Yoga in Rishikesh
In Rishikesh there are numerous temples and ashrams, some historical and some newer ones. The city attracts thousands of pilgrims and tourists from India and western countries every year. There are many Yoga schools, most of which have a very long tradition. Rishikesh has the reputation to be the "Yoga Capital" of the world. Hindus believe that through meditation in Rishikesh and bathing in the sacred river Ganges, they can find the way to salvation (Moksha). During the 1960s, the Beatles and other western musicians visited Rishikesh to meditate.
Accommodation and Yoga program for our participants in Rishikesh is at Parmarth Nikean Ashram, one of Rishikesh's finest Ashrams, which offers views over the holy river Ganges.
