Thinking of getting a certification as an instructor? If you’re going to learn how to teach yoga, why settle for any other place to do so than the yoga capital of the world?
Bali, the island where magic feels real and a yoga session takes you to a state of mind where you can meet the gods face to face – at least that’s my theory of why it’s known as The Island of the Gods.
If you haven’t been to Thailand, you’re definitely missing out. It’s one of the hottest travel destinations in the world and a top 5 for yoga vacations – simply a place any yogi should visit.
It might sound like a contradiction, but if you’re after the idea of living an authentic yoga experience, while also having a fun sophisticated time, Goa is India’s best place to visit. India’s mixture of Portuguese and Hindu traditions makes it a unique place where you will find the best of both cultures. It boasts an impressive architecture, a deep spiritual feeling and an easy-going light spirit characteristic of its people.
You can be certain that Goa offers something for all tastes. You can indulge on its many pristine beaches; or head to Calangute or Baga for some superb dining experiences; or you may grab a book and head down to Morjim or Agonda beaches for a truly relaxing break from life; or even if you’d like to explore the night life after your yoga retreat, Goa has some of the best parties in India!
The territory of Goa used to be part of the Portuguese State of India. This area was ruled by Portugal soon after Vasco da Gama anchored off Goa’s coast in 1498, up until 1961 when it was recovered by the Republic of India.
