Yogic Practices

Simple Yogic Practices are part of all programs offered by Anaadi. To keep oneself vibrant throughout the Yatra and as a preparation to receive the divine energies of the Himalayas, participants will be taught simple yogic postures and breathing practices.


The altitude and temperature of the Himalayas make it an ideal place for spiritual sadhana. Meditation makes us more open to experience deeper states of consciousness. Guided meditation sessions at various sacred places will help the participants to be in-tune with and imbibe the calmness and serenity of the Himalayas.

Engaging Discussions

The Himalayas provide the right setting for deep discussions. Participants will get the opportunity to liten to sthalapuranas, stories from the Mahabharata and vedantic insights.

Guptakashi and Kalimath

Of legendary significance linked to the Mahabharata, Guptakashi is hope to Kashi Vshwanatha. Shiva vanished at this place while the Pandavas were looking for him, giving the place its name : Gupt means secret or hidden.
Kalimath lies on the historical river Saraswati. Kali killed Rakthabija in this place. The most significant aspect of this temple is that Devi is worshipped in the form of Shri Yantra.
