    Why Choose this Retreat?

    When you climb these mountains, or just sit on a peak, you get this feeling of becoming one with the mountain. You feel like embodying the stability, equanimity, power of silence, and inner resilience of these mountains and feel trust in life in the universe.

    The mountains reconnect us with our essence, our humanity, and humbleness; the fact we are all interconnected, all part of one universe, and that there is something much bigger than us. Going into the mountains is a call to your soul, a journey of liberation, and often life- changing. And this is exactly why pilgrims, spiritual seekers, and yogic masters, from all times and cultures have been called to retreat in the Himalayas. For over 1000’s years, pilgrims have described a journey into the Himalayas as pure medicine for the soul. With all the yogic practices of asana, meditation, and kundalini, you will explore the Himalayas with all their beauty.

    The memory will keep you inspired and guide you your whole life until the last breath. So, come & get ready to immerse in the life of a yogi with Yoga in the Himalayas and get to know the true you; the happy you. The calmly flowing river Ganga, storytelling spectacular mountains, peacefully replete destinations, and God-gifted nature is calling you for a rejuvenating holiday! Yoga Retreat at our yoga school in India not only means stretching, exercising, and so on; indeed, it means an opportunity to explore the vibrant culture & beauty of the Land of Gods, “Rishikesh”.

    - Many yogis describe the Great Himalayas as the closest you can come to God. It’s here in the vast expansiveness and surrounded by infinite horizons that mankind can touch the deepest essence of his heart, the divinity that we all are. And even now, 1000’s years later this is what our students, religious or not, express when immersed in these mountains. They experience something sacred, something so pure and still, yet so fulfilling and liberating. It's a feeling of coming home and feeling part of something bigger, a higher force that fills with love and divine joy. At every step, you’ll find Rishikesh as a destination to throw away all your worries, problems, and issues. The ringing bells of ancient temples, the chanting of sacred mantras, the happiness in the eyes of people, and the taste in the flavours of Rishikesh will definitely leave their mark on your heart and lure you again & again to come to this incredible city. A city with an awestruck beauty seems like it is specially created by God to let you explore the wonderful life of peace and wisdom.

One can see the reflection of the majestic Chaukhamba on the crystal clear waters of the lake which is an awe-inspiring sight indeed.

    Legend of Deoria Tal is known as the lake from where Lakshya asked Pandavas questions on life. According to Mahabharat, Once when Pandavas were in the Banbasa fillings Thirsty and tired Yudhisthira told Bhima to look for a place where they could bring water. Sahadev went and tried to drink the water. At the time Yakshya stopped Sahadeva and asked him to answer his questions which Sahadeva denied and thus died the very moment he tried to gulp water. The same thing happened to Nakula, Arjuna, and Bhima respectively. Finally, when Yudhisthira came, he answered all questions of Yakshya before drinking the water.

    Happy with Yudhisthira, Yakshya asked Yudhisthira to choose one of his brothers to be alive and Yudhisthira choose Nakula. To Yakshyas bewilderment, Yudhisthira replied that though Bhima is strong and Arjuna is the top in arrow shoot, he would choose Nakula to do just towards their second (step) mother Madri.
    Happy with the answer, Yakshya gives life to all four Pandavas who were lying on the bank of the lake dead. Yakshya is the father of Yudhisthira. Deoria lake maintains its purity and amazing beauty to date.
