WHY RISHIKESH IS THE BEST PLACE FOR A RETREAT?
Rishikesh is the Yoga capital of the world, the place where the great saints and scholars came to further refine their learnings and experience their inner self. The place is filled with aura of such saints and sages, a few hours on the bank of river Ganga(Ganges) will rejuvenate your soul and the spiritual places of solitude will help your become ekkagra(focussed on your meditation). Rishikesh is a 100% vegetarian town with spirituality in the air, it has a legacy of thousands of years and our ashram is a testimony to it.
If you are looking for a retreat to enjoy and relax you can go to any part of the world, but if you looking for a place to rejuvenate your chitta(inner self), there is no better place than Rishikesh.
BENEFITS OF YOGA RETREAT AT IYMS
We offer retreats at Avdhoot Ashram, an ashram with decades of heritage and a huge following in India & abroad of Avdhoot ji maharaj. The ashram, is in itself a great offering that no one else can offer. When you enter the ashram, you will feel the great vibes which are a result of years of tap(devoted efforts) done by the gurus.
IYMS offers great gurus who are not only learned scholars but they also follow the acharan(behaviour) of a sadachari yogi(Yogi with great character). Our Yogis do not indulge in any form of tamasic activities and are committed towards Yoga and spirituality. The Yogis not only offer you great learning lessons but they also lead you into a spiritual life by sadachar(Ideal behaviour).

7 DAYS YOGA RETREAT

We use traditional Yogic methods and discourage all apbhrans(Modified forms) of Yoga. The students must understand that the derived forms do not have a vedic(Ancient) scientific origin. They are great exercise forms but Yoga is beyond the physical self.
I did my yoga teacher training here. The quality/price ratio was very good, especially since I have heard much worse things about other places. The teachers were great, the food was awesome and the atmosphere was nice at the ashram. Of course, there were times/days when all those things weren’t as good but there are always up and downs, that’s part of life.
I had successfully completed the 200 Yoga Teacher Training gaining my teaching certificate. I had truly an incredible – life changing month at the Avdhoot Ashram and have learned a huge amount in such a short period of time. I had also grown as a person both physically and mentally. I am very confident in my asanas and get into poses deeper than ever, and my mind seems sharper and more focused. I am ever so grateful to my incredible teachers Vikas, Siddhant, Vicky and Vipul, and of course to YMYS for all that I had learned. Namaste.
IYMS is a great place with supportive people. From airport pickup to every Yoga class you feel the personal touch in everything. The food, the people, everything is just wonderful. If you are planning to send someone to India for Yoga, it’s the best place. The ashram is located in the city and you can easily go to any place you want as there are a lot of tuk tuk that can take you anywhere.
Lovely, knowledgeable yogis at IYMS who put you and yoga above all else as priorities in teacher training. In-depth studies available here at an unbeatable price. Rishikesh is considered the World Capital of Yoga…unbelievable cultural and natural sites to explore including the nearby sacred Mother Ganges River as well as waterfalls, meditation caves and more. Totally heartwarming experience. Please say hello and namaste to IYMS’ Yogi Vivek when you visit…one of the best laughs and senses of humor that you might ever encounter on this planet we call home.
