Take advantage of a trip to India to introduce you to yoga and maybe completely change your lifestyle! This spiritual discipline has been practiced in India for millennia. This tradition is far from recent fashion in the West. In India, everyone does yoga. He would help free his mind and body by balancing them together to find harmony. Closely connected to meditation, yoga is generally made up of a part of breathing exercises (pranayamas) and a series of postures (asanas). Also practiced for therapeutic purposes, yoga can only do you good. In Rishikesh, many centers and ashrams teach yoga, from the beginner level to the most advanced techniques to become yoga teachers.
Much like yoga, meditation is closely related to Indian philosophy, Hinduism, and Buddhism. This art of living promotes self-control and calming the mind. There are different methods of meditation that are often practiced in ashrams. One of the oldest techniques is called Vipassana. It respects the word of the Buddha as closely as possible and simply proposes to observe reality as it is without any guru or spiritual fantasy. Many centres in India offer courses of 3 to 10 days to introduce you to this technique by giving you the best conditions: that is to say accommodation and food. The centers are open to everyone, of all nationalities, of all religions with a donation at the end of your retreat.
Originally from South India, Ayurveda is a traditional medicine using different combinations of plants to synchronize vital energies. Inscribed in the Vedas (sacred books) this science is based on the principle of the balance of the natural needs of man. If the balance is respected then the individual is in good health, mainly thanks to his diet and his lifestyle. Ayurvedic products therefore use plants in their care and can be applied in the form of massages. Ayurvedic centers often located in luxury hotels are of great quality. The best cures can be found in the Kerala region.
