The Ashram

 February 25

The holy city of Rishikesh (city of sages) is situated in the foothills of the Himalayas near the source of the river Ganges. It is the home of hundreds of ashrams or spiritual communities that have sprung up over the centuries dedicated to the service of humanity.  

Swami Veda's ashram, where we will be for nine full days and nights, is outside of the city on eight acres of beautifully tended gardens framed in the distance by the towering Himalayas. The cottages are sweet and simple and the program is full.

The yoga program begins at 5am with Hatha Yoga, 7am Pranayama and 7:30-8:30am Meditation. And that is just the start of the day! We are attending a special Yoga Nidra Conference with 200 other students from around the world.  More later....
