 Retreat location

This yoga teacher training will take place in Rishikesh, India. Rishikesh is the yoga capital of the world, located at the foothills of Himalayas and on the banks of holy Ganga. The town has its own spirit and is one of the safest places in India. Backpackers from around the world are found strolling on the streets at every time of the day.

Rishikesh is one of the holiest pilgrimage places in India. For thousands of years, it has been chosen retreat of saints, sages, and pilgrims who after retiring from worldly involvement pursued a solitary life of study, meditation, and austerity.

Rishikesh is one of the most popular pilgrim centers and gateway to the Himalayan Shrines of Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri, and Yamunotri. The yoga centers of Rishikesh have enhanced the significance of the place. From this point, the great Ganges leaves behind her mountain home and enters the vast plains of Northern India.

Rishikesh is located at a height of about 1360 feet above sea level. It is believed that several yogis and sages lived and practiced penance here. Rishikesh represents the site where Vishnu vanquished the demon Madhu.
