Retreat location

Rishikesh, at the foothills of the mighty Himalayas, has been revered as the world capital of yoga. The reason for this is that the sages who used to practice austerities in the Himalayas would come down periodically to establish their bases in the hostile months.

Also, pilgrims who wished to go on their pilgrimage deeper into the Himalayas would make this their starting point. This confluence has also lead to the development of several ashrams, and Rishikesh came into being as the Ashram town.

Over the years, Rishikesh has grown into a small but bustling town. Yet, the ashram areas give the ambience of a small town village with tremendous spiritual energy. The mighty Ganges river flows by and the evenings are a delight to be on the banks with several aarti (lamp) ceremonies being held along the banks.
