28 Days Spiritual Meditation and Yoga Retreat Rishikesh India

Avdhoot Ashram, Railway Road, Rishikesh, Dehradun, Uttarakhand, India

Meditation Pranayama & Mantra Chanting Retreat, India

IYMS Rishikesh offers 4 weeks of holistic retreat for complete rejuvenation of ‘Tan’ (physical body), ‘Mann’ (Mind), and ‘Antarmann’ (inner self). The retreat pays equal emphasis on bringing the best out of you. Every human being has a huge potential, but almost everyone is not utilising it. Some common challenges that stop us from using our true potential are ‘Krodh’ (anger), ‘Lobh’ (greed), and ‘Atyadhik Iccha’ (the endless pursuit of wants). At IYMS, they help you understand the true potential you have, our transformative retreat is a power packed experience that will gradually change the course of your life towards peace, love, satisfaction and eventually towards happiness. The retreat comprises three components of Yoga(for the physical self), ‘Dhyan’ (meditation for the mind) and ‘Pranayama’ (for experiencing a beautiful thing called life). Our breath is the biggest testament to our being, if there is no breath, there is no us.

Retreat location

Situated on the bank of Ganges, Rishikesh is one of the holiest pilgrimage places in India. For thousands of years, it has been chosen retreat of saints, sages, and pilgrims who after retiring from worldly involvement pursued a solitary life of study, meditation, and austerity. Shri Avdhoot Ashram is situated in Rishikesh near the major pilgrimage places of Haridwar. Located as it is between the swiftly-flowing yet the serene Ganges and the foothills of the Himalayas, it is an ideal and tranquil setting for spiritual practice.

The sounds of nearby temple bells and devotional songs are carried on the morning and evening breezes, mingling with birdsong and augmenting the peaceful and contemplative atmosphere of the ashram. Rishikesh is one of the most popular pilgrim centers and gateway to the Himalayan Shrines of Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri, and Yamunotri. The yoga centers of Rishikesh have enhanced the significance of the place.

From this point, the great Ganges leaves behind her mountain home and enters the vast plains of Northern India. Rishikesh is located at a height of about 1360 feet above sea level. It is believed that several yogis and sages lived and practiced penance here. Rishikesh represents the site where Vishnu vanquished the demon Madhu. At present, it is the unofficial yoga capital of the world with people from around the world coming to learn the practice of yoga from the source.
