Smilence was born as result of a conversation between Ananda and Naman who wanted to build a space to practice art, yoga and meditation. We welcome people from all backgrounds, people who are willing to open their heart. Today we work with a team who enables those who’ve never visited India to benefit from its ancient and effective systems of natural healing.
Smilence is based in Rishikesh, the “yoga capital of the world”. The town is nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas , with the Ganges river running through its centre. Rishikesh has been a pilgrimage town since ancient times and is one of the holiest places in Hinduism. Non-vegetarian food, and alcohol are strictly prohibited. It is the perfect environment to rejuvenate, and systematic rejuvenation is the best answer to the unnatural stresses of modern lives.
Food for a Smile is one of the events hosted by Smilence Rishikesh.
