15 Apr How To Immerse Yourself In Yoga When You Travel To These 5 Places
Escape the daily grind, immersing yourself in daily yoga, and learning the wisdom of yogic philosophy while also seeing the world. Sounds pretty good right?
Yoga retreats are a great place to start to get immersed in the yogic philosophy. They’re not the only way to dig deep into yoga.
There are amazing destinations all around the world (not only Bali) where the yogic traditions’ roots run deep. Below we have listed five dream locations a yogi must visit and tick off their travel bucket list… #yogigoals
Five Yogi Must-Visit Destinations
1. Ubud, Bali
Yes, Eat, Pray, Love did put Bali on the world’s radar as one of the premier yoga spots – and, for a good reason. Rooted in Hindu spirituality, Ubud (which translates to ‘medicine’) has always been a hub for holistic healers. What’s more, is that Power Living hosts the Uncover & Transform Bali Yoga Retreat quarterly which is an immersion program, daily schedule includes meditation, yoga, workshops and inspiring community activities.
2. The Chopra Center, Carlsbad, California
A newbie compared to other destinations on this list. Deepak Chopra, co-founder and board-certified physician, helped create a modern enclave for this ancient practice by incorporating the Vedic science of mind, body, and spirit into contemporary integrative medicine and personal growth.
3. Rishikesh and the Ganges River Valley, India
Dubbed the “birthplace of yoga,” this spiritual town is nestled in the foothills of the Himalayan mountains along the sacred Ganges River in Northern India. Rishikesh is replete with ashrams and temples that pay homage to various gods and goddesses, as well as a plethora of yoga classes and workshops.
4. Hariharalaya, Cambodia
Named after the Cambodian interpretation of Harihara, a Hindu deity that bears attributes of gods Shiva and Vishnu, Hariharalaya dates back to 800–1000 AD as the Vedic capital of Cambodia. The little village, just 10 miles and a 30-minute tuk-tuk ride from Siem Reap, is also home to the Hariharalaya Retreat Centre.
5. The Rubin Museum of Art, New York City
This Museum is a pocket of serenity in New York City’s lively neighbourhood of Chelsea. Unlike other art spaces in the city, this six-floor museum is not just home to some of the most prestigious Himalayan art exhibitions; it’s a hub for world-renowned scholars and yogic thinkers who teach seminars and workshops that tie contemporary fields like neuroscience and technology to the ancient practice of yoga and meditation.
