Half a century after the Beatles meditated in Rishikesh, in the foothills of the Indian Himalayas, a new wave of spirituality tourists have arrived for this week’s International Yoga Festival.
Some 300 million people now practise yoga around the world, according to the International Yoga Federation. Since it became popular in the West in the 1980s it has moved beyond mere activity; in popular language use, it has become a “lifestyle” – on which Americans spent $16 billion in 2016. The yoga market is growing by 7% a year, while novelty yoga proliferates: hot yoga, beer yoga, naked yoga, goat yoga.
Some worry the practice is losing its spirituality and that the Instagram generation has made it about posing not poses. Others think it fills a spiritual vacuum in the irreligious West, where navel-gazing is not a tricky yoga move. Devotees defend its health benefits and positive messages of love, compassion and serenity. A noble position to take.

How to Plan a Movie-Themed Vacation
lt's easier than you may expect to find, visit, and enjoy the places where your favorite movies were made.
By Shivani Vora
March 8, 2018
Whether it's the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy in New
Zealand or “Roman Holiday” in Rome, many noteworthy
movies are filmed in appealing locales all over the world
that travelers may want to visit and enjoy.
According to Angela Tillson, a film location manager in
Kauai who has worked on the set of films including
“Jurassic Park: The Lost World" and “The Descendants,"
exploring a beloved movie set destination through the eyes
of the film makes for an enjoyable vacation. “Seeing a
place with a focus on a movie you love will give you a
perspective that the average tourist doesn't usually get.
You'll certainly have a better impression of the place,” she
said. Here are her tips to get started.
Choose Your Destination
If there's a movie you love, you can find out where it
was filmed by looking at the credits at the end of the film or
by going online to The Internet Movie Database, also
known as IMDB, which often lists filming locations. Once
you know the locale, you can start planning your trip. Or,
consider doing what Ms. Tillson often does when deciding
on where to vacation: pick a spot you're interested in
visiting, and find out what movies have been filmed there.
“It's fun to sometimes let a destination determine the movie
you're going to live rather than the other way around,” Mis.
Get in the Mood
Before you head to your destination, be sure to
rewatch the movie. A rewatch not only reminds you of
identifiable spots to look out for during your trip, but it also
adds to the excitement of your upcoming exploration.
If the movie is based on a book, consider reading the
book, too. It may have details about the locale that the
movie doesn't touch on. Also, books often have scenes
that don't make it into the movie adaptations, which gives
you a deeper view of the destination. Ms. Tillson also
recommended downloading the movie's soundtrack or
score, and listening to it throughout your trip.
Book a Themed Trip
Some travel companies sell set itineraries focused on
popular movies. Luxury tour operator Zicasso, for example,
has an eight-day trip, all inclusive, to Ireland inspired by
“Star Wars: The Last Jedi" and Wild Frontiers has an
eleven-day trip to India inspired by “The Best Exotic
Marigold Hotel” Ms. Tillson suggested doing a web search
or checking with a travel agent to find out about such trips.
Also, in some destinations, local tour operators and
hotels sell movie-themed tours. For instance, The St. Regis
Priceville Resort offers a tour that includes a private
helicopter ride to Manawaiopuna Falls, made famous in
“Jurassic Park,” and an ATV tour of filming locations of
movies such as “Raiders of the Lost Ark" and “Pirates of
the Caribbean.” Lunch is even included. The cost is $5,674
for two adults.
A more affordable option, in Rome, is the four-hour
"Roman Holiday” themed excursion from HR Tours, where
travelers ride a Vespa with a driver and see all the sites
from the movie; the cost is 170 euros per person.
Hang Where the Movie Crew Did
When they're not working, movie crews enjoy hitting
local bars and casual restaurants that serve tasty loca!
cuisine, Ms. Tillson said.
Find out where the behind-the-scenes staff of your
film spent their time by asking your destination's tourist
board or your hotel's concierge, and check out a few of the
spots. “lts another way to get involved in the film and
spend time in bars and restaurants that you wouldn't
normally think to hit,” she said.

04 .“Bohemian Rhapsody” é uma canção cuja letra foi escrita por Freddie Mercury, gravada originalmente pela banda Queen em 1975 no álbum A Night at the Opera. Esta canção possui uma estrutura musical incomum para a música popular, o que a faz ser considerada por muitos uma obra de rock progressivo. Suas seis sessões não possuem um refrão.
