Whether you are already undergoing a personal transformation or are in search of transformation, whether you are already an active co-creator of your own divine life or you would like to become one – the Festival is for all! Befriend a community that becomes family for life.
​In the 7-day immersion and celebration, you have the opportunity to embrace every major style of yoga and learn from enlightened Spiritual Leaders, Master Yoga Teachers, Evolutionary Thought Leaders, and Wellness Specialists from around the world.  Awaken to the best version of yourself and ignite your inner light through this not-to-be-missed event at Parmarth Niketan Ashram, the largest ashram in Rishikesh and one of the largest interfaith yoga institutions in India.

At the International Yoga Festival, there is a special time during the festival in which participants from around the world can offer a cultural demonstration of yoga, dance or song to highlight the cultural richness of their country.Please note:  This opportunity is for ticket-holders only, and is an opportunity to represent your country and culture to fellow IYF participants!
