Ongoing year round
The price of these cheap yoga holidays Rishikesh Yog Peeth is usually 350 USD per week, that’s only about $50 per day. And unlike many less expensive yoga retreats you DO get a private room! Not only that but also a private bathroom and shower, thats almost unheard of at this price! I will say though that this retreat center is not for everyone. Discipline is highly valued here. Your attendance is mandatory at all the classes and lectures. To top it off for this cheap yoga holiday, you are a tight highly structured schedule. For good reason though, the less decisions you make the more you can dive into the yoga! They do focus more on the teacher training and it's nice to see that unlike many teacher trainings where people are spending 30,000-$40,000 usd this one is reasonably priced. They offer 200 and 300 hour courses. The classes are a little big but everyone seems to be very good at supporting eachother.
There is a big focus on the spiritual side instead of just focusing on the physical asanas, which I think is wonderful!
They have 4 locations in India and many planned and included in cost excursions and activities like: trekking in the Himalayas. There are also some activities to choose from to enjoy during your free time, like river rafting or sightseeing Rishikesh. The locations were picked for the ideal yoga retreat, quiet and tucked away but close enough to everything you could possibly need during your stay. Most people are return visitors and I think that speaks very highly to the quality of this place.
Reviews for Rishikesh Yog Peeth: Outstanding is the word I'd use to describe all the dirt I could dig up on this cheap yoga holiday. They're sitting at a 4.9 out of 5. Its weird that every single review was glowing positive, except for one that complained class sizes were too big, teachers were overworked and owner is too much of business man.... I sense there was another agenda behind that review because every single other review was extremely pleased with the quality of instructions, accommodations were clean and comfy, atmosphere was very very friendly and welcoming. Many many people this place changed their life for the better.
Of all the wonderful things people had to say about this place, the most remarkable to me was the amount of reviews that said they had made life long friendships with individuals from all walks of life! Its definitely going on my list of MUST TRY retreats! Just to see if the reviews are true! Hahaha:)
