Retreat location

Move Your Spirit Yoga is centrally located at the Yoga Niketan Ashram, one of the most renowned in Rishikesh, the world's capital of yoga. Strategically situated on a little hill, with a breathtaking view of the river Ganga, away from crowds and noises.

Since the samadhi (tomb) of Guru Yogeshwarananda - right by the yoga hall - fills the space with sacred energy, the atmosphere is particularly peaceful and conducive to meditation, yoga, and self-discovery.

Afternoon Ayurvedic tea is offered daily at 4:00 p.m. and the library, open most of the day and evening, offers a wide selection of yogic texts also in English. Wi-Fi available at the library during specific hours.
