Staying and studying with Punyah Yoga is already a unique experience due to its location: set in close proximity to nature, being near the magnificent Himalayan Mountains, and close to the banks of Holy Ganga (or otherwise known as the Ganges). To improve it even more and to allow the students to enjoy the full benefits of the course at every level, Punyah Yoga takes particular care to arrange a cozy, comfortable and peaceful stay for every participant.

Located in a tranquil surrounding, yet still, in the heart of Rishikesh (lively Tapovan), your neat and clean rooms offer a perfect base for good-night sleep and regeneration after an eventful day of practice and learning.

The rooms are equipped with all necessary modern facilities: en-suites with hot water 24/7, and a reliable fast internet connection.

The accommodation is on a single or sharing basis - according to preference - inside the same building is your yoga shala and training hall.

Please let Punyah Yoga know if you would like to come earlier or stay longer - they are happy to help you with all the arrangements. If you are taking a course along with your partner or friend and wish to stay together, please let Punyah Yoga know in advance. They will do their best to accommodate you.

Retreat location

Rishikesh is a busy and buzzing town. One could expect to see many temples, yoga schools, daily drop-in yoga classes, loitering cows and dogs, hotels, motels, guest houses, chai corners, coffee shops, a German bakery, multi-cuisine restaurants, yoga massage places, fruits stalls, trekking tour guides, scooter and taxi rentals, you name it.

Also, one could also expect to meet local tourists from various parts of India and travelers from all around the globe. There are many popular ashrams here: Parmarth Ashram, Gita Ashram, and Sachidanand Ashram – all of which offer yogic food at a very minimal price.

There is also the Ganges Aarti: a ritual that uses fire as an offering. This proves to be a very popular event for anyone who is in Rishikesh. Parmarth aarti and Triveni ghat aarti is also known to draw in crowds. Rishikesh becomes quieter as soon as evening arrives and the sun settles down. Shops shut down by 8 p.m. There are a number of good cafes to explore around the area which is mostly open until 10 to 11 p.m.
