Yoga is all the rage, at home and abroad. Bangalore is no stranger to the trend with yoga classes mushrooming in every locality. But not always do practitioners get the chance to breathe in fresh air amidst lush greenery to soothe the body and mind as they go about their stretches.
The Yoga Yatra may just be the opportunity to practise asanas in the environment they should be. Slated to take place at the end of August, the yoga festival is an initiative by two schools, Total Yoga and a1000 Yoga to bring together Bangalore's 'yogi' community.
"We wanted to create a platform where yogis of Bangalore could meet each other and a community sense is instilled and strengthened. Hence we thought of organising a Yoga Yatra. The event is free and all are welcome to join in," said Manish Pole, director of Total Yoga.
With yoga catching up as a key to a healthy lifestyle, yoga outdoors has become the trend, especially for pranayama and suryanamaskar.
Yoga-in-the-Park, a precursor to the event in August, was held in Cubbon Park, on Saturday, June 22. Forty people participated in the early morning session.
