Yoga’s origins are debated, but many historians say it may have begun nestled amid the Himalayas,  along with the historic Ganges in Rishikesh. For centuries, it has been considered a holy place, drawing wayward spiritualists hoping to connect with the land, philosophies and the spirit. This town of about 1,50,000 has gained fame as the place where the Beatles came in early 1968 and wrote much of “The Beatles” commonly known as “The White Album.”. Everyone from Uma Thurman to Jeremy Pivent to Bollywood stars to Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall has swung through town.
