I don't know if I would go again. I love the area but the ashram was kind of not what I expected. I was lucky, I did a Panchakarma treatment and this means a different schedule and food but if i would have come only for the yoga vacation, I would have run away after 3 days, like many others...

Hello, I'm writing this review only to say that I have always received prompt replies from the Ashram. About 4 months ago I made a reservation for one month stay. I emailed yesterday to confirm as I'm leaving in 3 weeks. This morning I woke up to a confirmation of my reservation. This put my at ease tremendously as I'm... More

I've been doing Sivananda yoga for years in the Bahamas and Canada. I planned this trip for months and was SO excited that I would do it in India at Neyyar Dam and I hoped Madurai as well. The dormitory was bug infested and my mattress smelt of urine. I had a good giggle when eating, sitting on the floor... More

I spent 9 days in Sivananda Ashram in Neyyar Dam for 9 days in early Nov. The yoga is just amazing there, it is very calm and peaceful inside, it is a great place to escape from busy noisy and dusty India cities or towns. The food is not as spicy as India food which i had outside, the taste... More

I visited the Sivananda Ashram in Neyyar Dam for 10 days in July 2015, straddling two of the regular Yoga Vacation periods. I am a relatively experienced (though not especially talented) yogi, from Canada, and I do not regularly practice meditation. I had never before been to an ashram. This was my first time in Kerala. The schedule at Neyyar... More

Probably the best thing to do when looking to get away from the everyday life; you get the whole package, plenty of good vegetarian cuisine, tea, and a boutique to get snacks and helpful stuff; the grounds are large and beautiful, awesome halls for yoga, lectures and other activities; really quiet area in the middle of the jungle about one...

After traveling around India with a group for 3 weeks and spending a week at an ayurvedic healing center, I completed my India journey with 9 nights at Sivananda Yoga Ashram at Neyyar Dam near Trivandrum, in South India. It was a great experience. I had practiced yoga for 12 years previously, but this ashram provided the perfect setting tor... More
