Aqua therapy

Every Sunday here in Goa there’s a pool party. The reggae soundtrack fills the day with easy vibes. It’s a relaxing way to welcome in the start of a new week.

Having spent a few hours grooving on the dancefloor I felt the call to enjoy the pool.

Sat just above the DJ booth, overlooking the crowd, the green lights glowing beneath the water made for an appealing situation.

In the water I found a freedom beyond that of the ground. The lightness of being and the ability to float, twist and wriggle with complete ease was a revelation.

I spent twenty minutes swooshing about like a jellyfish. The distant stars above twinkling beyond the colourfully lit coconut trees. It’s the most relaxed I’ve felt my body in a long while.

A fully rejuvenating experience.
