10 days Self-Blissing Yoga Retreats

“Retreat is a sacred journey of self-discovery, where the soul finds solace and the heart finds its way back to tranquility.”

Rejuvenate & Relax with our Yoga Wellness & Body detox Retreats in Rishikesh – India

Our spiritual relaxation based yoga holiday retreats are the most well-known throughout the world. They look to us as the Best Yoga Retreat in Rishikesh as HYR brings for everyone a Blissful experience of love & joy in this powerful aura of Himalayas & Ganges.

Known as Father of Yoga in the west, The Great Yoga Master Paramahansa Yogananda (author of the world renowned spiritual classic Autobiography of a Yogi) emphasises very much on having a retreat, he says,“Every person needs a retreat, a dynamo of silence where he may go for the exclusive purpose of being recharged by the Infinite.”

Rishikesh, hailed as the Yoga Capital of the World, is the gateway to the Himalayas and a spiritual epicenter on the banks of the Ganges, steeped in a rich yogic heritage. The history of yoga and spiritual penance runs deep in this region – many ancient Indian legends have taken place here. Our serene, lush green Retreat property by the Ganges, nestled in the Himalayan foothills, offers breathtaking views, serving as the backdrop for our courses and taking care of your accommodations, meals and everything.

Attended a healing workshop with Swami Rakesh in a beautiful setting in Somerset. Experienced a very powerful day surrounded and supported by beautiful people. If ever you get a chance or fancy travelling to Rishikesh in Indian Himalayas you will not regret it! Big love to one and all.

I met Swami Rakesh in the UK, at a festival he attended. I didn't really know what to expect when I entered the tent where treatments took place.I received an energy unblocking treatment... and it shook me to the core in an expected, profound, and meaningful way.Deep pressure was applied to my calves, which promptly brought up strong emotions. I ended up a sobbing mess, but a few minutes later, upon settling, I felt like a changed person; I entered the tent somewhat closed, insular, and uncomfortable, I left energized, open hearted and loving. I also received insight into my blockages and aspect of my life in the most sensitive, considerate and loving way. I felt seen, respected and loved.I am grateful and blessed to have crossed path with Swami Rakesh, and should the star align, I shall visit the Himalayan Yoga Retreat. Thank you again.

The retreat's location is truly exceptional – a tranquil and serene haven nestled along the sacred Ganges.

Beautiful session. Tough on the calves where my blockages are... this was discovered by another body worker several yrs ago, and also I have been experiencing increasingly common tight cramps there recently... so I wasnt surprised by this, but very good to know. Otherwise I felt a caring energy and touch. Just what I needed. Many thanks 🙏🙏🙏

I came here for Reiki Level 1 in August 2018. I can highly recommend this school to learn Reiki. Swami Prakash, the owner of the school is a very authentic yogi and is really dedicated to the yogic way of life. He is very humble and approachable and is happy to share everything he knows.For Reiki 1 you should plan 4 days. The training takes usually 3 days, for one person it is 1h in the morning and then 3h in the afternoon. The 1h in the morning is the attunement/initiation where Prakash will open you up and prepare you so that Reiki can flow through you and you can use it conciously to heal you or others. In the afternoon you will practice using Reiki for healing. I was there with my wife, so we were practice on each other. I can recommend coming with someone that you like so that you can practice on each other and Prakash can watch, correct and guide.This training is very hands-on! If you decide to go to a Reiki school you obviously have some kind of idea what it is but a workbook will be given to you that you can keep and use for studying. Reading through it a few times is totally enough for you to understand the theory. The book also includes the description of techniques in case you forget.Most of the training you will practice using Reiki. Prakash will guide you and share almost ten different techniques that you can use to heal yourself and others. He is always there for you in case you have questions. He wants to make sure that you fully understand the practical side of it so you can go on your own and practice. Which you need to do for 21 after the training.I am a yoga instructor and Reiki 1 has added so much value to my own practice, life and teaching. My wife and I practice on each other and use it for self-healing.If you are looking for Reiki training in the beautiful Himalayan mountains then this is the school you want to go to. They offer Reiki 1, 2 and master trainings. I can only speak for Reiki 1, but when I am back in Rishikesh I will stay for Reiki 2. An official certificate will be given to you after the training.Thank you Prakash for introducing us to Reiki and more into the yogic way of life with you vast knowledge. Love, Bre and Flo.
