The Yoga movement is fast gaining pace at the global forum. Transcending and cutting across the continents, Yoga has begun to define the true meaning of wellbeing to millions of followers, also called as Urban Yogis. The conscientiousness to practice the art is not limited to the Saints and the Sages of India anymore. Yoga is now acquiring a vast spread popularity due to the miraculous transformations seen in those who make it their way of life. These individuals are now the official crusaders on their mission to proliferate Yoga into the cross sections of life, calling for a spiritual awakening.

Interestingly, what are being wide spread as a movement the world over, Yoga and Meditation are majorly rampant with the western society rather than the East. More and more westerners now vouch for the magical metamorphosis they see with the everyday practice. Yoga has healed, enhanced and uplifted the otherwise tumultuous lifestyle and thinking pattern. The Urban Yogis are in sync with the modern day life, yet attuning themselves to the calmness and balance sought with the help of Yogas, Mantras, Asanas and Meditation.
The Osho style of meditation is one such movement in India that has also reaped tremendous success with those seeking solace and calm in the chaos of worldly pleasures. The present day generation wants to be a part of the Yogic realm, while fulfilling the other inevitable material and emotional responsibilities.
The modern day Urban Yogis strike a perfect equilibrium in between the grounded responsibility and elevated spirituality. They imbibe Yoga as a crucial part of life while still in sync with the current day lifestyle. They have 9 to 5 jobs, domestic and financial commitments and they make way for those Yogic retreats every now and then. While some make it a habit to practice at home every day, there are others who attend active conferences, workshops and sometimes even coach the newcomers. They are the enlightened and liberated souls who wake up to seek more kindling every passing day, while staying connected with the rest of the world.
United States and Australia are two super continents that are fast cropping speed with the Yoga movement. There are yoga suites and institutes that not only teach Yoga, but also sell ethnic goods concurrent with the aroma of nature and earth. The teachers in these suites are called urban guides.
“Our urban guides are inspiring and talented, there is nothing mystical about us. We move a lot, leaving you feeling super fantastic. Our doors are wide open to anyone and everyone. We dare you to experience the true benefits that practicing Yoga can bring” says the head of Urban Yogi, a modern day Yoga Studio in Brisbane.
There are different Asanas planned and formulated for various lifestyle conditions, liberating one from the illnesses caused due to emotional and physical turmoil in the name of indiscipline and overeating.
There is no more myth surrounding the emerging clique. The Urban Yogis are real and here to stay.
