The annual International Yoga Festival is
organized by Parmarth Niketan Ashram in Rishikesh,
This year we present a truly International Yoga Festival grounded in the authentic origin of Yoga. Practise and learn from masters from the Traditional Yoga Lineages from India, as well as masters of International well known yoga schools & styles.
During this one-week Festival, you will have
the opportunity to participate in over 60
hours of Yoga classes from world-class Yoga
teachers practicing multiple styles of Yoga
including Kundalini Yoga, Power Vinyasa
Yoga, Iyengar Yoga and Kriya Yoga.
The participants will also be blessed with
the presence, satsang and divine words of
revered saints and spiritual masters from
within India, including H.H. Pujya Shankaracharya Swami Divyanand Teerthji, H.H. Pujya Sri Sri Ravi Shankarji, H.H. Pujya Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji, H.H. Radhanath Swamiji and H.H. Pujya Mooji.
Yoga is not merely for our bodies, but
rather Yoga is for our bodies, minds, hearts
and souls. Yoga literally means "Union" -
union of breath with the body, union of the mind
with the muscles, and most importantly union of
the self with the divine. Yoga is not a
religon. It does not require you to believe
in a certain God or chant certain mantras.
Yoga is an ancient science which leads to
health in the body, peace in the mind, joy
in the heart, and liberation of the soul.
The International Yoga Festival explores the
eight limbs of Yoga and how they apply to
our lives whether we consider ourselves Yoga
students or not.
Please join us as we breathe in the sights
and wonders of India and meet one another on
this path of discovery and awakening.
