Rishikesh, known as the yoga capital of the world, is a town based in the beautiful foothills of the Himalayan mountains. The city is surrounded by hills of jungle, hidden temples and shrines, and the great river Ganges runs through the centre, creating a spiritually charged setting that has attracted yogis, spiritual seekers, gurus and sages since ancient times. Now, Rishikesh is home to the week long International Yoga Festival every March, and pilgrims and tourists still flock to the area which is abundant with ashrams, yoga and meditation classes. A dip in the Holy Ganges is said to purify and cleanse past karmas, and the air is charged with a spiritual energy conducive to meditation. Indeed, it is said that by meditating in Rishikesh, one can achieve ‘Moksha,’ which is liberation from the cycle of death and rebirth.
Jivan Chakra foundation is situated in Ram Jhula, in the Swarg Ashram area. Ram Jhula is dotted with shops, cafes, chai stands and yoga ashrams, the well known Parmarth Niketan being one of them. On rest days from our courses, a trip to browse the local stalls for shawls, incense, mala beads, and ayurvedic medicines, followed by a stop for chai or freshly squeezed juice by the river, is always welcomed. Inevitably you end up in conversation with fellow yogis and travelers at the local restaurants.
Aside from yoga and spirituality, Rishikesh is also a famous hub for adventure sports and outdoor activities including trekking, white water rafting, bungee jumping and camping. As such, you will never run out of activities to try during your stay here!
