Awesome Reasons to Pick India

India is suitable for you if:

Why is India a popular yoga destination?

India is the birthplace of yoga and is considered as one of the most spiritual places on Earth. Each year, yoga enthusiasts from all over the world flock to India to experience yoga in all forms, be it within an ashram, a spiritual retreat in Rishikesh, or even a relaxing yoga retreat on the beaches of Goa.

What is the difference between a yoga school and a yoga ashram?

While both a yoga school and a yoga ashram offer yoga instructions, an ashram is typically linked to spirituality. At an ashram, you will find basic necessities and very little room for indulgences. You are expected to help out with day to day chores, and should do so with discipline.

What is an ashram experience?

Aside from your daily yoga and meditation practice, you follow the strict routine of the ashram, which include waking up early, practice breathing exercises, meditate, practice yoga asana and eat simple, vegetarian food. The living quarters are very basic and distractions (i.e. your phones and tablets are not allowed).

What yoga styles can I do in India?

Being the birthplace of yoga, you can practice virtually any yoga styles in India, with the most famous being Ashtanga yoga, Bikram yoga, Hatha yoga and Iyengar yoga.
