“Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self” – The Bhagavad Gita.
Yoga is all about calming your head not just standing on your head. Well, that’s true. How fascinating it would be to see people stand on their heads without actually being aware of their present mental condition. Millions of people live unaware of their mental health. We are so busy in our lives that we do not pay attention to our mental well-being.
That’s the thing about yoga – it works from within while transforming you from the outside. It works at a much deeper level and you won’t even realise that it has beautifully transitioned into a more conscious and empathetic human being.
Rishikesh is globally recognised as the Yoga Capital of the World. Rishikesh is a small town in the Indian state of Uttarakhand, about 5 hours north of Delhi. Uttarakhand is well-known for its mythology, valleys, and mountains.
Rishikesh entices spiritual travellers from all over the world, so you’ll encounter a wide variety of people who are interested in the same things you are. People come to Rishikesh not only for yoga and its soul-stirring environment that includes views of the mesmerising Himalayas and the holy Ganga River flowing through the city.

Our yoga retreats are both enjoyable and transformative because they include Sattvic meals, exciting excursions, a comfortable stay, a well-planned daily schedule, comfortable private rooms, picturesque scenery, heating/air conditioning, and much more.
The increased inner connection with the self, which leads to mental and spiritual development, is what makes these retreats so transformative.
