The best places in India to practice Yoga

Yoga helps you find peace. It takes you in another plane where you do not have to worry about the bills, your struggling marriage, your aching body and less than satisfactory career. It provides an escape, albeit for a short time, where you can gather yourself around and refocus. Of all the countries in the world, none brings yoga to the fore like India. This is why you should consider visiting its top Yoga places recommended below:

1. Tiruvannamalai

Located in a sprawling 24-acre temple campus, Tiruvannamalai is one of the greatest Saivite shrines in India. It is said to draw hundreds of thousands of pilgrims every full moon as its hill is considered to be a manifestation of Siva.

2. Rishikesh

The birthplace of yoga, Rishikesh is located on the banks of the Ganges River and is surrounded by hills on either of its sides. The good number of ashrams and yoga institutes in Rishikesh undoubtedly attracts knowledge, solace and peace seekers.

3. Haridwar

Haridwar, the “Gateway to God”, is considered one of the seven holiest places in India. It is a wise choice for Hindu pilgrims who take a dip in the holy water of the Ganges River, believed to wash away their sins. Haridwar is located at the foothills of the Himalayas in Uttarakhand.

4. Vrindavan

The Banke Bihari Temple, situated in the holy land of Vrindavan, is the most revered temple in the entire Braj region of northern India. Bankey Bihari Ji is worshiped and looked after as a child.

These destinations have been places of spiritual practice for many centuries. People from all over the world flock to India - for spiritual cleansing, meditation and some other parallel reasons.

Do not wait. Make a trip to India and give yourself a most deserved break. You only live once and as such, you should live and make merry when you still can!
