Beginner Yoga Retreat in Rishikesh, India (7 days)


Our Beginner Yoga Retreat in Rishikesh, India, welcomes newcomers and anyone who has felt excluded from yoga in the past for various reasons, such as being unfit, inflexible, limited by health concerns, or simply because of their age.  But traditionally, yoga has never discriminated against individuals.  Nature does not recognise any divisions amongst people – it is human perception that creates these barriers.

Morning practice: Hum-Sa kriya at the Vedic Yoga & Ayurveda Retreat Centre

We are the best Beginner Yoga Retreat program for a number of reasons:

  1. We offer ancient teachings from the Himalayan tradition for raising our consciousness, which have been tested through the ages and handed down to all humans without any discrimination.
  2. Our yoga program is not a one-size-fits-all approach – it is tailored to individual requirements to ensure that every student is able to find their inner balance and harmony.
  3. We keep class sizes small so that every individual can receive the personal attention they need to reach their optimal potential from the program.
  4. We are located in the foothills of the Himalayas on the banks of the sacred river Ganga, and this provides the appropriate atmosphere for connecting to your inner nature.
  5. Our yoga program is connected to our Ayurveda treatment centre, where you can receive healing therapy from our Ayurveda specialists (at additional cost).
  6. Our senior teacher has 21 years experience and is a dedicated yoga practitioner.
  7. Our program guides you in establishing a daily yoga and meditation routine so that you can experience overall well-being.  

So if you’re willing to explore timeless yogic practices that go beyond mere physical exercise, this course is for you.  

Everyone is welcome because YOGA IS FOR EVERY BODY.
