I very much enjoyed my introduction to yoga and still feel warm for having stretched, breathed and opened-up. That’ll hopefully continue back in the UK with classes and a daily practise supplementing the cardio’ exercises.
As I was opening my chakras, monkeys gazed in inquisitively, which was a bit off-putting, but sharing space with these cheeky, clever creatures, and cows, is just another thing to love about the place.
Tomorrow I’ll return to Delhi. There’s now time to stretch the journey over 2, 70 mile legs, a more appealing and ‘age appropriate’ schedule.
Rishikesh has been an oasis, a break from the road. I’ve very much enjoyed relaxing here, chatting over soup and strudel, and being peaceful. It’s felt like a retreat.
