Our aquatic bodywork sessions in Agonda, Goa.
Coming for your session…
When arriving at the pool there is a waiting area surrounded by tropical plants where you can relax and wait for your appointment. There is free wifi and drinking water available. If you are with friends or family, they can wait for you there or enjoy a meal/drink at the Blue Planet cafe.
What to bring?
All you need to bring are clean swimming clothes, preferably one piece costume for women and close-fitting shorts for men. You won’t need a swimming cap and I like your hair to be loose with no hair bands. Please do not use sun screen protection, its hard to wash off and it pollutes the water significantly. We do not use Chlorine in the pool and the water is naturally sanitised by UV light and free radicals therefore we ask you to take extra care with showering before you enter the pool.
Provided for you:
Floating is a big part of the therapy. To help you relax fully and float comfortably we stock a full range of different sizes floats to support your body in the water, your therapist will select the best ones to use with you. If you are worried about water potentially going into your nose or ears, we also have nose clips and ear plugs.
We provide fresh clean towels and organic soap in the shower area. As an ex-hairdresser I am a fan of the no-poo method, so if you want to wash your hair afterwards, please bring your own shampoo and conditioner. There is a changing room where you can safely leave your belongings, use the solar heated shower and that’s where you’ll also find toilets.
The pool sits on the grounds of the Blue planet Wellness Resort which is located in a beautiful green valley, 1km behind the popular beach area of Agonda, in south Goa, India.
There is a restaurant available at the Blue Planet Cafe down the stairs from the pool where you can eat healthy vegan & organic meals, or just have a delicious smoothie or home made ice-cream. The prices start at $2.50.
It is also possible to stay on site at Blue Planet in the cool eco-huts from $40/night.
Yoga classes are available on request.
