Why to join a Yoga Retreat in Rishikesh?

Rishikesh is located on the banks of the holy river Ganga, or ‘Ganga Ma’ which means ‘mother Ganga’ how locals call her. This makes the destination a very special and attractive location to tune in and relax. Surrounded by the foothills of the Himalayas, despite your daily Yoga practice, there are many things to see in and around Rishikesh. Sacred Temples with stunning hill stations, caves, waterfalls and river rafting are only a few of them.
