11 Day Yoga & Meditation Retreat in Rishikesh
19 – 29 February 2016 ~ €699 pps
Rishikesh & North India
We are committed to ethical, environmental and spiritual values, and to lead a healthy and harmonious lifestyle. We like to provide vegetarian food – good food is like a medicine for spirit and body. Our programs are a blend of Ayurvedic treatments and Yoga, including Pranayama (breathing techniques), Meditation and contemplative walks in nature.
Rishikesh, sometimes nicknamed “the world capital of Yoga”, has numerous yoga centres that also attract tourists. It is believed that meditation in Rishikesh brings one closer to attainment of moksha, as does a dip in the holy river Ganges, which flows through it.
The best time to visit is September to March, peak season is December to February – peak time supplement €175
The sacred river Ganges flows through the city. It is here that the river leaves the Himalayas and flows out into the plains of northern India. Several temples, ancient as well as new, can be found along the banks of the Ganges. With Haridwar about an hour south, Rishikesh is considered by Hindus to be a holy city and is vegetarian by law.
