During your retreat, you will be accommodated at the Yoga Niketan Ashram. You will stay in an Ashram style single, clean, and safe room with private bathroom. Ashrams represent a return to a simpler way of living, which is very different from a hotel. Generally, there is a more communal atmosphere and an appreciation for the true meaning of the yogic lifestyle.

Double room available upon request. During the hot season, A/C rooms are offered. You will also find a desk, chair, and an armoire, a little porch or balcony to relax or read your favorite book. Towels, soap, and toilet paper are provided.

All rooms are simple, yet quaint and immersed in lush greenery. The yoga studio is fully equipped with mats, block, straps, and bolsters. This studio is within walking distance of each accommodation. 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.

Program

On this retreat, you will join the healing practice of kirtan. You will practice Yin and Restorative poses, as well as different types of meditation and rebalance with yoga Nidra. You will explore the ancient town of Rishikesh, visit sacred caves and temples, meet sadhus and gurus, watch the sun rises in the Himalayas, and breathe together the holy energy of Ma Ganga while you've been nourished with organic, vegetarian, yogic meals. You will journal your experiences and delve into open discussions and yogic studies.
