Yoga & Trekking in the Himalayas

Yoga & Trekking in the Himalayas

Posted May 7th, 2009 under Climbing & Expeditions,

The Himalayas have been playing an important role in mankind’s journey to self realization from time immemorial. Its serene solitude and total seclusion creates an ideal environment for looking within. Yoga or union of the physical self with one’s soul is believed to give a new lease of life to an individual by freeing the mind and releasing the hidden energies that lies untapped. It is believed that a true ‘yogi’ (practitioner of yoga) is able to overcome the physical world and grasp the essence of divinity.

Yoga, unlike other forms of modern exercise, is not rigorous but relaxing. It is also just as effective. Dhyan (concentration) is needed to perfect the yogic postures called ‘asanas’. Practicing the ‘asanas’ is supposed to ensure mental, physical and spiritual harmony. Scientific researches have proven that yoga cures and prevents common as well as rare diseases.The different forms of yogaRaja Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Karma Yoga,  Jnana Yoga, Laya Yoga  and Mantra Yoga provide a complete system of self transformation and self realization.

With its lofty peaks and green and serene mountains and hills, Nepal is the perfect destination for yoga and meditation lovers. Introducing yoga into the trekking experience makes up for a richer experience as the physical and mental landscape of the body and mind are opened through daily meditation, yoga and trekking. Thus to rediscover oneself through yoga there will be no other place more tranquil and peaceful than the Himalayas.
