Returnig from Rishikesh to Delhi  (1 Answer)

Thank you for all the replies about the way to Rishikesh. We decided to take a taxi (an a/c SUV). We found a very good site - They can also make train booking (US$10 fees), but they accept paypal that makes the transition easy and safety.
We are now plannig our way back to Delhi - We want to be there only for a day, and we wanna a good tip : to take one of the "day tours" or to go specifically to one place like Humayn's Tomb, Akshardham or any other site?? The 2nd thing we will arrive to Delhi at 6th of april and will need a hotel (our fligth will be at 8th in early mornig). It's better to take a near airport hotel??? THank for all VT members who help each other. Namaste

Yoga in rishikesh  (12 Answers)

Hi there...

My question is regarding studying yoga in rishikesh or somewhere else in north india that you might recommend.
I'm arriving in new delhi around the 22nd of september with my husband and we're planning on spending a couple of months traveling in the north. I would like to spend about 4 weeks doing a teacher training course in an ashram...have noticed that there are many so can anyone recommend one from their experience?
Also what sort of money am i looking at spending? I have heard that most include accomodation, food, and sometimes they have cooking classes...

Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated! Thank you for taking the time to share your knowledge.
