  • Review by Dane H. from San Francisco, California, US

    "My time at Himalayan Yog Ashram was a quiet, beautiful experience of meditation, yoga, pranayama, and learning. The rooms are spotless. The atmosphere is serene. All of the teachers, cooks, healers, and instructors are expert, friendly, and professional. The food was healthy and delicious. The yoga genre is from the Himalayan masters and very focused on breathing, meditation, and keeping breath under control during the asana practice vs. being a high-energy flow. It was so good, I booked for one week and stayed for two. Please note this is an amazing place for a deep inward journey but not a good place if you want to tour Rishikesh or socialize. Namaste!"

  • Review by Eliza J

    "Very appreciative and grateful for the excellent two weeks I spent at the ashram. I felt welcomed and nurtured my entire stay there and left feeling nourished and inspired. My commitment to my yoga practice really deepened during my stay and was well-supported by Ram and the other teachers, all of whom are energetic, focused, and available. The encouragement and practical methods of meditation are serving me well as I continue to pursue my practice daily."

    "The ashram itself is lovely and calm, set back from the village but still close enough to walk to the village, with a gorgeous view of the mountains. Other highlights for me were the treatments and the food. Both are so good! Sending warm regards to Ram and all the others there. Many thanks, and I hope to return again!"

  • Review by a traveler

    "I have spent five weeks in this ashram, and it was a life-changing experience. From the first moment I felt this incredible good and down-to-earth energy. I was very welcomed from everybody. The set program which can be adjusted to everybody’s needs is exactly what is needed to get grounded and to get slowly step by step deeper into the meditation and yoga practice. Ram was throughout the whole time very helpful with every single person. You could see and feel that he is very passionate to pass on his knowledge and to engage people to work on their discipline, which is a great boost to work even more on yourself."

    "The whole staff is lovely and very professional. They are all doing a great job. One more thing I would like to point out is the healthy and fresh food that is cooked and served with love every single day. I loved it."

    "It is a great place for people who want to create space, face themselves, and work on themselves. It is not a hotel to spend some time only to enjoy the yoga and meditation class. People who are looking for this, they should not stay in an ashram as they are only interrupting other people’s process."

    "I want to give a big thank you to everybody in Himalayan Yog Ashram. Everything I have learned will accompany me in the future, and I am very happy to have experienced this with you."

    "With love,"

  • Review by Helena D. from London

    "I’m writing this review for a visit to the ashram a year ago. It has taken me a while to get around to it! But that also says how much I enjoyed my stay. There aren’t many places that I’ve traveled to which have left such an impact and I’d take the time to write about a year later! My husband was a complete cynic about the whole trip and was more pressured than excited about going, but even he admitted he had the most wonderful experience. If you are looking for an ashram, in an intimate setting (there are only a handful of rooms), with a private bedroom and great teachers, this place is food for your soul."
