Yoga is an integral part of Indian Culture and traditional lifestyle since the time unknown, and now this science of living has become popular across the globe because of its effectiveness and holistic healing of mind, body and spirit. With some great influence on western countries, yoga has become a part of lifestyle for many people who believe that it makes a significant change on body, mind and the spirit. North India is famous among international travellers for yoga and wellness tourism and Rishikesh is one of the most famous Yoga Destination in India.
It was the late 60’s when Beatles rocked up the ashram of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi after their inclination towards meditation and spirituality. They accepted Maharishi Mahesh Yogi as their guru and spent good time in Rishikesh learning yoga and meditation to find the inner peace of the soul. World Media was after the world famous band of that era, which actually brought Rishikesh- India, in the lime light across the globe. They revealed their experience of finding peace among the beautiful mountains, miles away from the daily mess of metros and the joy of seeking the inner self, which is only possible with yoga and meditation. Now thousands of foreigners visit Rishikesh for yoga and other recreational activities. But apart from Rishikesh, there are many other great destinations where one can visit and learn yoga peacefully. Yoga Holidays are becoming very popular among Indian travelers as well, as now there are many options available across the country where world class yoga sessions are offered.
Yoga has a very close association with nature and it is believed that it takes you closer to nature. Yoga when practiced in a natural outset offers a nourishing and nurturing environment which helps body, mind and spirit to revitalize and rejuvenate with fresh air and peace. The more you are harmonized with nature, the more you can enjoy the state of good health, inner peace and longevity.
Yoga studios or ashrams do their best create an ambience with soft lights, aroma and music, but striking the mood is perhaps just an attempt to evoke a natural setting – the outdoors. Why to settle down for an artificially created environment when you can have it naturally? Doing yoga in a beautiful natural environment adds a different dimension to one’s practice. Yoga means “union” and when you do it amidst nature, it seems like a union of humanity with nature, where the universe is truly felt.
There are some great places to do yoga amidst natural setting like Rishikesh, Pauri and McLeod Ganj, but Rishikesh has become crowded these days with increasing popularity. V Resorts offer yoga holidays in India, in two of its luxury resorts located in Rajaji National Park – V Resorts Rajaji and Pauri, Uttarakhand – V Resorts Pauri. If you do not appreciate being a part of regular crowd in Rishikesh Ashrams and want a peaceful atmosphere to enjoy some days in leisure and recreational activities, V Resorts has some great options to offer.
At V Resorts Pauri, you can have a wonderful experience of doing morning yoga sessions and enjoy the beauty of snow peaks and taste the local foods while at V Resorts Rajaji, you can experience the fun of doing yoga amidst wilderness.
