International Yoga Festival 2016: Rishikesh, India

Join Us For the International yoga festival at Rishikesh India!

International Yoga festival is held every year in scenically located Rishikesh where the Holy Ganges River comes down from the Himalayas. This annual festival is jointly organized by the Uttrakhand Tourism Development Board, GMVN and Parmarth Niketan Ashram in Rishikesh India.

During the 1 week long festival from 1 march to 7 March participants will get a chance to attend 60 hours of Yoga classes. Classes will be conducted by world renowned Yoga gurus who have excelled in multiple styles of Yoga including Power Vinyasa Yoga, Kundalini Yoga, Iyengar Yoga and Kriya Yoga.

Besides yoga sessions there will be speeches and spiritual discourses for participants by spiritual masters from within India and international prominent saints, including H.H. Pujya Shankaracharya Swami Divyanand Teerthji, H.H. Pujya Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji and others prominent Yogacharyas and spiritual gurus.

The international Yoga festival is about getting to know Eight Limbs of Yoga. In Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra, the eightfold path is called ashtanga, which literally means “eight limbs” (ashta=eight, anga=limb). These eight steps basically act as guidelines on how to live a meaningful and purposeful life.
