About Himalayan Yoga Retreat (HYR)
Himalayan Yoga Retreat (HYR) is an authentic guided retreat opportunity for the sincere seeker in the powerful Himalayan region by Swami Prakash. A hub for authentic spiritual practice, transformational teaching and research into ancient techniques of self-exploration, HYR delivers 200 Hours and 500 Hours of Yoga Alliance certified teacher-training courses, retreats and nature treks, guided meditations, chanting, prayer and healing sessions. The Himalayan region is considered a deity in the Hindu pantheon, and is empowered to support spiritual practices. The adage “less is more” holds true here. “Just as the difference between a living and a dead person is felt immediately, so it is with the Himalayas. Its vibration gives a natural push to spiritual development”.- Swami Prakash. "His first choice is for students to find mental and physical peace, to be fulfilled and happy, and on the search for the great spirit inside and all around."- Founder, HYR.
Join us in the sacred Himalayan mountains of Rishikesh, India for an holistic and transformative experience of yoga, meditation, and spiritual discovery. Your journey begins with the Himalayan spiritual master Swami Prakesh, who has spent 14 years following the path of India's ancient yogi masters learning techniques of meditation and yoga. At a young age he spent four winters of solitude in a remote cave deep in the Himalayas, overcoming fear and ego through extreme tests of survival and courage.
Himalayan Yoga Retreat offers a unique experience for the sincere spiritual seeker, with 200, 300, and 500 hour Yoga Alliance certified Yoga Teacher Training courses, Reiki level I-III certification, and 5 to 15 day yoga and meditation retreats. During your stay with us you can enhance your spiritual development and experience through optional treatments, including ayuvedic doctor consultations, emotional blockage treatments, and Reiki healings.
The Himalayan region is considered a deity in the Hindu tradition, and is empowered to support spiritual practices. “Just as the difference between warmth is felt immediately when stepping out from the shade on a sunny day, so it is with the Himalayas. Its vibration gives a natural push to spiritual development.
I strive for my students to find mental and physical peace, and to carry fulfillment and happiness into their lives after a stay at the Himalayan Yoga Retreat." - Swami Prakesh
Himalayan Yoga Retreat is dedicated to offering sincere inspiration and guidance to striving spiritual aspirants in today's complicated modern times, and employs a diverse array of techniques to suit varied personality types and backgrounds. A portion of the profits from Himalayan Yoga Retreat goes to supporting the education of young girls in rural Indian villages, giving them the tools to manifest success in their lives and become a source of inspiration in their villages.
Swami Prakash hopes to spread the yogic wisdom and practices he has learned over the years around the world, to help motivate and inspire people to change their lives that may not have the opportunity to come and learn directly from him in India.
