Yoga tourism in India has been gaining considerable interest and prominence during recent times. This is because of greater awareness of the multiple health benefits derived by the body and the mind through regular performance of some simple yoga exercises.
The missionary zeal of several Yoga gurus has also been instrumental in spreading the awareness of India’s wealth of Yogic discipline to all places around the world, especially to the West.
The discipline of Yoga originated in India during pre-Vedic times, about 4,000 years ago. It involves a high degree of physical, mental and spiritual discipline. Various types of Yoga practices and their benefits find several references in Vedic literature.
Ascetics of ancient India used to retire to remote mountains and practice the discipline of Yoga to its perfection.
