Maharishi Yoga Peeth is located in Tapovan – Rishikesh, a dynamic international village of spiritual seekers about 250 km north of Delhi. Tapovan means forest of the yogis and is considered the gateway to the Himalayas. The Ashram is on a headland above the banks of the Ganga (Ganges River) and is surrounded by mountains on three sides.
With two spacious Yoga halls, a rooftop, and an expansive marble ceremony terrace, We offer a unique, in-house YTT experience. The Yoga Hall on the third level has a wooden floor and a vaulted bamboo ceiling, creating an authentic and natural space for Yoga and YTT sessions.
YTTC participants stay in neat, shared double rooms with two single beds and bedding appropriate to each season. Guest rooms all have night tables and shelves as well as an adjoining bathroom with hot water, shower head, and a Western toilet. Most rooms also have a balcony or shared terrace.
Maharishi Yoga Peeth has two Sitting Room for you to enjoy during your stay. The sitting rooms have sofas and armchairs and YTT participants often gather here to read or socialize during the free time until lights-out.
