The Ashram is located in one of the most beautiful surroundings below the Himalayan hills and right above the River Ganges.

The comfortable single and double rooms along with modern amenities offer a splendid view of the surrounding majesty.
Typically the one week yoga retreat will combine some yoga sessions with meditation classes. You could also ask for yoga guidance and join the lectures on yoga. You will be expected to participate in Ashram life including maintaining the silent meditation time. Participating in Karma Yoga will heal your spirit and will give you insights about yogic life if you wish to take up yoga more seriously. You will find that at the end of the week you will feel totally relaxed and renewed.
If you fancy a bit of tourism then the Ashram could help you to plan treks into the Himalayas or go river rafting. Typically you could just wander into the interesting markets or walk on the beach of the Ganges in the evenings and watch the performance of the mystical Ganga Aarti at Parmarth Niketan Ashram.
