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.

Retreat location

Om Sampoorn 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 which is 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.
