Rishikesh is considered the birthplace of Yoga. It is where Anand Mehrotra was born and raised in the Himalayan Yog-Vedantic Tradition. Study in Rishikesh, where the Sattva Retreat Center is nestled in the mountains – a nurturing, healing and sacred space allowing you a still space to go deep within. Deepen your self-study in spiritually charged sacred land, in the land of the Rishis along Vedic pilgrimage routes. Why go anywhere else? Learn from the source.

Teachings at the SATTVA YOGA ACADEMY come out of the Himalayan Yog-Vedantic Tradition and are about opening the mind and heart to the sheer brilliance of life. They are about being fierce and fearless, while being completely vulnerable and present to bliss.
