, is joined by Dharmesh, the ever-smiling in-house chef and go-to-man, Govinda, the man who wears many hats, and two pleasant house cleaning staff – Bharti and Shoba.

We welcome you to come and experience the magic of YOGA at the Little Cove Yoga Retreat.
