Rishikesh, India

It is believed that meditation in Rishikesh brings one closer to attainment of moksha (liberation), as does a dip in the holy Ganges river that flows through town. Once made famous by the Beatles’ visit in the '60s to the ashram of the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Rishikesh is full of ashrams enjoyed by yogis from all over the world. Experience the sounds of temple bells ringing as sadhus (spiritual men), pilgrims and tourists prepare for the nightly ganga aarti ceremonies. The lighted diyas floating on the Ganga create a spectacular sight. Head into the Himalayan foothills to explore Hardiwar, literally "Gateway to God," a center of Hindu religion and mysticism for centuries. An experienced guide will accompany us throughout the journey to provide historical perspective each step of the way.

 

Testimonials

D. Kelley, India 2015

I can't imagine visiting India without the guidance of International Yoga. In just over two weeks I feel I saw the quintessential Indian sites and had a spiritual, yogic experience. The itinerary was expertly planned; it was the perfect balance of tourism—seeing all the monuments and sites that India has to offer and quiet, spiritual yoga time. Beginning with the craziness of Delhi, Jaipur, and Varanasi made me appreciate the calmer, more meditative environment of Rishikesh even more! It was an amazing, fulfilling trip.

I appreciate how much support you provided. You not only answered questions about the retreat, but also addressed my post-retreat travel concerns. In fact, even before I left for India I felt I was in really good hands!

A. Willmer, India 2015

Wonderful and thoughtful trip—from the beginning, where many unknowns exist, Michelle and Stephanie were very good at explaining and encouraging timely preparation and planning for every step. Then landing in India and experiencing being taken care of right from the start, as you step out of the airport—this was such a relief and comfort! The Sights and Sounds trip was truly a transformative vacation, and I feel it was because of the wonderful partnership between International Yoga; our Yoga teacher, Ann Dyer; and Mayank, our wonderful Indian guide and friend. Thank you everyone for letting us into your lives and truly giving your love and attention to making this an exquisite life experience.
