Yoga is a mind and body practice, combining physical postures, breathing techniques, and meditation or relaxation. Yoga is thought to bring the mind, body and spirit together and is often praised for its health and relaxation benefits. And to practice yoga on safari, immersing yourself in such a pristine environment, helps you to free your mind amongst the most natural of landscapes allowing for an even deeper connection with the wilderness.
