Lord Krishna in Bhagavad Gita states that “Yoga is a heightened sensitivity and awareness of all life around us and within us, and an outpour of love in reciprocation with life’s wonder and beauty.”

For as long as Yoga was introduced to the humankind, it has been vouched that when practiced amidst like-minded yogis and in contact with the nature, the benefits and realization of the discipline becomes heightened than anywhere or anyplace else. The core purpose of dedicating one’s life to the discipline of yoga is to find the oneness of us with the universe around us. Nothing can be more realistically termed as universe than the nature surrounding us – the earth, the greenery, the water, the sky, the sun, moon and stars.
