International Yoga and Music Festival

November 1 – 7, Swargashram, Rishikesh, India


International Yoga and Music Festival is organized every year from November 1 – 7th since 2008 by Nad Yoga Trust, a non-profit organization and sponsored by Nada Yoga School in Rishikesh, India.

Every year, the free International Yoga and Music Festival, invites you to join yoga classes in many different forms of Yoga from many different teachers or Yogis. They hold yoga classes in Yoga Asanas (Hatha yoga, Ashtanga, Iyengar, Sivananda), Pranayama (breathing exercises), Shatkarma (cleansing exercises), meditation and spiritual lectures. Ayurveda lectures are given by qualified experienced Ayurveda doctors, who check your entire health system, including reading your pulse. You will learn many basic things for your daily home use, to keep and balance your health.

Every evening of the 7 days of the yearly, Yoga and Music festival, held in November, people enjoy live Indian classical music or dance from professional, famous musicians and dancers. Many of them are from other parts of India; Some have their own schools and ashrams in Rishikesh and look forward to welcoming new students who have a compassion for Indian classical music, or dance.

The Yoga and Music Festival gives many a chance to start with their spiritual practice and to begin to strengthen their bodies through body exercises of Yoga. Yoga can be practiced by healthy people as well as people with diseases. This requires experienced teachers with knowledge in these areas; In Rishikesh you can attend a course of studies in local universities and obtain a masters’ degree in yoga practices in as short as two years or attend 200-hour one-month yoga teacher training programs to obtain an internationally recognized yoga alliance certificate.

The classes start from 7 am and end with everyday Indian Classical Music Concert at 7 pm.

All the classes provided during the festival are FREE of cost. That means you don’t have to pay for any of the classes or lectures you attend during the festival.

The festival is open for all the yoga learners from anywhere from the world.

But there are some rules you have to follow –

  1.  They are professionals, so we do not want to disappoint them with any misbehaviour during the classes.
  2. Do not gossip during the yoga classes or lectures, otherwise you will be sent out of the class.
  3. Once the yoga or lecture class is started, you are not allowed to go in or out the hall. If you do, you will not be allowed to join any of the classes or lectures during the festival.
