Samast Yoga affiliated with yoga alliance , USA offers silent retreat in Rishikesh. Whether you are looking to nurture yourself or detoxicate the thought process in you , our one week silent retreat provides the setting to return to yourself.

Take this opportunity to enter into the stillness of silence. It is a wonderful way to reconnect with your inner wisdom and sort out the mental chatter of daily life.

You will have the opportunity to meet other retreatants at the beginning of the retreat and we will go into the silence after dinner on the first day. Ways to communicate if necessary will be explained with the initial orientation session after arrival. If you’re thinking silent retreat is boring – you’re mistaken. It isn’t boring and it isn’t difficult.

With the silence comes clarity of thought , motivation and attention. Without distractions of communication , electronics and media you can focus on your own thoughts , become more self-aware and grow a little more.

We will spend time with the following activities :

  • Personal practice of movement such as yoga which is done in silence and without instruction
  • Meditate–sitting , walking , eating and working are all forms of meditation
  • Read spiritually uplifting books
  • Enjoy natural beauty , walk from the centre through forest trails
  • Connect with others in a deeper way through shared experience without talking about it
  • Be nurtured by friendly staff and supportive teacher
  • Rest , recuperate and have time for reflection and napping
