YOGA EXERCISE TO SALVATION : A warm welcome to the Yoga tour or even trek in Nepal.
Yoga, or union of the self with the cosmic soul, is believed to revitalize an individual along with the release of hidden energies as frees the mind. It is said that a true yogi (practitioner of yoga) is able to surmount the physical world and comprehend divinity. The art of yoga has been practiced in Nepal and India for centuries. Unlike other forms of exercise, especially the modern, it is not rigorous but relaxing while being just as effective. Dhyan (concentration) is the key to perfecting the yogic postures called Asanas. Mastering of the Asanas is supposed to ensure mental, physical, and spiritual harmony. Situated on the Himalayan foothills, Nepal is the perfect destination for yoga and meditation lovers. Yoga in Himalaya adds efficiency to its practice as Swami Vishnu-devananda emphasized the vast science of yoga into five simple principles as Proper Exercise, Proper Breathing, Proper Relaxation, Proper Diet, and Positive Thinking & Meditation. There will be no other place than the tranquility of the Himalayas for achieving the goals of yoga. Everyday walking gives you proper exercise. Over all, the presence of serene smiles on the peoples' faces and placid nature stimulate optimism in you.
