Rishikesh, at the foothills of the mighty Himalayas, has been revered as the world capital of yoga. The reason for this is that the sages who used to practice austerities in the Himalayas would come down periodically to establish their bases in the hostile months.
Also, pilgrims who wished to go on their pilgrimage deeper into the Himalayas would make this their starting point. This confluence has also lead to the development of several ashrams, and Rishikesh came into being as the Ashram town.
Over the years, Rishikesh has grown into a small but bustling town. Yet, the ashram areas give the ambience of a small town village with tremendous spiritual energy. The mighty Ganges river flows by and the evenings are a delight to be on the banks with several aarti (lamp) ceremonies being held along the banks.
Ajarya Yoga Academy takes care to include three fresh meals everyday within the course fee, so that students do not have to worry about where to plan their next meal.
Food is strictly vegetarian in line with the principles of yoga and sufficient variety is added, so that participants can experience different vegetables and fruits of the season. Food is fresh and made in hygienic conditions, which minimizes the occurrence of sickness. This single emphasis on food sets Ajarya Yoga Academy distinctively apart as a choice for a study stay.
There are also several eateries in Rishikesh. Food available is vegetarian in keeping with the spiritual leanings of the town and you will rarely find any alcohol. All of this makes for a unique cultural experience which delights most visitors to this place, including Westerners and people from all over the world.
There are other activities that visitors find truly enjoyable about Rishikesh. These include river rafting on the Ganges, camping by the riverside, and short as well as longer mountain treks.
You can experience a variety of treatments at the world-famous Ananda Spa, located in the mountains. There is also an Ayurveda and holistic healing center within the premises for those who may like to experience Ayurveda massages and treatments. These are available for an additional fee.
