Co-founded by Yogrishi Vishvketu in 2007, the vision for Anand Prakash Yoga Ashram is to create a comfortable, nurturing sanctuary for spiritual seekers from around the world, where they will have safe food, clean water, and guidance for their yogic journey.

The ashram is the home of Akhanda Yoga®; holistic, non-sectarian teachings that do not teach the wisdom of only one lineage, but draw on multiple sources and voices. All aspects of yoga are included: satkarma, asana, pranayama, Vedic mantra, kirtan, and meditation, as well as various traditions in yoga philosophy: Vedanta, Tantra, Samkhya and Classical Yoga. The yoga ashram is also a charitable trust, supporting the local community.

The yoga ashram is located in Tapovan, a dynamic international village of spiritual seekers in Rishikesh, about 250 km north of Delhi. The Ganga (Ganges) River valley here is surrounded by mountains on three sides, and is considered the gateway to the Himalayas.

Tapovan (“forest of the yogis”) is an ideal location for your sadhana. Anand Prakash Yoga Ashram is on a headland above the banks of the Ganga, where the wind and all the prana carried from the Himalayas invigorate the area.

Yoga classes take place twice daily (except Sundays) at 6:00 am and 4:00 pm and are open to the public as well as ashram residents.

Two yoga halls allow visitors to practice during scheduled special events; the Patanjali Sadhana Hall (1300 square feet) on the lower level, and the main, Nataraj Yoga Hall (1900 square feet) on the third floor. The main hall has a wooden floor and a vaulted bamboo ceiling, creating a clean, authentic and natural space for yoga practice. Each hall is supplied with pillows, bolsters and yoga mats.

Ashram Activities & Facilities

There are 3 single rooms, 11 double rooms and 7 triple rooms. All of the rooms have single beds with bedding appropriate to each season, and an adjoining bathroom with a Western toilet.


The ashram has a Library and Sitting Room for you to enjoy during your stay. There is a selection of English, Japanese and Hindi books on yoga and spiritual fiction that you may borrow from the library to read in the sitting room, or in your own room. The library is open for one hour most days after lunch and most evenings after dinner.
