  • Yoga comes from India. The very best time to practice yoga is first thing in the morning before breakfast. Upon waking, empty the bowels, shower if you wish, then commence the day with your regime of yoga practices. Some light asanas can be practiced in the evening before sunset. But generally, always in the morning. We prefer to practise yoga in our homes or in green parks, not studios.
  • You can do a gala dinner in the private quarters of a real living palace where the heredity royal family still resides. Or something simpler like an authentic Indian blessing ceremony under the stars.
