Phool Chatti Ashram: My 7 Days in the Ashram

Phool Chatti Ashram is located right on the bank of Ganga, with forests on all sides. You can hear Ganga gushing down all day round. The new ashram building is built with a modern viewpoint but is still very close to nature. The building is beautiful and each room has a beautiful view. The food served is highly nutritious and you won’t want to miss a single meal while staying at the ashram in Rishikesh.

My Experience at Ashram

I attended the 7-day program at Phool Chatti Ashram and it was a great experience. They not only teach you about the different aspects of Yoga but also provide guidance on how to lead a healthy lifestyle. The staff is very friendly and hardworking, and the food is delicious. I have returned back feeling very rejuvenated. They have a lovely collection of books for kids as well. Lalita Ji is a wonderful teacher and works harder than any participant.

Teachers Training Course

Lalita’s mam has been teaching yoga for over ten years and she structures the course in a way that is very beneficial for anyone looking to rediscover themselves, feel relaxed and become happy and healthy. I know I’ll be back soon to experience the fulfillment that comes with spending time here. Thanks, Lalita JI, Meenakshi Ji, and everyone at Phool Chatti Ashram!

Please keep in mind that an ashram is not a hotel – so don’t expect the same level of service. Be prepared to help out where you can, as everyone pitches in around here. There is no room service and meals are served at specific times, but they are usually quite delicious!


If you’re looking for a beautiful and peaceful setting to attend a yoga retreat, I highly recommend Phool Chatti Ashram. I had the pleasure of attending their 7-day retreat in March 2021 and was very impressed with the comprehensive program. Lalita Ji, the yoga instructor, and program director are highly qualified and very kind. The food was excellent and their new accommodation is wonderful. I would definitely recommend this place if you’re looking to nourish your mind, body, and soul.
