The reason yoga tours have become very popular today is because of social media. Famous yoga teachers like Laura Sykora, Kerri Verna and Brian Miller have millions of followers on Instagram. Tara Stiles and other famous yoga instructors also have Youtube videos with hundreds of thousands of views.
Since the internet, yoga has been more available to a lot of people, which is really a good thing, but don’t you feel like it has changed the way we view yoga? Yoga as we all know promote holistic and spiritual consciousness, but nowadays, it has become a bit pop culture and at some point superficial. Sometimes it seems to be more about getting the perfect pose and the perfect location to share on social media platforms and checking how many likes you have than connecting with unity.
Social media has many great benefits and is a positive tool to discover more about yoga. What’s important is that we don’t get sidetracked or distracted on our online behaviour so that we can keep yoga pure and real as it should be.
We here at the ACM group believe that everyone should go or participate in a yoga retreat. In fact, we encourage you to join as it’s a trip of a lifetime which can lead you to finding your balance, self-discovery and spiritual growth.
