Rishikesh

Overview

India has become a major destination for Yoga tourism.  The visit of the Beatles band to Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's Ashram in Rishikesh sparked a western interest in spirituality.  With many foreigners visiting India looking for authentic Yoga ashrams, yoga schools came up to train teachers and to promote Yoga.  This was taken further by the Ministry of Tourism  promoting India as a Yoga Tourism Hub.

Some of the places offering Yoga training include:

  • Yoga Study Centre

  • Rishikesh Yoga Teacher Training Center

  • Himalayan Yoga Academy

  • Rishikesh Yoga Retreats

  • Rishikesh Yog Peeth

  • The Bodhi Yoga Centre

An International Yoga Week is organized here every year by Uttarakhand Tourism in the first week of February.
