The best yoga retreats in India

Ask any hardcore traveler what destination left a deep imprint into their heart, and India has got to be one of the most mentioned countries. Rich in vibrant traditions, India can be experienced through its festivals, talking with the locals, and eating gastronomic feasts next to the cows along bustling streets. But as far as I’m concerned, one of the best ways to experience the country is through going to authentic yoga retreats in India.
