If you’re looking for your next yoga vacation, you’ve probably noticed that there are two types you can choose from: yoga holidays and yoga retreats. But, how are they different?
You’ve fallen in love with yoga, you’ve spent some time on the mat and now you really want to become a yoga teacher. But how to choose between 200, 300 or 500 hours of training? What’s the difference between all these courses? Which one is right for you?
You’ve decided to go to Thailand for a yoga retreat; great choice! You’re bound to live an unforgettable experience in one of the top destinations. There’s still one question you may still have, though – where in Thailand will I spend my vacation?
Thailand and Bali are undoubtedly two of the top destinations for a yoga retreat. Both locations are a paradise for yogis with plenty of beach and jungle retreats and a variety of styles. So, which destination should you choose for your next (and possibly first) yoga holiday?
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.
