Retreat location

Rishikesh has been the abode for ancient seers and sages of antiquity who have been mentioned again and again in the traditional system of knowledge. As the name itself implies “the pinnacle of the seers”, this holy city has been the spiritual guiding light throughout ancient India and now the whole world.

The location has attained the status of world yoga capital owing to its profound and ongoing tradition of imparting yogic knowledge and is a center of mixed cultures where you can find both Indian and foreign individuals moving in the busy streets of this holy city. Both of them are coming for the same purposes which are searching for soul and the true essence of ancient Indian spirituality.

The holy river, Ganges, makes the place even more interesting and peaceful that you can find most of the populace residing and spending their time with the constantly flowing mother Ganges. Hence, this place is regarded as one of the most holy pilgrimages.
