What is it?
Yoga is an old discipline from India. It uses breathing techniques, exercise and meditation to improve health and happiness.
Yoga can be practiced anywhere and anyone can do it, which is why it has picked up a great following in recent years.
For something that is part meditation it is important and beneficial to conduct it in a peaceful place with no distractions. The open spaces and glorious views in Vaujany will have you thinking of nothing except blissfullness.
