Our Yoga Ashrams

Abhayaranya Yoga Ashram

Abhayaranya Yoga Ashram is situated on the foothills of the Himalayas surrounded by the forest adjacent to a village called Patna and just above the famous Patna waterfall. The ashram seems to be built in a remote location but in reality, it is just 5 km away from the Laxman Jhula market of Rishikesh

It is approximately a kilometer from the main road, and it takes around 20 - 30 min to hike up the mountain to reach here. This hike is one of the unique features of this center, just like the path of Yoga, which tends to be difficult to start with but rewarding at the end.

The path is surrounded by dense greenery and many local and migratory birds in the vicinity to be heard and seen.

Jhanvi Yoga Ashram

Jhanvi Yoga Ashram is situated in Rishikesh near the bank of the holy river Ganga and adjacent to the Rajaji National forest. Ashram has both, a traditional part where sanyasis (sage) live in their simple cottages which they call home as well as a modern building for guests to stay in a natural yet modern ambiance.

What strikes the visitors is the quietness cradled by the surrounding hills and the vast amount of open space. This quietness is broken by the chirping of the birds and muted sound of the holy Ganga flowing less than a kilometer away, reminding you of her presence.

Jhanvi Yoga Ashram has 52 spacious rooms with ensuite bathrooms having hot and cold running water round the clock. Each room can have single or double occupancy depending upon the request made by the participants.

Ashram also has an in-house dining room that can accommodate approximately 30-40 people. Similar to Abhayaranya, in terms of academic activities Jhanvi Yoga Ashram also has spacious Yoga halls, fully equipped Ayurveda treatment rooms, lots of open space, etc.
