Long Term Stay for Senior People in Rishikesh!

If you are at the age where the worldly attachments are losing their charm and you feel to be free from various family responsibilities and if you want to live in the midst of nature, devoting your life in the search of the supreme and higher purpose of life, then Sri Yoga Ashram is the perfect place. Moreover, what place can be better than Rishikesh, on the bank of river Ganga, in the foothills of the Himalayas for spending the peaceful days of your life. You are welcome to join a new family. Please note that young people can also stay at Sri Yoga Niwas. But the price packages are different for young people and old people.

Affordable Home Stay for Senior People: Concept

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.

Yoga Home in Rishikesh : Peacefull Environment

Sri Yoga Niwas is located in Laxman Jhula area of Rishikesh. Sri Yoga Niwas is surrounded by green forest and mountain. The greenery here is soothing to the eyes. The fresh air makes you healthy without efforts; cold breeze in the morning is one thing people are dreaming for in the big cities. From the terrace and rooftop, you get a beautiful view of Holy river Ganga.

The location is only fifty meters away from the main road providing enough distance for avoiding all the noise. Just next to Sri Yoga Niwas, there is a small mountain stream flowing all around the year, which creates sweet music in the ears all the time. Our scriptures say that meditating next to mountain river is very effective. You see here all kind of birds in different colors and you wake in the morning by their beautiful sounds. The place is really charming and full of divinity. We invite you to make it your home and be our family member. Near Sri Yoga Niwas there are many Ashrams and religious places where many activities are always happening. The family members can get the blessings of many great masters here and attend their sessions.
