Rishikesh has that spiritual vibe right from the first instance you step in. The temples with their morning and evening chants, lush green trees dotting your path while you take a walk, unbelievable smells that tickle your nostrils, beautiful sunsets by the river, the towering mountains which seem to always be there for you wherever you look, open-hearted people who make you welcome everywhere you go, and the mystical presence of Yoga in every aspect of this town make it a spiritual haven. Coming here on your Yogic Journey grants you the amazing chance of acquiring an immersive Yoga practice right where the historical masters once practiced.
Rishikesh Yog Sansthan is located at the very heart of Rishikesh. Come stay with us for a transformative experience that stays with you for an eternity. The Holy river Ganga is just a five-minute walk away, perfect for an evening stroll. Our centre is nestled in the lap of the majestic emerald Himalayan mountains. This storybook setting is ideal for a tranquil inward journey that you wish to embark on. Our school is ideally placed in Swarg Ashram,near the iconic Ram Jhula, one of the premier settlements in Rishikesh where all the oldest Ashrams began. Our centre is on a quieter side of town but well in proximity to general stores for essential needs, chemists for medicine, stationery shops, ATMs, restaurants, cafes, and the two bridges, Ram Jhula and Lakshman Jhula, thus making it an ideal place to stay. Our accommodation meets standards with tidy rooms that are inviting and cosy. You have the option to choose from private accommodation or a shared room. All rooms have clean beds and blankets, attached bathrooms with water heater system, and periodic clean-up facilities. Filtered drinking water is available in the kitchen. The entire school has WiFi access, and a well-equipped library with several books for your reference.
As the old saying goes, "We are what we eat". It is always necessary to watch what we consume, for it is a known fact that the food we eat not only affects our physical health, but also translates into our emotions and thoughts. Instead of categorising food into the usual carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, the science of Yoga groups food according to the way they influence our mind and body. The state of our mind and body is divided into three stages– Sattva, Rajas and Tamas. Tamasic foods are the kind of foods that affect you in such a way that we end up feeling lethargic and dysfunctional. Rajasic foods tend to make you bring about hyperactivity and a sort of irritable restlessness. Sattvic foods, however, are the most balanced. They make you feel just right, in good spirits, and full of life.
Rishikesh Yog Sansthan believes that happiness reflects on a plate of food that has just been emptied. Our chefs know just what you need to sustain during your intensive course which tends to be heavy physically and emotionally. Our meals are prepared with fresh, organic ingredients. Every plate of food comes with a special portion of love on the side. All our meals are freshly prepared in a tidy cooking environment with utmost love and concern for whoever sits down to eat. Your three meals will include the right amount of sustenance to keep you enthusiastic and sprightly throughout the day. The breakfast will be light with lots of fruits, oats, porridge, and an assortment of Indian recipes. You will also be served herbal tea during the breaks.
Lunch and dinner will include delicious traditional Indian dishes with lots of vegetables and legumes. Book Yoga in Rishikesh guarantees that all sustenance is incipient and arranged in clean conditions. You will always have access to the water filter which has Reverse Osmosis technology for your purified drinking water. If you have a particular dietary restriction like gluten free or vegan, you can inform us in advance and arrangements to accommodate the same can be made. It is always our pleasure to serve you with love.
Of course, if you are visiting a new country, you would not be spending all of your free time in a school. Rishikesh Yog Sansthan is in an ideal geographic location that grants seamless access to several spots of interest and shops for daily requirement.
Rishikesh Yog Sansthan would be honoured to have your presence among us. Our previous students have become an extended family. We are waiting to welcome you to the family as well.
