International Yoga Week, Rishikesh, Uttaranchal
Yoga literally means ‘union’ -- of the breath and body, the mind and muscles and , most importantly, a union of the self with the divine. To promote the ancient science of Yoga, a weeklong event is organised by the State Tourism Department in Rishikesh on the banks of River Ganga during February-March. Detailed lectures, demonstrations of various asanas by prominent exponents of Yoga are the major highlights of the Yoga Week.
