Change of plan: instead of a retreat in Rishikesh in October 2023, we invite you to come with us to India in February/March 2024. Two options:

  • Ayurvedic retreat in Pondicherry, South India. February 18 – March 2. More information
  • Yoga teacher training in Rishikesh, North India. March 3 – 16. More information

Immersion in the yogic tradition of the Himalayas

Surya World invites you to Rishikesh for an unforgettable experience! Located at the foot of the Himalayas, Rishikesh is surrounded by exceptional natural beauty. The sacred waters of the Ganges flow through the city, providing the perfect setting for meditation and reflection.

A yoga retreat in Rishikesh brings a unique combination of tradition, quality teachings, pristine nature and holistic practice, making it an ideal choice for yoga enthusiasts looking to deepen their practice and re-energize. We offer a balanced program of personal practice (yoga postures, meditation etc.), cultural visits and time for yourself.
