We are traveling around India for 3 months and decided to do a 7 Day Yoga Retreat in Rishikesh. Priya and Dinesh were instantly welcoming, and the week offered us a range of yoga, anatomy and Ayurveda classes, as well as trips to the Beetle Ashram, waterfall and temples at sunrise. The classical morning yoga and Paranayama (breathing exercises) were perfect to wake up to, alongside the chanting and a cup of lemon and ginger tea. We all really enjoyed the more energetic Hatha yoga in the afternoon, and the Sunday laughing yoga session. The group had a great family feel, everyone got involved to help one another. As beginners we found all the teachers gave us good explanations and modifications for all the exercises we undertook. On our final evening we did a dance/movement meditation class which was great fun, and the most rewarding meditation we've done. The food for the week was provided by Soul Kitchen, it was AMAZING! Loads of variety of veggie food and juices, homemade and served with a smile (the food was the best we've had in India!) We joined a group completing the 200 hour TTC, on week 3 of their program. The 3rd week was perfect for us, but we maybe wouldn't advise joining on week 4, as that's when the 200 hour group have their exams, and the program has a different timetable. Thank you for a great week! We'll drop in if we're in Rishikesh again :)
