Yoga Retreat in the foothills of the Himalayas with Hilary Brown and Antar Khirad

Alchemy of Bliss: Retreat yourself in the footsteps of the Himalayas

At the footsteps of the Himalayas, near the holy river Ganga, Rishis International Retreat Center is situated close to Rishikesh: the yoga capital of India with all its rituals and Indian markets full of colours and culture.

At a walking distance from the famous Shiva Temple “Neelkanth”, Rishis International provides you a royal Indian jungle experience along with magnificent stays in luxurious rooms and eco-cottages. Wake up to the sound of waterfalls and singing birds, where each day we will enjoy nurturing hatha or soul flow vinyasa yoga followed by bliss.

  • Beautiful luxury in jungle surroundings, wake up to a natural flowing
  • Rejuvenate, meditate and to go deeper in
  • Explore your dharma, receive
  • Disconnect from the internet, connect with yourself.

The bliss program

Enjoy daily yoga (2 times a day): Antar & Hilary will share the daily yoga lessons, so you will practice traditional hatha yoga and breath-based vinyasa styles. In addition, we will be sharing more depth around seldom offered integrative practices to awaken your senses, with pranayama, meditation, writing, contemplate, walk, sing or even dance – in some form each day. Silence will be requested at specific moments each week to let you soak into yourself. Once a week we will take an (optional) excursion to sites around Rishikesh.
