7 Day Retreat,Yoga & Meditation in Rishikesh, India

If your soul is calling out for self-care and self-healing, this restorative and transformative week-long residential yoga retreat is for you. Meditation, yoga nidra, and daily asana practice balanced with a nourishing yogic diet will renew your sense of balance and wholeness.

A Retreat for Yoga Lovers

In the wake of COVID19, travel is currently restricted to India. If you are looking for a yoga retreat, please join us on our Zoom sessions online for a chance to bring more peace, tranquility, and balance into your days.

Yoga is a spiritual practice. It is a path to self-discovery and self-realization. The path of yoga offers us a profoundly deeper connection to ourselves, and this can be cultivated through mindful living. On a yoga retreat at Punyah Yoga, you can expect to fully immerse yourself in yogic living, where you will practice on and off the mat, surrounded by a loving community that will serve you as a kind and compassionate support system. Without your daily distractions, habits, or patterns, and admit the sacred energy of the Himalayas and the Ganges River, you will discover a new way of perceiving the world both inside and outside of yourself.

If you have a body, you can do yoga and do a yoga retreat! There are no prerequisites to join us for a yoga retreat. All are welcome.

Highly Recommend for those looking for a serious TTC

"If you are looking for a TTC in classic Ashtanga this should be your choice. The teachers are the best you can find and very inspiring. It is an intense course but so much fun and will make you grow in all aspects of your life. I highly recommend this school for those looking for a serious TTC."

Alicia Smith Iresjö

Inspired Me

"I did a 100-hour TTC, and loved the experience. The teachers have deep knowledge and were generous to share it with me. I really enjoyed the quality of the course, it improved my understanding of yoga and inspired me to go deeper in my practice. I’d be happy to go there again both for the TTC and for asana practice as well!"
