Yogic culture and spiritual studies have spread all over the world, calling to millions who have learned and reaped from its benefits. This two hour two in Rishikesh offers travelers a true yogic experience as they will visit one ashram to another, learning about authentic Yogic culture from these centers of spiritual studies. Beginning with a meet up with your guide, you first head to Sivananda Ashram, which is perfectly situated in beautiful, natural surroundings, making it incredibly conducive to meditation and tranquility. After some time here, you then proceed to Yoga Niketan for some spiritual learning. You'll discover the background of Yogic culture, and life lessons from one of the great Yogis of the 20th century. This is followed by a visit to the Vanprastha Ashram, known for its sprawling garden and beautiful location next to the sacred River Ganga, and then the Swarg Ashram, which is considered as one of the biggest epicenters of Yogic culture and meditation, with its hundreds of rooms. Parmarth Niketan Ashram is your next stop; located in the base of the Himalayas themselves, just by the banks of the Ganges, it's a special location in many ways, and the largest in Rishikesh, playing host to celebrations in Yogic culture. As you walk down the banks of the sacred Ganges, reflect on yogic lessons learned, as well as enjoy the peacefulness of the surroundings before heading to the Beatles Ashram, named after the same famous English rock band that had come to visit and learn Transcendental Meditation, and thus made history in the location. Learn about the same form of meditation that gave the band their most productive songwriting stretch in their career, and find peace from the stresses of life. Your final stop is at the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's Ashram, to discover the band's artwork and explore the history and stories behind the Ashram. It's a day of history, culture, meditation, and learning about ancient techniques that bring peace and balance into your life.
