Yoga holidays to India are a popular choice of activity trip these days, but packages can be expensive and restrictive.
So why not plan your yoga holiday yourself? You’ll save money and be able to arrange your India trip around the places YOU want to visit.
Design your own itinerary and enjoy a more informal and fun yoga holiday.
