About Bihar School of Yoga, Rikhia

Rikhia is tiny, remote village in Jharkhand, about 12kms from the temple Deoghar. It earned its yogic history when, loving the isolation and serenity it provided, Rishis flocked there to do yoga. Infact, the name ‘Rikhia’ is a distortion of the word ‘Rishi’.

Rikhia is renowned for its peaceful and serene landscape. Just by being there, the practitioner feels calm and relaxed in the midst of the beauty of the lush landscape.
