This is a jewel in Rishikesh which has many ashrams and spiritual centers. There are several amazing aspects to this center. It is located on the Ganges river basically and is super clean. As I mentioned above, and is the MOST important part, Master Shailendra is truly a great gift to the world. He knows so much and is so humble.

I asked for some lesson of meditation and breathing at some Ashrams in Rishikesh. Mr. Shailendra understood what I want to learn. I stayed this lovely place for over two weeks. My teacher Shailendra taught me a lot of things including trataka, jala neti, kapalabhati, nadi shodhana and some of meditation and asana. My small notebook was full of memorandum for what Shailendra talked. I got some vegetables and fruits and enjoyed cooking at a kitchen in the guesthouse. This stay is absolutely life-changing experience in my life. Back to Japan, still practicing and enjoying jala neti, some breathing and meditation.
