Our newly constructed ashram is located at the north end of the yoga village, in Ram Jhula, Rishikesh. We overlook the Rishikesh valley, the glorious mountains, the expansive jungle landscape, and we neighbor onto farmland. Our building is nestled in a very quiet pocket, tucked away from the markets and any noise disturbance. This safe environment is a place where all students minds will be completely at peace thus guaranteeing an enriching experience. The only sounds you will hear are that of nature. This location is a truly inspirational place to re-connect with nature, oneself, and it is an exceptional place for one to go inward and deepen their practice.

Our brand new, fully equipped, state of the art, yogshala floats high in the sky and offers spectacular jungle and mountain views, lots of natural light, and extraordinary energy. When the windows are open, the fresh breeze rolls through the shala and the soothing sound of birds and bell chimes can be heard in the distance. We feel incredibly blessed to have found such a beautiful space for our shala.

We have taken our time, over one year, searching out the most ideal environment for our ashram. We listened to all the requests and feedback of our students and finally found the perfect place to call home. We are honored to be able to offer our students such a beautiful peaceful environment.

How to get there

Arrival by train

Rishikesh railway station; a quiet branch line connects Rishikesh to Haridwar, but there are only about three slow trains daily. It's best to take the train to Haridwar as Haridwar is serviced by many trains from to Delhi, Varanasi, Rajasthan, Amritsar, etc. and continue by bus (45 min), by taxi (30 mins or by shared auto-rickshaw (40 min).

Arrival by bus

From Delhi, Rishikesh is about 230 km away and is well connected with buses. A bus journey may take about 5-7 hours - depending on the traffic. There are 3 classes of buses that can be booked. We recommend you choose the luxury Volvo bus when coming by bus as it is most comfortable for foreigners.

Arrival by taxi

Taxis are widely available anywhere in India. The drive from/to Delhi lasts around 5 to 6 hours, depending on traffic conditions. Cost of transportation by taxi is estimated to be around 70 USD.

  • A reservation requires a deposit of 20% of the total price.
