Introduction of specialized retreat for Women
We had been receiving several requests from our sisters for a shorter duration program which does not require past yoga experience. We are happy to hear from you and are glad to announce that starting this September, we are launching ‘The Shakti Retreat’ – a specialized 4 days and 3 nights of ultimate wellness getaway that brings an opportunity for our busy mothers and sisters to take a break from their daily chores and have a time just for themselves. The women’s health and wellness ‘Shakti’ retreat, organized at our Yoga Academy in Rishikesh in the august company of Holy Mother Ganga, has multiple sessions for energy reading and chakra alignment, emotional freedom techniques, introduction to Yoga and basic yogasanas, pranayama & meditation, and of-course, a session for discussions and venting out (if need be).

A seeding event for introducing young generation to the many benefits of yoga had been organized.
