Yoga City

Yoga City

Rishikesh is the yoga capital of India. When we first arrived we found an amazing Yoga class that took place in a studio high above the Ganges. The class started at 4:30 as the sun was starting to sink towards the horizon and ended in the light of Candles, stars and a Cheshire cat moon.

The city is seperated into two halves by the Ganges and there are only two foot bridges connecting one side to the other. The side we are staying on is called Laxman Juda, and it is on the no car side of the river. It is characterized by conical shaped Ashrams and Hindu temples.

Cows roam the streets everywhere, Lindsey fed one a chocolate chip cookie on our walk home from dinner one night and now said cow follows us home every night waiting from her next hand out.
