About Rishikesh

Rishikesh is an ancient spiritual centre in North India where seekers and Yogis have gathered for centuries. Today, Rishikesh is a vibrant community of Yoga students, spiritual seekers, adventure travellers, and Hindu pilgrims. With white sand beaches, temples, cafés and a thriving marketplace, Rishikesh is a world meeting place.

In the evening, the wind picks up and brings fresh Prana from the glaciers of the Himalayas, and many people find the energy here exhilarating and yet grounded in tradition.

Rishikesh is also surrounded by scenic landscapes, waterfalls, hiking trails, and meditation caves, and the holy city of Haridwar is less than 30 kilometres. We can help arrange day tours and transportation to nearby places of interest before or after the Retreat.

I attended the Ashram in Spring 2018. I was looking for an accessible place to practice yoga and learn about yoga philosophy and I certainly found it. The ashram is very welcoming, clean and relaxed. It holds a spiritual authenticity which is very powerful. I loved it so much that I am planning to return later this year.

Gail Taylor Pitt, UK; Ashram Guest

I stayed at Anand Prakash ashram on my solo trip to rishikesh! The ashram was very safe, clean, hygienic, affordable with homely food and very good people! I really recommend the ashram to solo travellers or first time visitors as it’s very safe and nearby Laxman Jhula which is a very happening place in Rishikesh.
