Rishikesh is the “yoga capital of India”. The jungles and riverside of Rishikesh are where sages and gurus practiced and perfected yoga and meditation for years. Yoga, the ancient Indian tradition of staying healthy, is celebrated during International Yoga Week in Rishikesh, on the banks of the Ganges at the base of the Himalayas, in Rishikesh. The word “Yoga” comes from the Sanskrit word “Yuj”, which means to bind, unite, join, direct and focus one’s attention, use and apply. While practicing yoga, all the energies of body, mind and soul are involved. Yoga is a very useful practice for disciplining the intellect, mind, emotions and will and provides a uniform view of all aspects of life. This retreat will provide an incredible opportunity to live, breathe and experience yoga on a whole new level. Not only will you practice and deepen your Asanas (Yoga postures), but you will awaken your spirit and open up to a healthier and more fulfilling life. You will learn the tools to have a healthier, more positive and enriching life through the detailed and compassionate teaching of our authentic yoga teachers and spiritual masters.
