ITINERARY

First up, an immersion into tranquil Ashram life, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Our days here revolve around an itinerary of morning meditation and breath-work, yogic cleansing techniques, Hatha Yoga, breakfast, Karma Yoga, scenic walk, lunch, rest time, discussion, Ashtanga Yoga, sunset blessing, chanting, dinner, and a final meditation before bed. You will also experience a ritual blessing in the Sacred River Ganges, as well as a traditional Havan Fire Ceremony.

We look forward to taking you on an exciting excursion into Rishikesh itself, the birthplace of yoga. Prepare to be awe-struck by temples, saris, cows, vegan cafes, shopping extravaganza, bookshops, yoga jewellery, and a rich diversity of people like you have never seen.

Our final 3 days take us from mighty mountainous and roaring rivers, to the enchanting countryside. Here you will experience our tailored nature yoga programme, and the tastes of Mama-ji’s home cooking.

Expect to leave with a feeling of lightness, inspired joy, and an enriched sense of freedom.
