One of the biggest yoga extravaganzas in the world, the International Yoga Festival is hosted annually in Rishikesh, colloquially called the yoga capital of the world. The main venue of the festival is Parmarth Niketan Ashram on the banks of River Ganga. 

During the festival, a multitude of people gathers to practice some of the ancient techniques of yoga and meditation, such as Yog Nidra, Pranayama and Hatha Yoga. Meditative sessions of Antar Mauna, Agnihotra, Chidakasha Dharma and Chakra Sudhi are also carried out. Participants can have a wholesome experience in the festival - they get to indulge in Sattvic food, stay in humble lodgings, follow a spiritual path along with their fellow amiable men and women. In the evenings, people can witness the true spiritual spirit of Rishikesh as bhajans, kirtans and Ganga arti are organised on a grand scale.
