Course description

Our Retreats explore Yoga in a quiet and natural setting. They are perfect for people new to yoga or those already experienced. If you are looking inwards to spend time reflecting, we provide a sacred space for you to do this and we will customize your stay to best meet your needs. Our Yoga Retreats are designed to help you achieve a better understanding of yourself, and hopefully the role & purpose of your life. The idea of Kundalini – The Serpent Power is unknown in the west. It finds mention in a veiled way in the Bible, but there are clear mentions of it in the book of alchemy. Kundalini Yoga is more precisely that which consists of the control of prana, the subtle energy, by regular and intensive practice of various breathing techniques. Controlling the flow of prana through the nadis in Kundalini Yoga thus awakens the chakras and finally opens the path for the Kundalini Shakti (Power). You will learn the fundamentals of Serpent Power, Seven Chakras along the spinal column and Pranic Network of your body made of tiny Srotas (Channels). Associated Asanas, Pranayams and Mantras plus Bandhas to guide the Pranic energy for rousing the Kundalini will be taught. You will also learn about the Gyan Indriya (Sensory Organs), Karma Indriyas (Organs of Action) and the Tatvas (Elements). Also introduction to Kriyas to tap into the omnipresent and infinite source of Kundalini energy. How to go about sustaining the connection if and when your Kunda arises.

About the place

Rishikesh Yoga Retreat is a boutique retreat ensconced amidst the foothills of the Great Himalayas in Tapovan, Rishikesh. It is a serene and peaceful locale away from the main highway. The sacred Ganges River pours luminous blue-green water from the Shivalik Hills on her journey to the plains. It is easy to see why Rishikesh (Lord Vishnu) was named “Lord of the Senses” and why Uttarakhand, the state in which it lies, is known as Dev Bhumi – “Land of the Gods”. Each room at Rishikesh Yoga Retreat offers breathtaking views of the valley and Himalayan Hill accompanied with a private and quiet balcony area to relax, sip a cup of tea, or just read a book to the sound of the River Ganges and the wind kissing the hills.

Food

The Multi Cuisine Restaurant serves Organic Vegetarian cuisine. We offer a diverse menu, healthy and delicious cuisine incorporating traditional and contemporary, using primarily locally sourced organic vegetables and ingredients. Herbal teas, Juices, Teas are obtainable at all time. We prepare vegetarian meals made with the most fresh ingredients purchased at the local market daily as well as sourced from our Organic farms in the Himalayas.

Other activities

Just as the sun’s rising is manifest by prayers. Each evening as the sun’s last rays reflect off the endless waters of mother Ganga, we congregate for the Ganga Aarti. This divine light ritual is filled with devotional prayers, songs, rituals and a palpable sense of the holiness of mother Ganga. The Aarti, an ornate oil lamp, lined with dozens of inferno burning in pure ghee- is offered to god. We give gratitude for the blessings bestowed upon us that day, as well as representatively offering light back to Ganga Aarti is a time when we break free from the normal strain & stresses of every- day life, & gather together in joy, peace and reverence. For those looking for more physical activities, kayaking, White Water River rafting, rappelling, climbing and cliff jumping are available upon request. Mountain Biking: Get on to special mountain bikes, to explore the nearby villages and forests, or ask for a challenging route to push the level of biking action further. Typical Indian Experience: Rishikesh Yoga Retreat organises Himalayan Folk Dance Performances and Local Classical Music Recitals occasionally. You can also ask our staff to take you to a neighbouring village to witness the festivities of the several cultural and spiritual events that take place each month. Nature Active - Himalayan Village Experience: During this visit, you can see the agricultural, herb & rice paddy fields. You are guided by our occupant team of framers to learn more about the various items that are grown in and around the retreat. Activities include planting, weeding, harvesting and watering various herbs and food that go into their rejuvenation oils and food. Please note the agricultural activity is seasonal in villages.
