Among beautiful surroundings, feel the peacefulness and the spirit of the Mongolian nomadic culture. Discover the calming sand dunes, the mountains, the fresh water rivers. The high altitude and dry climate turn the blue sky into a window to the universe during late evenings. Mongolia is the perfect spot for practicing yoga and mindfulness.
Mongolian yoga and meditation are about closeness to nature and to practice living in rhythm with seasons and the landscapes. Their traditions include a belief in holy trees and that meditating with your back against such a tree connects you to the physical and spiritual worlds. Therefore, many Mongolians journey to trees in the mountains said to withhold special powers. Another tradition is to find posts or spots in the landscape that are especially good for meditation, it can be on a hill, amongst rocks or next to the river, whatever holds a good energy.
