Everything you need to know before traveling to India for a Yoga Teacher Training or Retreat
A trip to India to practice Yoga is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. However, although there is a great deal of tourist infrastructure in India, traveling there can often be a challenge both logistically and emotionally, at least if you’re not prepared for it.
India is a vast and incredibly complex country, and many of the customs and practices can vary widely from place to place. India ranges from ultra-modern cosmopolitan cities riding the cutting edge to mountain villages living just as they did a thousand years ago. In Delhi, it sometimes feels like you can walk through both of these within the same neighborhood.
It’s important to remember that India is still a developing country, with an enormous population that is also incredibly dense in some places. Things don’t always work as smoothly as they do in the west, but with a little patience and a little research, you can avoid some of the more common complaints.
