Retreat Testimonials

“I would have no hesitation in recommending the Yogaveda India Retreat.

We found that the time in each place was just right , not too long in Delhi, enough shopping time in Rishikesh (a shopper’s Paradise) and then a wonderful 5/6 days in the mountain retreat.

This place, up high in the mountains, had clear air and clean water, tasty veg. grown on the property in rich brown fertile soil, this veg was used in our superb tasty meals. All the dairy products used were from the retreats own dairy herd.

Our accom. was comfortable, each little chalet had a verandah for us to sit out on and read, and our own electric kettle for chai making whenever we chose.

The yoga rooms and the massage room were especially beautiful, painted tastefully with plenty of props. We had yoga twice each day, with time in between to explore.

There were great walks to be taken, down, down, down to the Ganges below or up, up, up further into the mountains.

Nikki and Leah, experienced in this north India retreat, ran it like clockwork without any strain or stress, everything dovetailed into place, they were ably assisted by their ‘Man on the Ground’, who with local knowledge and expertise added the final touches, he was great on detail. It was all thoroughly enjoyable.” – Peter Fowlie, 26 January 2017

“The meaning of the name ‘Rishikesh’ is lord of the senses ‘Vishnu’ and it certainly lived up to its name during Yogaveda’s 2017 Yoga & Ayurveda Retreat. This small community in Northern India is located at the foothills of the Himalayas and is both the spiritual home of yoga and the white water rafting capital of the world.

The chosen Resort in Rishikesh has excellent facilities and views so breathtakingly stunning that photographs would never be able to truly capture the essence of this magical setting, with the low lying morning mist clinging to the lush green hills and the early morning ringing of Ashram bells. The colour, clarity and cleanliness of the Ganges is an extraordinary experience and waking to the sound of it flowing by each morning creates a sense of inner peace that is carried through out the day.

Balance of spirit, mind and body was achieved with twice daily Yoga with Nikki and an Ayurvedic treatment of pure bliss with Leah. The aromas of delicious vegetarian food and masala tea still invoke a sense of longing weeks after the retreat has ended.

Attend the nightly Aarti, spend a day on a jungle excursion, challenge yourself with white water rafting, visit mountain Temples and pay homage to the ashram where the Beatles composed the White Album.

Reward yourself in 2018 by rejuvenating your energy levels, replenishing your soul and reconnecting with your inner self with a retreat to Rishikesh. The experience is everything and more.” – Heather Thomson, 3 January 2018
