First of all, we would like to point out that in reality, there is no place that is more or less suitable for practicing Yoga. The practice of Yoga is an internal and personal exercise, so that each person has different needs. We are sure that there will be people whose favorite place is the dining room of their house, others prefer to practice on the beach and many others in the mountains. That is why those who read this article must forgive the audacity to choose certain places, we have simply made a subjective selection that, surely, is not liked by everyone. Therefore, we encourage you to leave your comments at the end of the post and to advise us to improve any aspect you think is convenient.
Best Yoga Destinations 2019: India
Let’s start with the obvious: the place where everything started. One of the most famous places for the practice of Yoga is Rishikesh, this we owe to the Beatles. The British band spent time during February 1968 at the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi ashram. Since then many people from all corners of the planet go there to take courses and train. As a curiosity, if you have a moment we invite you to listen to the song “Why don’t we do it in the road“, that Paul McCartney and John Lennon composed while watching what the monkeys did on the road when they were trapped in the chaotic Indian traffic.
Also, there are other parts in India equal or even more interesting to live the experience of Yoga in fullness. For example, the largest ashram is in Bihar (Sadaqat Ashram) and is an excellent choice for those who want to experience the reality of India. Other less drastic options are places like Goa and Kerala, which also enjoy great popularity.
