Ashram Living at its BestYou know who you are… if you’re seWhile the ascetic Ashram experience is not for everyone, those who seek a deeper connection will find this one to be a lovely serene place populated by loving and efficient staff who go beyond their duty to ensure you have what you need. You will find well presented meditation and yoga classes hosted in spacious beautiful rooms. You will find the food delicious and plentiful and you will enjoy participating in ritual and celebration not always included in other ashrams. It is a school yet also caters to those who just want to experience the atmosphere and classes in a less structured way. Guru-Ji himself is a wonderful teacher and has a delightful sense of humour. I truly enjoyed my time time there! Hari OM!
Amazing Guru and AshramI really enjoyed staying at this Ashram. When I went there, I had anxiety, however, with all these beautiful yoga classes and pojas, I got healed. Love that place. I will be back. Rishikesh as a whole is a magnificent place. And you should visit it if you are into Yoga and spirituality.
