It is funny but when you read blogs you come across people who decide to take a yoga vacation and pick places like Analusia and Bali. Then they write about a wonderful time at the beach and excursions and massages they enjoyed. This is not a true yoga vacation. It stands to reason that if you wish to truly learn yoga and change your life, you should head to India, the country that gave yoga to the world. It is just one reason. There are other equally convincing reasons to choose yoga retreat in India for your vacation.
It is pure yoga
If the purpose is yoga then focus purely on it by picking yoga vacation india based yoga retreats offer. You may spend only 10 days but the major part is spent in yoga ashrams, offering decent accommodation and food.
Learn from yoga gurus the way it has been taught since ancient times
You undergo yoga training for the major part of the day and you learn under yoga gurus who have been carrying on an ancient tradition going back thousands of years. You learn not only about poses but also how to do it, pranayama or science of breathing, the spiritual aspect and all interconnected parts of yoga. 10 days yoga vacation in India in the foothills of the Himalayas sets you up for life.
