Location

Rishikesh, India

Tapovan area is full of meadows, streams and flowering plants and the meadows are considered as one of the best high altitude meadows in India. The exquisite setting on the fast-flowing Ganges, surrounded by forested hills, is conducive for meditation and mind expansion. In the evening, an almost supernatural breeze blows down the valley, setting temple bells ringing as sadhus, pilgrims and tourists prepare for the nightly ganga aarti - a fire offering or ritual performed on the Ganges.


Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi (DEL) is the international airport that is closest to the schools in Rishikesh and Dharamsala. From there, you have several options to get to Rishikesh. It is recommend to either take an additional flight from New Delhi to Dehra Dun (DED) or arrange for a taxi or bus for the final part of your journey.

Venue   Yoga Vidya Mandiram School
Yoga Vidya Mandiram School, Venue for 7 Day Yoga Nidra Retreat

All Yoga Teacher Training Courses and other Yoga Courses and Retreats are organized at that Yoga School in Rishikesh, India.  Dehradun’s Joly Grant Airport (DED)  is approximately a 15km away from the center. The school is situated in the magical city of Himalayan Mountain Valley. During your yoga training you will be accommodated in a peaceful environment which is perfectly suitable for the Yoga Teacher Training Courses, Yoga Retreats and other Yoga courses.

The venue is located in Swiss Cottage in the Tapovan region. It is like a tiny village in a valley surrounded by mountains and elevated and hidden from the chaotic and noisy streets of Tapovan, Laxman Jhula.  It is much more peaceful and quiet here, but still only 5-10 minutes walk from the main street. 


The school is close to the Holy Ganga and surrounded by the Himalayan mountains. The accommodation is equipped with balconies from where you can have a stunning and breath-taking view of the sacred Himalayan Mountains. There is a beautiful garden inside the campus where classes are often held for the students. As far as your day to day needs are concerned the shops, restaurants, ATM, health-care, and other daily needs all within walking distance.
