As a yogi in India - your 6 dream locations

Reading time: 4 minutes

India, the birthplace of yoga, magically attracts inquisitive yogis from around the world year after year. But with the diverse states, choosing a suitable yoga retreat is not that easy. We want to make your choice easier for you and here we present the 6 most dreamy regions for yogis in breathtaking India.

Uttarakhand - in the green north

Mountains, lakes and rivers as far as the eye can see. Uttarakhand welcomes its guests in the north west of Nepal with an incomparable, breathtaking natural landscape. So it's no wonder that the Hindus consider their beloved land to be 'Dev Bhoomi' - land of the gods. Large rivers such as the Ganges have their origin here. The green beauty is not only a place of curious natural spectacles, but also known as a center for yoga and Ayurveda. Haridwar and Rishikesh are particularly known as spiritual centers. Rishikesh is even dubbed the world capital of yoga. Here you will find peace: breathe pure air away from the city, enjoy the view of the green and be very close to yourself!

Maharashtra - between nature and city life

The state is best known beyond the borders of India thanks to its capital Mumbai. It also contributes to the general status: Maharashtra is considered to be well developed and offers good conditions for a life between nature and the city. From a geographical point of view, the state is located in the middle of India, but also has a stretch of coast on the Arabian Sea. Depending on the location, you will find great contrasts in Maharashtra: paradisiacal, palm-fringed beaches, majestic mountains and pulsating big cities belong to this part of India. In addition to the diversity of the landscape, there is another attraction for yogis. Pune, a city with a rich cultural past and numerous attractions, is home to B.K.S. Iyengar, the modern exponent of Hatha Yoga.

Goa - India with Portuguese influence

The colonial era has left its mark in some places. This is also the case in Goa, a former Portuguese colony. Today you can walk on the paths of the Portuguese, especially when it comes to nutritional issues. Once in Goa, you shouldn't miss the combination of Indian and Portuguese cuisine. In addition to the national cuisine, the size of the state is also noteworthy. Goa is the smallest state in India and therefore much easier to travel to within one vacation. Take your time for the beauty of this state! The famous, almost gold shimmering sandy beaches on the coast of the Arabian Sea are recommended. Many yoga retreats start the day with sun salutations on the beach - paradise couldn't be more beautiful!

Karnataka - magnificent sights

A little further south, India comes up trumps with another highlight. Karnataka is a state peppered with impressive testimonies from days gone by. Ancient ruins as well as magnificent temples and palaces are hidden between evergreen mountain landscapes, which are waiting to be discovered. The highlight is Mysore, the former capital of the kingdom of the same name. The center of Karnataka is now Bangalore. Apart from the lively capital, the state is rather quiet. The best way to experience this calm is in the morning: Meditate on a mountain and enjoy the heavenly calm of the morning, watch the sun rise and let your gaze wander over the slowly awakening coffee plantations. A feeling for eternity.

Tamil Nadu - mountains and sea

This southern state impresses with its varied landscape. Majestic mountain and hill landscapes go hand in hand with flatter plains traversed by streams. The focal point of Tamil Nadu is the coastal capital Chennai. Overall, the coast measures an impressive length of 1076 meters and is home to numerous fine sandy beaches. Sri Lanka is only separated by the Palkstraße and therefore a stone's throw away. Yogis who are planning a longer vacation can easily experience one part in India and one in Sri Lanka.

Kerala - in the land of coconut palms

Finally, we would like to introduce the state of Kerala as a yoga domicile. Kerala, which advertises with the slogan "God’s Own Country", is particularly known for its heavenly beaches. Kovalam and Varkale are particularly noteworthy here. But the Periyar National Park and the backwaters with their waterways, lakes and lagoons also attract numerous visitors. Everyone will find their idyll in the large state. This also applies to yogis, who often supplement their yoga retreat with Ayurvedic treatments.

As you can see, India has a diverse range to offer from north to south. Choose the right yoga travel destination from any of these and spend an unforgettable vacation in impressive India! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us - we wish you a pleasant break and lots of new energy!
