Are you dying to live a true yoga experience in the place where it all started but you've been putting it off because of your budget? We’ve got good news for you then, as there are tons of options in India, where you don’t have to break the bank!

From the beautiful beaches of Goa to the holy town of Rishikesh, India is the place par excellence to learn and practice yoga. But it’s also the place with the highest amount of affordable yoga retreats worldwide.

Most yoga retreats in India are unlike any other place. Here you’ll get to stay in authentic ashrams or humble accommodations either in the city or in the countryside. But you shouldn’t see this as something negative; sure, you might not have the most luxurious of settings, but in these austere conditions, you’ll find it easier to avoid distractions and plunge into your most spiritual version.

That said, you’ll be surprised by how much you can get with a few dollars per night. So, forget about that piggy bank and book one of these yoga retreats with a cost per night of 22 USD or less!

Note: BookYogaRetreats offers a flexible cancellation policy. Should you not be able to travel as scheduled, we’d be happy to help you to alter your booking with the same organizer or with a different organizer.
