Meditation Retreats in India

Declutter your mind and experience the stillness within you.

Vinyasa Yoga Ashram’s newly launched 7 days meditation retreat is a great opportunity for a beginner to get in-depth knowledge of the ancient and sacred techniques of Dhyana. It is no secret that a regular and committed meditation practice can provide great benefits from reducing anxiety levels, lowering blood pressure and being more aware and accepting of the situations around and within us. Meditation doesn’t mean not thinking, instead acknowledging the thoughts and recognizing you are more than your thoughts and feelings and thereby gaining control over the monkey mind.


Why in Rishikesh?

Rishikesh is a spiritual hub and is an embodiment of India's ancient deep-rooted culture. There are many places around Rishikesh like vashisht cave and chuarasi kutiya where the spiritual vibrations are at their peak which are created by the deep sadhanas(meditation) performed by ancient sages. Also, it is a great place to immerse in the beauty of nature, as it is surrounded by majestic mountains and the holy Ganga river flowing across the town.

What makes it special with Vinyasa Yoga Ashram?

Meditation is when you are hundred percent involved in the task that you are doing at the present moment. This demands a lot of focus and attention. These 7 days retreat of mindful practice with our very experienced and knowledgeable Yog Gurus will help you with all the aspects of Yoga to gain a state of balance and learn how to respond, even after you return to the materialistic world.

Meditation Program in Rishikesh

Pratyahara

Pratya means to ‘withdraw’ and ahara refers to anything we ‘take in’. These objects are not just limited to the outside world but also to the noise of our internal chatters. This conscious withdrawal of energy from these senses is Pratyahara.

Dharna

The act of one-pointed attention on an internal or external object is Dharana. The word “Dharana” itself means “unbending concentration of the mind.” When one becomes indifferent to worldly matters, he is fit to proceed on the inner quest, enriching the mind through dharana.

Dhyana

Dhyana is a state of deep meditation. When we learn to deepen our concentration, we organically begin to traverse into the next limb of yoga: dhyana, meditative absorption. This practice of yoga brings keen awareness and moves us from a state of doing to being.

Samadhi

The state beyond duality & complete absorption is "Samadhi". It is an experience of infinite bliss which is the highest state of consciousness. It is about reaching a point where the self, the mind, and the object of meditation merge together into one.
