5 AWESOME YOGA DESTINATIONS IN EUROPE
Yoga originated in the foothills of the Himalayas in ancient India and is intertwined with
Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. It has now spread all over the world and is widely practiced by many. It is basically a discipline of spiritual, mental and physical practices which are incorporated to cleanse oneself of what is believed and limited to the above three religions and philosophies. Because of yoga’s exotic practices, it has caught the eye of the west and many new destinations are opening up around Europe to bring it closer to home.
