"I never imagined the deeper knowledge and understanding within yogic philosophy that we were taught beneath the bare surface of my previous experience with yoga exercise. What a truly enlightened experience it was. Rishikesh is the perfect place to fully immerse yourself in these teachings and lifestyle."
