WHAT SHOULD YOU PACK FOR YOUR YOGA TEACHER TRAINING?
What should you leave behind, what you should pack and what to buy on location?
When signing up for a yoga teacher training in India, deciding what to pack and take with you on this life-changing journey is a question we know you are concern about. We will give you some ideas what should you pack to travel to India and what you need in our YTTC or Yoga retreat.
My biggest tip would be that you pack light, Really! You can buy almost everything you need here in some form or another. But, if you feel like packing your backpack full of stuff, here are my most important items:
In India, there is a very different culture as compared to the west and it is important to obey and respect this culture. Modesty is a priority to ensure that you are covered up at all times, think more about longer trousers, nothing too low cut. Dependent also what time or season you come. Check the climate before you come. In Dharamshala, it can be really cold sometimes in the morning and evening.
For your opening havan (fire ceremony) you will need white clothes. If you get no time to buy in your YTTC or retreat location, better you bring it with you.
I always carry a very light scarf for me to cover up in busy or religious areas or for visiting a temple.
For Goa and Gokarna you don’t need a towel to carry. But in Dharamshala bring a little towel if you reach late, otherwise, buy it near your place! There are many great Indian cotton towels, which are very cheap and lightweight.
However, when deciding what to pack from your wardrobe, I would suggest bringing only the essentials with you as within a matter of hours you will want to have purchased a pair of “Indian Pants” or a Kurta (shirt style long top with matching scarf). As far as yoga gear goes, you can pick up some fairly cheap baggies but I would recommend bringing two good pairs of leggings and supportive tops. High-end brands are not as easily available, as with the quality, so if you have a favourite style, bring that with you. But remember that in India, most washing is done by hand, so don’t pack anything uber-expensive as it may not survive the hand wash!
When practising yoga at our yoga school, your teacher will mostly advise the class how covered up you should be. The level of your clothing may not matter much inside the yoga hall if it’s really warm, but just remember to cover yourself properly before you leave the Yoga Shala respect towards the staff and locals that may be around.
Carrying a yoga mat can be a bit difficult especially when flying. That’s why we offer you in our YTTC your own yoga mat. Otherwise, in Dharamshala, Gokarna, and Goa, where yoga schools and retreats are in abundance, you can usually pick up a good yoga mat for a couple of Indian rupees. However, if you prefer to balance on your mat with a conscience and opt for the eco-friendly variety, I advise you bring one from home. There are many shops that sell wonderful yoga accessories such as mat bags (always buy a side opening one with a pocket) alongside straps and blocks.
Indian hospitality is very friendly; however, the standards are just not the same as the West, to ensure that you have an open mind and are up for the ride. Trust me, you will enjoy it and it will change you as a person. But do not arrive with any preconceptions; just be open to all new experiences.
When attaining a yoga teacher training you will meet many other people. Beginning with the staff at the school, your yoga teachers and your peers; all will have different expectations and experiences. Embrace them and learn from them.
