Before showing you the places, we figured it would be useful to give you a brief introduction on yoga—this is obviously for those who do not know much about the discipline.
WHAT IS YOGA?
Yoga is a physical, mental, and spiritual practice that denotes a variety of schools, practices and goals in Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism.
Yoga can be dated back to pre-Vedic Indian traditions. The first traces of yoga practice are around the sixth and fifth centuries BCE.
Like it was mentioned above, yoga is more than a physical exercise, it has a meditative and spiritual core. All those who practice it feel more relaxed, in peace with themselves and distressed after a session.
Now, try think about the perks of practicing yoga and combine those with a wonderful environment. Doesn’t this sound like paradise?
