The yogshala welcomes you to be part of their family with full of grace and hospitality. They have all the facilities to make your stay exciting and entertaining. They have airy rooms.

So, get away from your daily travesties of life, come and spend a few days with Akshi Yogashala to see how they would accommodate you.

Program

The course is best for beginners to deeply understand and to get into the gist of yoga. While Ashtanga yoga would relax the muscles and detoxify the organs of the body, Hatha yoga brings rhythm and sense to the body and soul. If incorporated with laughter yoga, it becomes highly elevating.

Meditation

Along with Hatha and Ashtanga yoga, you will be practicing meditation, which is an integral part of the yoga retreat. Ask yourself, where would be a better place to meditate than in the Himalayas of Rishikesh? You will be taught yoga meditation techniques that ancient rishis and sages performed. You will understand the art of concentration and how to lead a pious life. Meditation in this environment will unify your body with the soul and the soul with the cosmic entity.
