Rishikesh Yoga Ashram is a self sustainable community living ashram retreat, a space where we welcome you to practice authentic yoga and meditation as well as learning about sustainable concepts like permaculture and natural building. This ashram is a sustainable community and is set up for complete yogic living which incorporates yoga practice, building with natural materials, growing organic food to respect our body and provide healthy nutrition.
Rishikesh Yogaashram is located on the holy mountain called Manikut, where it is believed Shiva meditated for 60,000 years after consuming venom to save the world. We are located on top of this beautiful holy mountain where we have a 180 degree view of the sacred Ganges River and the Rishikesh city. We have a view each day of the rising sun and sunset, it is a movie every evening!
The vision of this Ashram dowloaded into my consciousness 12 years ago whilst I was travelling around the world teaching yoga and meditation. I always dreamed and visioned, and a vision used came into my mind; to have a small community where our relationship is not based on conditions like money, but instead Love and care for each other. How beautiful it could be to live that kind of life, where we genuinely organicically care about each other and support each other and put other people before ourselves. A community bonded with unconditional true Love.
Then slowly the universe provided me little by little, to really manifest this vision, which took about 10 years to bring us to the point where I can share this space with the visitors from around the globe. I am very grateful that the universe supported me to manifest this dream, and this is the time now to host friends and guests from around the world to this beautiful place.
So please be welcome come and join us, maybe you want to come as a guest or just for a day visit. Maybe you want to come as a volunteers long term. Our doors are open to everyone regardless of your situation. As long as you are looking for a place where you want to dive deep within, to rest with yourself, to relax in every cell of your body, to rejuvenate and be born again. Namaste!
