Welcome to Himalayan Yog Ashram, Rishikesh India
Our Yoga school and Ayurveda retreat centre are located within walking distance to the banks of River Ganga and in the peaceful scenery of Tapovan, Rishikesh. We are 45 minutes driving distance from the Jolly Grant, Dehradun Airport. Himalayan Yog Ashram is rated as one of the best places for Yoga Teacher Training and Yoga & Ayurveda Retreats in Rishikesh, India.
Other than a love for Mother Nature and Spiritual Healing of Body-Mind, we are equally passionate about spiritual and cultural exchange between East and West, as envisioned by Swami Vivekananda. We show our respect and take inspiration from the ancient yogis of India to all modern spiritual mystics. Nevertheless, the main purpose of the ashram is to create a suitable environment to practice spiritual sadhana, irrespective of the personal beliefs students may follow.
We work towards educating the local farmers about the benefits of Organic Farming and also promote the distribution of organic vegetable seeds free of cost. We organize medical camps for the local villagers to receive free Ayurveda consultations and medication. We also offer help with improving basic drinking water, sanitation in our neighbouring villages and schools. Every year we donate the books, uniforms, or basic needs for the school children in nearby villages.
Planting trees is one of the key initiatives we have taken to embrace change in society and give back oxygen to nature. Solar power is the key to a clean energy future. The sun gives off far more energy than we need to power everything on earth. That’s why we’re investing heavily in solar plants and our Ashram runs 24*7 with the backup power of solar energy.
