Yoga is a spiritual discipline that concentrates on achieving harmony between an individual’s mind and body. The practice of Yoga was believed to have originated in Northern India over 5,000 years ago. Yoga later became widely valued by the Indian nationalist movement as a way of defining pride and one’s identity. In India, one can find a plethora of yoga ashrams that impart yoga-related teachings and offer respite from worldly pursuits. Program highlights include:

  • Life at a Yoga ashram
  • Personal growth and self-development
  • Indian yoga philosophy and historic significance
