When you are in Rishikesh, one can forget about yoga, and one cannot miss the magnificent Patanjala Yoga Kendra yoga centre, established in 1993. Located in the Muni-ki-Reti area of Rishikesh, it’s a sight to cheer next to the holy waters of Ganga.
The yoga taught here is Iyengar Yoga, guided by none other than the world-renowned Shri Guruji, B.K.S. Iyengar. This guy’s method is based on the Indian tradition of Yoga, focusing on strength, stamina, flexibility, balance, concentration, and meditation. And if that’s not enough, you can attend lectures on the Bhagavad Gita and witness a daily aarti.
The ashram not only offers peace and tranquility but also helps you attain it through yoga, meditation, and spiritual talks.
Moving on, This ashram is in the proximity of Rishikesh, the ancient place of pilgrimage, neighbouring Sivanandanagar, and the famous Lakshman Jhula. The scenic riverside view with pristine nature all around is a treat for your eyes. Spending a couple of hours here is sure to leave you feeling refreshed. Participate in religious activities, meditate to calm your soul, and try yoga to heal yourself therapeutically. And if you’re lucky enough to witness evening aarti, that’s a spectacle you will remember for a long time.
