Meet The Facilitators

 
Venue   Vinyasa Yoga School

Vinyasa Yoga School is located in in the heart of Laxman Jhula near Sant Sewa Ashram in Rishikesh. The school is cradled between the vast Himalayan mountain range and the magnificent Ganga river. It is a true private sanctuary in order to retreat inwards, reflect, and recharge after an intense day of class. Rooms are private and very comfortable. Rest assured! To ensure that you feel comfortable in your home away from home, there is 24/7 security camera monitoring system, as well as a friendly front-desk reception.

In general, the school recommends flying into the airport in New Delhi, as it is the closest international airport to Rishikesh. You can also fly into Dehradun, a domestic airport that is much closer to Rishikesh (although it is generally much more expensive to fly there.) The school can provide a private taxi from the Delhi airport to Rishikesh if you get in touch prior to arrival.

Food

Students will receive three yogic, vegetarian home-cooked meals each day of the training. Every meal is made with love – prepared from fresh, local ingredients, including vegetables from the on-site garden. Chai is served during all tea breaks. The school aims to support you in making long lasting changes in personal habits, and to embrace food choices that will bring you to a new level of spiritual, mental and physical health and happiness. 

Meals are unlimited. Generally, you’ll get a plate of food with all of the various vegetarian Indian dishes appropriate for breakfast, lunch, or dinner (according to a yogic diet.) Chefs will always make a surplus of food for students, which is usually placed on the dinner tables for students to grab from if they want more of a particular dish. You can also always feel free to talk to our kitchen staff if you’d like your meals prepared a certain way or if you’d like extra food.

Dairy products are common in the culture of India’s food – so while meals are vegetarian, the use of dairy would disqualify them from being strictly vegan. However, many students have special requests and/or allergies, and meals can be made to suit students needs. It is almost impossible to find meat (and alcohol) in Rishikesh. Rishikesh is a holy city, and the focus is on healthy vegetarian meals.

  Rishikesh, India

Rishikesh is the ideal destination for yoga lovers with different shalas and ashrams scattered across the city. Located at the base of the Himalayas, the city features a remarkable view of the mountains with the Ganga an energetic river ebbing at its feet.


Lakshman Jhula is actually an adjoining bridge across the Ganga, along the old route to the holy shrines of Badrinath and Kedarnath. The Jhula has now become one of the most visited tourist spots of Rishikesh, not simply because of its ancient origin and religious sanctity, but also because of the grand temples and wonderful local market that have come to be developed around it. A thirteen story temple, called Terah Manzil, near the Lakshman Jhula, is very popular amongst visitors. The top floor of this temple gives a wonderful view of the surroundings.

Jolly Grant airport at Dehradun is the nearest airport to Rishikesh which is approximately 35 kilometres away. Popular carriers like Air India, Spice Jet and Jet Airways often have daily flights from New Delhi. Apart from Delhi, there is a flight from Lucknow to Dehradun as well. To commute to Rishikesh via land, there are tongas, taxis and rickshaws available. Whereas from other cities and states, buses and trains are operated by state transport corporations and private operators. One can also hire private vehicles to get there.
