Yoga Holidays 2015 :: Completed
Yoga Holidays were begun by Swami Vishnudevananda shortly after he arrived in the USA from India in 1957. Swamiji noticed that people were going on vacation and returning home exhausted. They were doing everything in excess! He started holidays where everyone did proper exercise and breathing, ate healthy vegetarian food, meditated, and lived simply. They felt rested, relaxed, and rejuvenated. Soon there were yoga holiday spots sprouting up all over the world.
YOGA HOLIDAYS are over for 2015. Check back for more in 2016.
