Sri Yoga Ashram, Rishikesh brings a new initiative providing fully furnished ‘Sri Yoga Niwas’ for the retired people or old people of all countries and culture. Sri Yoga Niwas is the home in Rishikesh for the people who want to pursue the spiritual life and want to live in the holy city of Rishikesh.
The concept of Sri Yoga Niwas is to provide our senior citizens an affordable place to live freely and fulfilling in the green, clean and spiritual city. This is quite in the line of entering ‘Vanprastha Ashram’ according to Hindu culture. The idea here is that senior people must not feel dependent on anyone just because they are getting old, but at the same time they should be given some relaxing time, space and peace of mind after many years of hard work. There is retirement age for everyone and there is a retirement dream for everyone. Sri Yoga Ashram aims to fulfill this dream and help the senior citizens, retired people, and old people progress spiritually at the same time. The senior citizens must be respected and given the space for expressing themselves.
So Yoga Niwas is a place for the same. Life at the ‘Sri Yoga Niwas is definitely peaceful and meaningful. The spiritual evolution comes here by naturally. Unfortunately, the young generation can’t afford this golden opportunity as life for them is too hectic and stressful. But if you are at that age where you have stopped running then come and stay at ‘Sri Yoga Niwas, Rishikesh run by Sri Yoga Ashram.
• Sri Yoga Niwas is available for the Senior Citizens of all countries and religions without any discrimination.
• There is no minimum age for staying however there is special price for senior people of the society. In India old people are respected and are given some extra facilities as a token of gratitude from the younger generation. This is a special service for the older people according to the tradition of India. Minimum age for this special price is 50 years for women and 55 Years for men.
• The people willing to stay long time must be healthy and capable of taking care of themselves.
• We can arrange the doctor facility for the medical help. The expanses must be paid by the respected family members.
• All resident family members must have medical insurance and life insurance.
• We are a yoga ashram so for keeping the purity of the environment, the residents will not be allowed to smoke in the ‘Sri Yoga Niwas’ premises. Consumption of alcohol, any other toxic material or Non Veg food is prohibited in the ashram premises.
• No commercial activities will be conducted from the ‘Sri Yoga Niwas’ by the resident family members.
• The package and facilities opted by our respected senior family members are not transferrable.
• Initially all resident family members can opt for one month stay and they can extend it again and again.
• After one month stay at Sri Yoga Niwas, the senior family members can ask for long term stay starting from one year. This depends on the mutual consent of Sri Yoga Ashram and family member.
• Ashram can ask any family member to leave if his behavior is offensive and creating a nuisance to other family members or staff members.
• Please note that Yoga Niwas by Sri Yoga Ashram is not a traditional old age home rather it is a place to live peacefully spending time in spiritual practices at the later part of life.
• Sri Yoga Ashram conducts regular yoga courses of the duration of one month. Most of the people attending these courses are young people from all over the world. There is a great possibility that you can find that you are the only person of your age.
• Sri Yoga Niwas is not a place of being dependent in the old age rather it is a place of remaining independent, healthy, and strong throughout the life.
