Overview of the course
In addition to the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga classes, the theory classes and workshops, we will also participate in the routine of the ashram in which we stay.
These include morning meditation, fire ceremony, meals and an evening program with satsang, kirtan and meditation.
Sunday is free, and we’ll take you to some fun activities and sightseeing in Rishikesh.
In the last 2 days we will take you on a trip to the holy city of Varanasi.
The spiritual place Rishikesh is located at the holy Ganges at the foot of the Himalayas. Surrounded by forest and mountains, the city consists of a colourful collection of temples, ashrams and yoga schools. Every day, pilgrims from all over India come to take a holy bath in the Ganges and take part in the ceremonial ceremonies. Baba ji’s (holy men) sit in deep meditation on small rocks on the banks of the aisle, shining candles float on the river every evening for the fire ceremony, and Hindu prayers and mantras ring everywhere.
The lived spirituality is contagious and very quickly you become a part of it and develop an intensive yoga practice in a structured everyday life.
In this wonderful place is the equally beautiful little Anand Prakash Ashram.
Here all aspects of yoga are brought together into one unit.
The ashram provides a good setting for a healthy yogic lifestyle with a regular daily routine, delicious and vegetarian food, yoga classes and ashram events, such as the morning fire puja (prayer) and Kirtan chants.
