Little can prepare you for the overwhelming sights, sounds and smells that epitomise India: the dazzling colours, towering temples, the tantalising smell of spices and the hustle and bustle of one billion Indians going about their lives. India is a country that never stops to catch its breath. Except, that is, at Yogi-sthaan. The tranquil atmosphere provides the ultimate respite from the carnage outside, making you forget where you are completely – until a passing cow causes mayhem on the street outside by colliding with a vegetable cart.
Taking a yoga class in India is on many a tourist’s bucket list when travelling in the subcontinent. Yogi-sthaan (formerly the Yoga House) offers a number of different classes catering to varying abilities at reasonable prices. So whether you’re an intrepid beginner seeking escape from India’s chaos or a more experienced yogi looking for your daily fix, Yogi-sthaan has something you’ll love.
Alternatively, simply sit and enjoy the atmosphere, whiling away the hours in the serene garden cafe. Chat with friends or lose yourself in a book whilst sipping a cup of spicy masala chai and sampling their delicious menu of organic, locally sourced food.
Even the most experienced traveller’s tolerance levels can run low in this spectacular but exhausting country. So whether you’re staying for a week in one of their chic, minimalist bedrooms or just passing through for a class and a green juice, there is nowhere better to recharge your batteries and prepare yourself to re-enter the chaotic parallel universe that is India.
