To turn their dream to reality they turned their backs on corporate careers and with single-focused mind and unprecedented zeal travelled across India and abroad searching for a location that would express the true essence of Adhiroha. Finally they found the ideal place for their school in Rishikesh the birthplace of Yoga, where people have visited for centuries to be healed and to find rest and rejuvenation. During this journey they have come to realize that there are many styles of yoga and a great number of yoga schools.

Adhiroha CSO (Chief Security Officer)

Our gentle Giant, furry four legged angel and canine mascot “Buddha” is very vital part of Adhiroha. Always willing to please and extremely friendly you will often find him greeting you when you arrive. He enjoys the company of human and other canine friends and more often than not you will find him stretched languorously in the office space or anywhere within the premises.
