Yoga and meditation was the theme of this yoga trip. As it was winter in India, starting off south made sense to take advantage of the warm, sunny weather. Also, Southern India is less of a culture shock than Northern India. This was especially evident by the yoga teachers and participants who were mostly European or Australian.
The lush vegetation was soothing as I walked from my room to a yoga class.
An easy stroll through the village towards Mandrem Beach, reminding me that I am in India.
Goa, located on the western coast of the Arabian Sea, proved to be a perfect place to limber up my body as I practiced different types of yoga with different teachers and prepared for the trip ahead.
