Venue Highlights

The yoga teacher training program in Rishikesh is conducted in an ashram. The Sri Ved Niketan ashram is blessed with the eternal grace of Vishwa guru, Sri Maha Madaleshwarji, who stayed and meditated there for years and started the culture of yoga in Rishikesh. The sage brought in positive vibes, with yoga and meditation, to the recesses of the ashram. It attracted thousands of yogis to come and find peace in the boundaries of the ashram. Collectively uniting people in the ashram, many people have found themselves on the spiritual path while working or staying here.

Located right on the bank of Ganges with the Himalayan range in the background, the ashram is a pious place with spacious surroundings. Offering a legitimate ashram like view, lifestyle and food choices, Sri Ved Niketan is a gem on the map of Rishikesh. The vastness of the place allows one to choose the surroundings for self-discovery either in silence or by mingling with a group of charged yogis, which may make it a destination worth revisiting when one returns to Rishikesh.


A comfortable abode for seeking souls, the ashram offers a clean, cozy and a refreshing stay in Rishikesh. The rooms are quaint, well maintained in an ashram like set up and come with modern facilities. They are an escape from the demands of the city life.

Ashrams usually represent a return to a simpler way of living, which is very different to a hotel. Generally there is a more communal atmosphere and often an expectation that guests will pitch in with whatever needs doing.
