Heal your soul at these 7 best yoga destinations around the world

June 17th, 2019

main

When crunched for time and space, we tend to always push our mind and body beyond threshold levels to perform and deliver, treating it almost like a machine! But we forget that even machines need a reboot and so does your body to keep up its well-being! Don’t let a skewed lifestyle overshadow your health quotient and get you browbeaten by lifestyle-related ailments!

It’s time to take a breather!

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to find a balance between modern lifestyle and health? The answer to do this right lies in Yoga. To bring out the quintessence of this ancient discipline and its significant role in well-being, International Yoga day is celebrated across the world every year on June 21st.

International Yoga day

The idea for having a day dedicated to Yoga was initiated by Mr. Narendra Modi, India’s Prime Minister. In view of the universal appeal for the discipline, the UN in the year 2014 (December 11th) declared 21st June (which happens to be the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere) to be observed for Yoga. On this day, Yoga doyens and students/aficionados from across the popular yoga destinations of the world congregate and celebrate the occasion by doing asanas, under the guidance of an Acharya (teacher).

Why Yoga?

Yoga, as an ancient Indian discipline is about mind-body alignment. To substantiate, Yoga (the word derived from the Sanskrit word “Yuga”) means union of one’s inner being with the larger existence (Nature).

This union brings out a sense of harmony with what is around whilst nourishing the body and mind in a fruitful, positive manner. Yoga delves around asanas (stretches) and breathing techniques that help to flex up the body and relax the mind. Thus, slowly and steadily, your body aligns to a well-conditioned mind and maintains an optimal health quotient. The many benefits of yoga are scientifically proven.

So, are you ready to stretch your tight schedules and embrace yoga for well-being? Take a deep breath, let your body sink into a realm where it tunes to the natural elements. For a bright start, embark on a journey to these amazing yoga destinations around the world.
