Yoga and Meditation in India

One of the traditional systems of healing the mind and body is Yoga. Literally meaning union, yoga seeks to unite the individual soul with the universal Soul or God, not through any religious rites but through a sustained effort to control one's mental and physical faculties. For most people yoga is a form of exercise that benefits much more in the longer run as compared to aerobics while many view yoga as a spiritual experience also.

Physically Yoga helps in cleansing the body of toxins, muscle toning, improving blood circulation, correct body posture and the like, at the intellectual level it helps the practitioner to transcend the un-realities of a worldly life and be in communion with the Supreme Being. We have exclusive Yoga and naturopathy tours under the guidance of experts at places like Rishikesh and Uttarkashi with special meditation classes in the Himalayas.
