13 Days - 12 Nights
Let's marvel at temples, forts and palaces, go shopping for unique gifts, ride elephants, eat and learn how to cook traditional Indian cuisines, experience yoga and tranquility and be consumed by all that is Indian.
With this Indian heritage tour, you are given the opportunity to do a little sightseeing before your arrival at the yoga and wellness retreat at Rishikesh. This is the perfect way to relax and find balance in your life, as well as to see some of the more famous sights that India has to offer.
Many wellness trips in India allow you to partake in Ayurveda, which sees medicine and diet as complementary (rather than separate) entities. If you are experiencing a particular health problem, Ayurveda will help you to identify activities, conditions, herbs and foods to get healthy again.
Our private guided yoga tours to Rishikesh take you to the Ananda Resort, located in the tranquil foothills of the Himalayas. There are a variety of different rooms to choose from, each offering stunning views of the Palace and valley.
The spa itself has a focus on the traditional Indian practices of yoga and Ayurveda (which is why many people choose luxury tours of India in the first place), as well as a menu of more than 80 body and beauty treatments. Ananda yoga teaches the techniques of the Bihar School (also known as Satyananda).
The food enjoyed on Rishikesh yoga tours is fresh and natural – think whole grains, fruits and vegetables, lean proteins and low fat dairy products. On luxury India tours, you will also learn how to prepare this food at home.
Rishikesh tours also offer guests ample opportunity to experience health and wellness activities, including: a gym, sauna, swimming pool, golf course, cooking classes, Vedanta lectures, treks and nature walks.
