My name is Susanna and I come from Italy .I spent with my family a really good time in Rishikesh at Real Happiness ashram. I 've partecipated to many courses, meditation, ayurveda, philosophy, mantra, yoga and pranayama classes.I enjoyed also a course of sound healing. Also my son 13 years old, has got a wonderful experience because he attended the course of"kids mindfulness meditation program". At Real happimess all lessons are structured in a very complete way. All teachers are prepared and always very kind. Also the services are great: healthy ayurvedic food, big and cleaned rooms. The people were kind and for my husband, my son and me it felt like we were at home. We certainly will come back at Real Happiness!

I had an wonderful experience at Real Happiness seven day retreat. We were a group of four girls looking for a week long meditation and yoga retreat in Rishikesh to unwind after a hectic few weeks exploring India. Real Happiness seemed like the perfect option. The course included daily meditation, philosophy, mantra chanting and yoga classes. Although I had practiced some yoga before, I had never really been able to meditate and had never delved into the theory and philosophy behind yoga. The classes were interesting, informative, immersive, fun and very spiritual. All our teachers were amazing, and we had many beautiful discussions with them. We were provided with three delicious vegetarian meals a day, all prepared by lovely Shruti and her team. I have been dreaming about them since! The bedrooms and wash room facilities were immaculate and comfortable. The retreat centre itself is in the forest, and we saw some beautiful birds from the yoga studio. We also did four excursions during the week - a trek to a temple, a waterfall meditation, beach yoga, all of which I enjoyed immensely. To round off the week we went to the Ganga Aarti, which was spectacular to say the least! From the minute we arrived we were looked after so well by the staff. I would like to thank Sanjay, Shruti, Swami Ji, Sanjay Óg, Vivek, Prince and all the rest of the staff for a week I will never forgot. Highly recommend to anyone looking to go to Rishikesh. 💕

As a group of four friends who are travelling together, we did the six day yoga and meditation retreat in Real Happiness and we are very grateful we made this choice. The staff were utterly wonderful, they made us feel right at home and have left us with lasting feelings of wellness. It was week busy with different classes and excursions, but overall it was relaxing, calming, enlightening and healing. Real Happiness is the perfect space to get in touch with yourself. We were served delicious Ayurvedic meals and got a cooking lesson thanks to Shruti! From the cooking to the detox classes, and the chats in between, Shruti has helped us understand more about ourselves, food and health. Sanjay was an incredible meditation teacher… For someone who was relatively unfamiliar with meditation practises, I feel I have not only been taught so well this past week, but also been given the tools to keep it up in the future. Our yoga classes were the highlight of the week, thanks to our teacher, Sanjay. He created the perfect environment to improve our yoga skills. He was attentive and made sure everyone in the class got specific help through the classes, and made everyone comfortable at the same time. When you think you’re doing something 100%, he helps you realise you can give more, and pushes you to give 150% of your body to the practise. It was a fantastic experience learning from him! He’s a true yoga teacher. We have left Real Happiness with a peace within ourselves. We have a fresh, clear head for our journey to come, and fond memories too! We cannot thank you all at Real Happiness enough - Sanjay and Shruti and everyone else who made our stay special, and we hope to see you all again someday!
