If you’re interested in yoga holidays India is an obvious place to go; after all, the mind and body workout originated there several thousands of years ago. India has hundreds of yoga retreats all over the country, and as some are aimed at beginners, it’s important to choose the right one. Consider the style of yoga offered by the different retreats, as well as the amount of instruction and the facility’s overall reputation. Expect accommodation to be somewhat basic, unless you pay more for something more luxurious, and your meals and of course instruction are included. It can be costly to fly to India and of course, you’ll have to reckon in the cost of airfare to your yoga holiday. And India is a huge country, with plenty to see in your spare time, and deciding between a jungle, mountain or coastal setting will also be a factor.
