Taking time out: Yoga in Myanmar All Regions Adventure | 0 comments

Taking time out from the stresses of everyday life is part of what a vacation should be, and for many, traveling is often time for deep self-reflection and discovery.
Taking time out: Yoga in Myanmar

Myanmar (Burma) is indeed a place where peaceful Buddhist meditation is commonplace and meditation sanctuaries are widely available for those eager to find the deeper meaning in their lives.

However, if you’re not feeling up for the intensity of a Buddhist retreat, then why not try some yoga instead? After all yoga is a holistic form of exercise developing the mind simultaneously with the body, not unlike Buddhism itself.

You may want to combine a little yoga to compliment the demands of sightseeing or even take a full-on yoga retreat!

Yoga is a physical, mental and spiritual discipline that originated in ancient India. Since then it has become hugely popular throughout Asia and especially in countries of the West, probably because it is famous for its calming and spiritual effects.

Yoga retreats in Myanmar are admittedly oddly not as commonplace as they are in neighboring Thailand, but it’s developing quickly and there are still quite a few available.

Iyengar yoga retreats are often offered in the beautiful Inle Lake region. Inyengar yoga is a form of Hatha yoga and is widely practiced around the world. It focuses on precision, concentration and the quietening of the mind. Notably a lot of Hatha yoga classes take place at Inle Lake; the seemingly perfect location for tranquillity and focus

A number of expats and traveling teachers have also brought yoga and Pilates classes to most of the top hotels in the city of Yangon like Traders Hotel, as well as other expat hang-outs, such as the French Institute and the Marina Residence!

For more information on the Iyengar yoga retreat at Inle Lake, click here for more information and to reserve your spot!
