Yoga is a long, tedious and arduous journey. It is refreshing, rejuvenating and rejoicing. Removing stress and adding effort results in Yoga. One has to be courageous, strong and interested in travelling the path of yoga. There are great trekking guidelines to yoga like Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra.

Trekking is an amazing activity to be in yoga. Trekking demands one to be in nature and be very light on possessions in person and in mind.

When the effort put in on trekking generates the necessary work/heat (Tapasya) and nature surrounds and cools (Isvara pranidhana) the body and mind the person as a whole is in union with nature (Yoga).
