It's an excellent place with great feeling. I went there with my wife. That was a very refreshing location near the Ganga beach and waterfalls in the foothills of the Himalayas. For me, yoga classes and treatments were absolutely relaxing. They offer 100 percent organic food. In the evening, they have live Tabla and sitar performance At dinner time which is very serene. Overall had a great time. Must be recommended.
I did an Ayurveda retreat for 3 days and again did choose a yoga retreat at Rishikesh in maa yoga ashram. I had one of the best experiences of my life at maa yoga ashram, learning yoga, getting Ayurveda treatments, and interacting with other inmates. This place was full of positive energy and Dr. Amrit Raj was very helpful in helping us practice yoga at the ashram.
It was an awesome experience in the maa Yoga ashram. The ashram is full of positive energy and waves. I stayed there for 1 week. And I am willing to come here again and again. Thanks, Yogi Dr. Amrit Raj for my pleasant stay.
I stayed there for 2 months, in the first month I did one-month-long yoga teacher training for 200 hours, it was an excellent experience though at that time I was only one student who really enjoyed individualized attention on me. After that I was enticed to attend the Ayurveda practitioner course, for me as a beginner it was a good experience. Also learned to make Ayurveda food, it was fun to be there. I being there in clean air and great food that initates my body to detox, and it happens naturally.
