Known as the land of gods and goddesses, Nepal holds many temples for Hindus and Buddhists. Ancient temples still stand in many corners of the towns of Kathmandu, Patan, and Bhaktapur.

Yoga as a Spiritual Discipline
Yoga, by definition, means to connect or unite. More than just a physical exercise, it cultivates your inner soul and enhances overall wellness. It improves your body strength, relieves stress, sharpens the mind, and calms the nervous system. For many people, yoga is practiced to enhance their inner spirituality. Yoga is a mental practice that goes deeper than just having a toned body and perfect abs. When you practice yoga, you become aware of the spirit or the energy within you. You cultivate a sense of mindfulness to that greater driving force, a motivation or logic behind why we think and do what we do.
It is known in the yoga culture that Shiva is the first guru or the first yogi. Shiva was happy no matter what state he was in – whether he was dancing or just sitting still. His first teaching to his wife and consort Parvathi was all about intimacy-- being graceful and radiant. Intimacy in yoga does not mean sexuality; it refers to conformity and acceptance. The second teaching was extended to the Sapta Rishis. It taught the fundamental processes of life – gaining mastery over the process of creation and detachment.
