Rainforest House, Rishikesh, India
Nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas, on the banks of the Holy River Ganges…. Rishikesh is thought by many to be the spiritual home of Yoga and it is one of the most beautiful and fascinating places to visit and practice in.
The main destinations are Laxman Julha and Ram Julha, two lively and bustling towns that have built up around pedestrian bridges that traverse the river. Here you will find countless Ashrams, Temples, Statues, Yogis, Gurus and Sadhus… not to mention a wide variety of tasty restaurants, shops and stalls….
Our home in Rishikesh is in a peaceful area, a few kilometres outside of town. It’s a large, beautiful Villa in nature with plenty of Hammocks and rest-areas to relax in, or meditate, or watch the monkeys and birds…. and it’s right on the Ganges so you can jump straight in… There’s also a stream and small waterfall that run straight through the property where you can bathe too.
The rooms are beautiful and tastefully decorated and each one has a private bathroom with hot shower. And filtered water and wifi is provided too. And the food is truly exceptional here… Mealtimes are a delicious highlight!
Rishikesh is also a great departure point if you are hoping to explore some other parts of India after… Many onward transport options are available, whether you want to visit the Dalai Lama in Dharamshala, or the burning grounds of Varanassi or the source of the Ganges at Gangotri. The options are endless.
Taking a yoga teacher training in Rishikesh is very special indeed. Even the surrounding mountains vibrate with the magic of thousands of years of Yoga and Spiritual practice. We absolutely love it here and we know that you will too….treat yourself to the best!
Little Cove Resort, Goa, India
If you’re wanting warm ocean, sun, sea, sand and to dive deep into your Yoga practice then this is the training and resort for you….Little Cove Yoga Holiday Retreat Goa is a breathtaking beach-front yoga resort set under the coconut palm trees on Cola Beach in South Goa, India….
