Anand Prakash Yoga Ashram - Tehri Garhwal

Welcome to Anand Prakash Yoga Ashram, Tapovan, Rishikesh.This ashram was founded by Yogrishi Vishvketu ji and Chetana Panwar, and had its opening ceremonies on Deepavali, Nov. 9, 2007.  The vision for the ashram is to create a comfortable, nurturing sanctuary for spiritual seekers from around the world where they will have safe, clean food and water, and guidance for their yogic journey. 

The ashram also promotes Akhanda Yoga, the holistic, non-sectarian yoga teachings of its founders, in which students are encouraged to practice all aspects of the diverse tradition of yoga: satkarma, asana, pranayama, Vedic mantra, kiirtan, and meditation, as well as to contemplate various traditions in yoga philosophy: Vedanta, Tantra, Samkhya and Classical Yoga.

The ashram is located in the dynamic international village of spiritual seekers in an area of Rishikesh called Tapovan, about 250 kms. north or Delhi.  The Ganges river valley here is surrounded by mountains on three sides, and it is considered the gateway to the Himalayas.  Tapovan is an ideal location for yoga sadhana; it is named for its heritage as a site for spiritual disciplines.  Tap, represents tapas, the practice of spiritual disciplines. 

Van means forest.  So, Tapovan is the forest of the yogis.  Anand Prakash is on a headland above the banks of the Ganges, one of the first open spaces down river from the source of the Ganges.  The wind and all the prana carried from the Himalayas whistle down the river valley and blow out over this headland invigorating the ashram area.

Classes : Yoga classes are twice a day – 6AM -7:45Am and 4PM - 5:45PM. We teach a flowing sequence of postures interwoven with pranayama, mantra and concluding with relaxation and a brief meditation. We call our approach to yoga classes Akhanda Yoga meaning holistic or unbroken tradition. For more information on Akhanda Yoga, please visit the About Us page. We ask that all residents attend the yoga classes when staying at the ashram to preserve the atmosphere of yoga sadhana.

Agni Hotra (fire puja) is held daily at 8:30AM, before breakfast, and you are welcome to attend. The fire puja is an ancient ritual described in the Vedas and performed with Vedic mantras. Ghee and herbs (samagri) are offered into the fire by participants to send out aromatic prana to the surrounding area, and also as a metaphor for our offering to the fire any outmoded habits, emotions or thought patterns that we wish to be transformed by the light of clarity. The vibration of the mantras also purify the energy pathways and vibrate the brain to allow for new neural pathways to be developed. Yoga is a process of removing that which prevents us from seeing things clearly – fire puja is one of the many aspect of this yoga tradition.
