Yoga is more than just asana. It is a way of life which believes in the practice of simple, pure, conscious, healthy lifestyle habits that eventually result in positive benefits in abundance. It encourages a strong and a healthy reconnection with the self. It encourages everyone who practices it to live in the present, create self-awareness within the body and mind, lose ego, foster acceptance, and detach from external irritations.
The yogic lifestyle teaches one to free themselves from the unwanted mental noise which leads to unnecessary stress and in turn build and develop a healthy body. It helps an individual become free from pain and suffering. This is the end result after one has become completely present, physically and mentally pure, strong, and focused.
Rishikesh is known as the world capital of yoga. There is no better place to practice yoga than in this small town nestled in the foothills of the majestic Himalayan Mountains, in Northern India’s Uttarakhand state. The place is the starting point for many pilgrimages to ancient temples located in the Himalayas and has the largest number of yoga ashrams in the world. It is not surprising that people from all walks of life and from all over the world visit Rishikesh for learning yoga in the various ashrams that dot the town.
Located on the banks of the river Ganges, Rishikesh is an ideal retreat for self-growth and self-realization through the practice of the ancient art form. Its powerful spiritual energy attracts pilgrims, seekers, yoga practitioners, and international travelers. It is an ideal place for a beginner to embark on their yogic journey under the guidance of an experienced practitioner. The teacher can also help deepen the student’s knowledge further. People can share their experiences, wisdom, and knowledge of this ancient science with everyone who has a desire to deepen their understanding of life. The process also leads to the practitioner’s spiritual and personal growth.
There are many yoga retreat centers in Rishikesh. Here’s how you find the one of the best ones for yourself:
•Search online first. The best centers have websites that they update regularly and on which they share details of their programs, schedules, fees, accommodation and other details.
•Check the program properly. If you are a beginner, look at what the centers offer for people such as yourself. The best centers will teach you the basics and will also let you try and opt for advanced programs after the beginner course.
•Understand what you want to learn. The yoga centers have experienced teachers who can train you on all forms of yoga. But learning each type takes time and patience. The best centers will let you explore each type of yoga but will only train you on one type at a time.
•Yoga is not a monastic practice that requires you to renounce everything you hold dear. The best centers teach you to appreciate life more. They will take you on long hikes, river rafting expeditions, rock climbing courses and other activities that let you experience the inner strength in you.
•Email or call with your queries. The better ones will reply with relevant answers. They will also offer services such as airport or train station pick-up and drop, sightseeing trips and much more.
