Ask any hardcore traveller what destination left a deep imprint into their heart, and India has got to be one of the most mentioned countries. Rich of vibrant traditions, India can be experienced through its festivals, talking with the locals, and eating gastronomic feast next to the cows along bustling street. But as far as I’m concerned, one of the best ways to experience the country is through a yoga retreat India experience.
India being the birthplace of yoga, many yogis take a leave from their life and stay in India for months so they can perfect their practice. But with so many India yoga retreats to pick from, how can you choose which one is the best India retreat for you? For one thing, here’s an India packing list to get you started. And here are my top picks for the best yoga retreats India has to offer!
