What is so unique about yoga in India

stay your actual retreat. So rather than join a specific event over a period of time you can

reunification of worldly possessions).
This journey of letting go is not easy or quick and so it is broken down into four stages, this
is what the name ashram refers to. The Sadhus are known as the fourth Ashram. For the
spiritually seeking yogi the first stage makes up your initial pilgrimage to India and the
integration into a small community of like-minded individuals who wish to start this journey
together in an Ashram.

meditation, and with a new group of like-minded spiritual seeking souls, where you can
learn new techniques and go further and deeper still into your meditative practice.
