In 2010 I was travelling alone for few months trough North India, I had a one way ticket and no particular destination.
Whilst in Bihar someone suggested me to travel north to Haridwar and Rishikesh and so I did.
Arriving in Haridwar was one of the scariest things I have ever experienced, back in 2010 Haridwar was hosting Kumbh Mela, the biggest and busiest religious celebration on the planet, literally millions gather together every 12 years to pray and bath in mother Ganga.
What a coincidence of me being there!
It was overwhelming and I couldn’t even walk as I was pushed in every direction from this humongous wave of humans.
Many of them were covered in ashes and naked, long dreadlocks, chanting in direction of this people fulled river.
I remember reaching Rishikesh at 4am and not knowing where to sleep, randomly picked a place to sleep and knock at their door.
The next day i learned that @akhanda_yoga was not a hostel but an ashram and that there, you could practice yoga and meditation.
I ended up staying a month... What a beautiful journey it has been, what was your first yoga experience?
