International Yoga Festival 2008:Rishikesh, India

The annual International Yoga Festival is organized jointly by the Uttarakhand Tourism and Parmarth Niketan Ashram in Rishikesh, India.

The Festival will take place from Saturday March 1'st to March 7'th, 2008.

Last year over 350 people from 30 countires travelled to Rishikesh, India to experience one of world's largest Yoga events.

During the one week Festival, you will have the opportunity to participate in over 60hours of Yoga classes from world-class Yoga teachers practising mutliple styles of Yoga including Kundalini Yoga, Power Vinyasa Yoga, Iyengar Yoga and Kriya Yoga.

The participants will also be blessed with the presence, satsang and divine words of revered saints and spiritual masters from within India, including H.H. Sri Shankaracharya Swami Divyanand Teerthji, H.H. Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji and H.H. Swami Veda Bharatiji.

Yoga is not merely for our bodies, but rather Yoga is for our bodies, minds, hearts and souls. Yoga literally means "Union" - union of breath with the body, of the mind with the muscles, and most importantly of the self with the divine. Yoga is not a religon. It does not require you to believe in a certain God or chant certain mantras.

Yoga is an ancient science which leads to health in the body, peace in the mind, joy in the heart, and liberation of the soul.

The International Yoga Festvial explores the eight limbs of Yoga and how they apply to our lives whether we consider ourselves Yoga students or not.

Please join us as we breathe in the sights and wonders of India and meet one another on this path of discovery and awakening.
