Ashram

ashram

We are located in Tapovan, Rishikesh, which is the yoga capital of the world. Adhiroha is a place to relax, rejuvenate and re-balance. It is an amalgamation of serene spiritual yoga ashram environment with a professional training institutional approach. We strive to keep the energy of the ashram pure and untainted so that the training in yoga practice brings about spiritual transformation. Therefore, try to come with an open mind, soft heart and a strong spine. Our property is built in a 3 acre land in the middle of forest surrounded by mountains and at a walkable distance to river Ganges, Tapovan market and Laxman Jhula (Hanging Bridge). Our yog-shala, meditation cave, lecture area, dining space, and surroundings are very unique and exquisitely built. We are blessed with a brook inside the property which gives continuous meditative sound. Adhiroha has a 60 feet long natural pool which is right next to our dining and juice bar area. Visiting and staying at our Ashram will be a life-changing experience for nature lovers and serious yoga practitioners. The impression of living in Adhiroha will be enduring for the rest of your life. It is the biggest teacher training school in Rishikesh (Tapovan/Laxman Jhula/Ramjhula). All facilities like public and private transport, shopping, local market, cafes, restaurants, ATMs, Organic stores, scenic tourist spots, medical and hospitals are available at a close vicinity.

Food

At Adhiroha, we strictly follow Vegetarian diet. Food will be provided thrice a day (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner) with special Adhiroha herbal tea.. The food provided at the Ashram is delicious – Ayurvedic meals. However, we do try our best to arrange alternative food requirements such as lactose intolerant or gluten intolerant.  The food we consume is very significant in the yoga practice. Therefore, we make a conscious effort in choosing the ingredients such as fruits and vegetables as organic as possible. It is also important how it is prepared.
