Healing Yoga Retreat India

Join us for 12 days of yoga on and off the mat as we stretch our bodies through different intelligent sequences of asana, rest our minds with the help of various styles of meditation, and participate in all that holy Rishkesh has to offer. We will partake in holy ceremonies by the sacred river Ganga, watch fire rituals, and make our own. We will visit temples in the Himalayas and enter sacred caves only few know about. We will offer our services for Karma yoga and we will expand our understanding of the sacred practice of yoga, supported and surrounded by majestic mountains and holy water.
