Yoga is a huge part of Asian culture in general. I think it is only in the westernized world where it is viewed as something of an accessory. It is very strange.

I have been to Vietnam and I agree with everything that is written in this blog. I would like to add that yoga is not only a way of fighting stress but also a way of healing yourself from it. Even though you are in a beautiful place, it is always better to be in good shape.

@BritishBurton As a yoga enthusiast, I can say that practicing yoga in Vietnam is an experience like no other. The serene environment and the fresh air make it a perfect place to unwind and rejuvenate. As they say, Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self.

It is nuts to see how it has become some sort of “personality” in the west when it was meant to be a physical and spiritual healing practice.
