Yog Niketan Dham

14 Days Yoga and Meditation Retreat

Practising yoga and meditation has been known to improve the quality of life among human beings. As several health specialists have proven, following a yogic lifestyle improves eating and sleeping patterns, reduces stress and anxiety disorders, increases metabolism, induces a sense of happiness and fulfilment, and makes us more compassionate towards nature and other living beings around us as well as ourselves. Considering all these factors and much more, our 14 days Yoga and Meditation retreat in Devprayag and Rishikesh has been devised to transform your current lifestyle and bless it with harmony and tranquillity.

During 14 days yoga and meditation retreat, our retreat guests are rewarded with an opportunity to learn and practice ancient yoga forms such as Hatha and Ashtanga, pranayama, breathing techniques, yoga therapies, as well as basic Ayurveda lessons. Additionally, you get to immerse yourself in intensive yogic studies as well as teachings of yoga philosophy, mantra chanting and Shatkarma.

It must be noted that our meditation program is greatly influenced by the practices of Vipassana meditation, a form of meditation that was preached and practised by Buddha himself, thousands of years ago. 

To keep up with the basics of Vipassana, we follow and encourage our guests to follow certain principles of importance during the course – Ahimsa (non-violence), Mauna (silence), Brahmacharya (celibacy), Aparigraha (non-collectiveness) and the likes. We also instil certain Tantra Yoga practices in our program as it is a part of the ancient yogic system.

While we try our best to ensure that our guests make the best out of their time practising yoga and meditation with us, we also take complete care that you have a memorable time here with us.

This is why we include various adventure activities and sightseeing excursions as a part of our 14-days Yoga and Meditation retreat in Devprayag. During their time with us, you would be able to enjoy trekking the different nature trails around us, hike to several mountain temples, visit the banks of Holy Ganges, as well as explore many other places of cultural and spiritual relevance.

Our students receive a complimentary yoga kit before they begin the course. The kit includes all the necessary study material along with stationaries that they can use to prepare notes for future reference. Additionally, the kit consists of a yoga mat, a backpack, a t-shirt, and a neti pot – all the things you would need to participate in your classes.

Satvik Meals

All our students are provided with four healthy and satvik meals every day. The food is prepared by our efficient kitchen staff who stick to the guidelines of Ayurvedic and Vegan cooking methods. Milk and nut products are served separately for those who prefer.

Weekly Excursions

The ashram arranged for three complimentary excursions during a month-long program. These excursions often give our students a chance to experience the local temples, waterfalls, caves, and other places of importance.

24X7 Student Support

Our students are provided with dedicated phone and chat support number before they leave for India. This is to help them stay in touch with us and experience a smooth journey from their country to the ashram.

Refund Policy

We offer our students complete control of their booking, meaning that they are totally eligible to transfer their booking to someone else, switch to a different course, or join a different batch than planned within a calendar year. However, it is important to note that this facility is only available until the batches are finalized. Our batches are finalized on the 5th of every month. Once the final list has been prepared, no such modification can be allowed unless there is a critical emergency.

In case of emergency

We understand and empathize with unavoidable circumstances. Therefore, we ask our students to notify us of their situation within 24 hours of an emergency, in case they are unable to continue with their planned course. In case of an emergency, a student is allowed to move their course date to another month but not transfer it to someone else. All the emergency cases are individually evaluated and the final decision of approval rests with the ashram authorities.

No Show

In case a student fails to show up on the scheduled date of the course and doesn’t provide the ashram with a prior notification, the booking amount paid during the registration will be used to cover the losses incurred during the initial arrangements. The student isn’t liable for any refund or date change in no show situations.

Ethical Guidelines

At Yog Niketan Dham, we structure our courses and daily plans keeping in accordance with the essentials of the yogic way of life. And, we believe that sheering to this structure only enhances the experience for our students. We must understand that yoga is not just about postures and a few theoretical lessons; instead, it is a way of life. And, to completely transform your life according to the principles of yoga, it is essential that you strictly follow the guidelines of our ashram.


Additionally, we understand that our students come from different countries and cultural background. And, we believe in sharing our mutual respect for every culture and their beliefs. In return, we ask that our students feel the same about our culture and of those other students that they live and study with.


Furthermore, our values and principles are based on the traditional form of yogic practice. Though we respect all disciplines of yoga, we highly discourage our students from practice of Apbhrans (modified forms) of yoga during the course. Our students must understand that most of the contemporary yogic forms deal with only physical exercise and not the actual fundamentals of ancient yoga.


Last but not the least, we practice satvik living at the ashram, meaning that non-vegetarian food items, smoking, and drinking are strictly prohibited. We do not tolerate any form of intoxication. Being under the influence of any such substance is a cause for immediate termination without any refunds.

This means that if you see a program on our website for a specific month, rest assured that the course is available to book.
