The yoga-yatra covers 75 heritage, tourist, archaeological sites, and landmark architectural sites across Gujarat. The sites were chosen to reflect the rich and vibrant cultural heritage of Gujarat. The yoga performances across the state have been documented in the form of short films to showcase the benefits of yoga in the backdrop of Gujarat’s unique culture, history, architectural marvels, natural eco-system, and a diverse geography.
