Sattvic Food for Every Yoga Aspirant

Meals of a yogic diet have been served at the Yogpeeth Rishikesh in Rishikesh. Getting started with yoga is easier with the help of our gluten-free, yogic diet. The meal, together with the detox tea and juices, contains a good balance of nutrients such as vitamins, proteins, carbohydrates, calcium, and other minerals. We believe that medication loses its efficacy when consumed alongside unhealthy eating. Medication is unnecessary when the diet is healthy. What we eat has a significant impact on our ability to meditate and practice yoga.

Yogpeeth Rishikesh is located in the Holy City of Rishikesh in the foothills of Mighty Himalayas near the Ganga River. Rishikesh is the home to various rishis and yogis who have come to start their spiritual journey of ultimate liberation to connect with supreme conscious. The same connection you will be able to feel when you step for the first time here.
