The popular International Yoga Festival is back in Rishikesh and will be held from March 1 to 7, 2020. The festival will be connecting yogis from across the globe and different cultures in a one-world yogic family. The International Yoga Festival will be organized in Rishikesh, which is believed as a birthplace of yoga. Also, the sacred Indian town set on the banks of the Ganges has been home to ancient yogis and gurus.
The fest is held every year and has been growing since its inception, encompassing more and more people. Last year, the festival was joined by more than 2000 participants from nearly 100 countries.
This year, the festival in Rishikesh will celebrate the age-old Indian practise of Yoga, with conversations and discussions about the science of fitness and wellness. The practice of Yoga was primarily developed to achieve harmony of body, mind and soul.
