Begnas Yoga & Retreat is a residential center for YogaMeditationReiki, and wellness programs with touch of Ayurveda, & Naturopathy.
The name Begnas is the name of the Lake where the Great Sadhu Guru Gorakhnath had a penance for a long time. Now, the pious location is renowned as the Gorakhnath Temple. Begnas is the unification of two Sanskrit words the Bega which means speed and Nasa meaning no, which comes together to give the meaning of a location with no worries, no sorrows, and no material life.
