Description
vertical line

In this package we organize your stay in a 3-star equivalent hotel in New Delhi and a simple basic stay at Rishikesh, among the foothills of the Himalayan range, for a true Yoga flavor.

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

The main Yoga enclaves of Rishikesh are around the Ram Jhula and Laxman Jhula, an area where pious themes create an atmosphere of true spiritual sublimity - this is where you will be put up

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 Rishikesh 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.  

Accommodation:
HealthAndYoga makes special arrangements catering to Western Sensibilities. We make stay arrangements in simple but sufficient guesthouses / budget hotel OR an ashram.

Usually Ashrams can be dirty and inappropriate as per Western standards. Moreover, they can be impersonal with the guest feeling lost. So, unless we get a 'reasonably' clean ashram we do not put up our guests in Ashrams.

BUT, we ensure the guest gets the right flavor of Rishikesh and Ashrams - we arrange the yoga program in the Ashram as well as the fooding... this helps the guests get the true Ashram flavor without having to live in inadequately provided Ashram rooms.

You will be provided an INDEPENDENT room with attached Western Style bathroom and provision of hot and cold water.
