Nowadays, instead of booking a traditional vacation, many people are choosing to book yoga teacher training retreats. Not everyone who books a yoga retreat has the desire to become a yoga teacher however the packages offered in select destinations are incredibly economical, so it becomes appealing to individuals who simply wish to deepen their practices, relax, and improve overall health and wellness while on holiday.
Why attend a yoga retreat in India? There are so many reasons why you should enjoy a yoga retreat in India that perhaps the question should be, why NOT.
India is the birth place of Yoga and Yoga has been embraced as both a lifestyle and a daily practice by the people for over 5000 years. The real Yoga is comprised of more than just physical postures. It is a prescribed system of living that will set an individual along a spiritual path towards peace, happiness, and self-realization. Sadly, much of the spiritual component of the practice is missing in the west or perhaps is not explored as readily as physical asana has been, so the ultimate beauty of Yoga is becoming diluted. But those who come to India have the opportunity to learn about all the limbs of yoga, directly from the source, in the country where it originated, while relaxing and rejuvenating their mind, body and soul.
