About This Center

The Anand Prakash Yoga Ashram is a registered charitable trust with a special focus on Yoga and education. We welcome you for an inspiring stay in this spiritual community!

The vision for the ashram is to create a comfortable, nurturing sanctuary for spiritual seekers from around the world where they will have safe, clean food and water, and guidance for their yogic journey. The ashram also promotes Akhanda Yoga, the holistic, non-sectarian yoga teachings of its founders, in which students are encouraged to practice all aspects of the diverse tradition of yoga: satkarma, asana, pranayama, Vedic mantra, kiirtan, and meditation, as well as to contemplate various traditions in yoga philosophy: Vedanta, Tantra, Samkhya and Classical Yoga.The ashram is located in the dynamic international village of spiritual seekers in an area of Rishikesh called Tapovan, about 250 kms. north or Delhi. The Ganges river valley here is surrounded by mountains on three sides, and it is considered the gateway to the Himalayas. Tapovan is an ideal location for yoga sadhana; it is named for its heritage as a site for spiritual disciplines. Tap, represents tapas, the practice of spiritual disciplines. Van means forest. So, Tapovan is the forest of the yogis. Anand Prakash is on a headland above the banks of the Ganges, one of the first open spaces down river from the source of the Ganges. The wind and all the prana carried from the Himalayas whistle down the river valley and blow out over this headland invigorating the ashram area.

      Beautiful prenatal YTT100

    One of the best course i’v ever done. Teachers who know what they are talking about and teach from their heart. Loving, accepting and nurturing athmosphere trough out the course. Time to integrate, time to rest, time to learn. Rest, digest, reproduce.
