Learn More About The Yoga Retreats Held At Punyah Yoga

Yoga retreats are designed to give you adequate tools to regain energy, boost your health and reduce stress and anxiety.

Balance your body and mind, detoxify, tune-in with your true nature and give yourself a chance to try out the real yogic life. Located at the picturesque banks of the Ganga River, the holy town of Rishikesh (otherwise called as the world capital of Yoga) is the perfect destination for enjoying the combined benefits of gentle Yoga practice, Pranayama, Meditation and healing Ayurvedic Diet. This is what we want to offer you at our weekly Yoga retreats with Punyah Yoga.

Apart from daily Asana practice, learning techniques on breathing, meditation sessions and Yoga Nidra classes, you will also have a chance to learn about the basics of Ayurveda during the retreat. More than a simple system of treating illness, Ayurveda is defined as the ‘Science of Longevity’ — the sacred knowledge of life. It offers a body of wisdom designed to help people stay spirited while realising their full human potential. Providing guidelines on ideal daily and seasonal routines, diet, behaviour and the proper use of our senses, Ayurveda reminds us that health is the balanced and dynamic integration between our environment, body, mind, and spirit.

This is a unique opportunity to experience amazing journey of self-discovery, inner peace and deep relaxation. Allow yourself to calm your senses and combat the negative influence of our usual modern city life with us. Like others before, you may see it to be a life-changing experience.
