We will be staying at one of Rishikesh’s most pristine ashrams, where the best teachers will guide us through yoga, meditation, mantras etc. We will indulge in modesty, respect their rules of dress and behavior, learn about yoga, in a spiritual and fun way.

In Rishikesh, there are many options for trips, hikes, rafting, visiting the national park, or just enjoying the many caffes and restaurants. The river Ganges is pretty clean in this part, and you can take a bath in it. It is believed this will erase your karma. Rishikesh is known as the world capital of yoga, and it’s one of the holiest cities. It’s completely vegetarian – meat and alcohol are forbidden by law. There is also the iconic ashram, where in 1968 The Beatles stayed and meditated. It was one of their most productive periods. The ashram was named after them: The Beatles Ashram.

I organize yoga retreats in Slovenia, and lately I’ve been focusing on organizing yoga trips around the world as well. I acquired the necessary licences. As a huge travel lover, I have traveled around the world on my own or as part of my former job (flight attendant for Emirates Airlines). I have been to India many times and I feel at home in Rishikesh. In addition to yoga teacher recommendations, I will also advise you on where to eat best, how to bargain, how to dress and where to shop 🙂

My yoga retreats are known for their affordable prices, small groups, knowledge sharing and socializing, as well as their personal approach and sense of homeliness. My trips and retreats are not limited to Nush Yoga members, everyone who wants to spend time in good company, do something for themselves and learn something new is welcome.
