Retreat location

Rishikesh is a well-known and famous place for yoga and meditation in India. Rishikesh is believed as a yoga capital of the world. Since ancient time, so many yogis, sages, and seers had done the practice of yoga and meditation here, in the forest of Himalayas and on the bank of holy river Ganga.

Mahirishi Patanjali had a deep practice of yoga as well as researched on herbal medicines in the forest of Rishikesh 2,600 years ago.
