The art of relaxation through yoga originates in India. If you decide to spend a yoga holiday in India, you will not only benefit from excellent yoga teachers, but also from other beneficial treatments, including Ayurveda, the ancient Indian art of healing, as well as meditation courses. Even the country speaks for itself. Surrounded by unique nature and peaceful temples, you can leave your everyday life far behind you and concentrate fully on your inner and outer well-being. If you ever feel the need for some entertainment, you can also visit one of the many impressive bazaars.

FAQ - Yoga
What is the difference between a yoga hotel and a yoga retreat?
In a yoga retreat the focus is on withdrawal and tranquility. You should be able to find peace and quiet and leave the daily routine behind you. For this reason, yoga retreats are usually more secluded than normal yoga hotels.
When is the best time to travel for a yoga holiday?
The summer months are usually less popular for yoga trips to Southern Asia as it gets quite hot and, in some parts, very humid. However, this is a great time to find some spectacular deals! However, yoga holidays are not dependent on the time of year or the weather, as it can be practiced both indoors and outside.
How long should a yoga holiday be?
Most of our yoga holiday offers are for 7 days and 2 weeks. However, these periods can be extended if desired. Some yoga hotels in Europe also offer yoga weekends or trial courses, usually to offer some insight into yoga, often with beginners in mind.
Is previous knowledge required for a yoga trip?
No, in co-operation with our travel experts you can design exactly the right yoga trip for your level of experience. We offer yoga holidays for professionals, but naturally also for beginners.
Can I also go on a yoga holiday with children?
In general it is possible to do a yoga trip with a child. However, we do not recommend it, because such a journey serves as a place for inner reflection and relaxation. Both aspects are usually not in line with a child's expectations of a holiday.
Do I have to come to all yoga classes on a yoga holiday?
No. It is possible that you will not be able to attend a yoga class. Simply notify the hotel of your absence.
What should I take with me on a yoga holiday?
It is important that you have enough sportswear with you for the yoga exercises. Make sure that you can move around in your yoga outfit easily and unhindered. You should also bring "normal" everyday clothes for possible excursions or social evenings. Most hotels provide yoga mats on site, however, feel free to bring your own!
