The Ashram at Rishikesh

Rishikesh town lies on the banks of the holy Ganga (Ganges), nestled in the lap of the Himalayas.

The Ashram for you will be around the main Ashram areas of Ram Jhula and Laxman Jhula, an area where pious themes create an atmosphere of true spiritual sublimity.

It is no surprise that pilgrims are drawn here from all over the world. The inspiring simplicity and calmness of the ashram, the clear, flowing Ganga, small township as well as the majestic mountains not very far away, will embrace and rejuvenate your entire being. The Ashram offers inspiration and upliftment for your body, mind and spirit as well as a deeper connection with the Divine.

But what really sets apart an Ashram stay from a conventional hotel stay is the unique experience of positive energy vibrations generated through years of accumulated spiritual energy of mantras, chants and the aura of great spiritual saints.

As you stay in the ashram, you will feel your soul bathing in the peace of sacred energies, including those that emanate from nature and those that linger from the timeless healing powers of saints, sages and holy ones. The Ashram contains within it the voice and the spirit of divine communion.

The Weight Loss Program

This is a unique weight loss program that combines Yoga, Naturopathy and Ayurveda to achieve weight loss in a healthy manner while increasing the prana or life force in the body.

As you will be living in the Ashram while visiting the center for the Weight loss program, the Ashram meals conform to the naturopathy diet that will be a part of this program.

You will experience Ayurveda Panchkarma treatments that are set upon your body type and needs. The treatment is supplemented with an exercise plan as per Naturopathy guidelines.

The average weight loss is about 6kg in a 14 day program or 12kgs in a 28 days program. Weight loss efficacy depends upon individual conditions and compliance.  

The residential rooms retain the simplicity of ashram living and yet are equipped with the necessary modern facilities. All rooms have attached, Western style bathrooms and many have hot, running water. All linens are provided. The ashram provides a clean, pure and sacred atmosphere to thousands of pilgrims and devotees.

Please note that the Ashram stay is basic. Some of our clients have even described their Ashram stay as a culture shock. Even though the rooms have all necessary facilities including beddings, blankets and attached baths, however, please do not expect a 5-star reception or welcome here. This is NOT a hotel and for most part you will have to find your way around; of course, the Healthandyoga team will always be only a simple phone call away.
