As a presenter, the staff could not have been more gracious and giving. The ashram is an authentic center for the practice of the science & spirituality of yoga, including hatha, meditation, chanting/prayer, study, and selfless service. Aptly located on Paradise Island, Bahamas, it is a true place of peace, light and love! Everyone is welcome. No prior experience with... More

This is an ashram-resort, not a hotel. If you want to learn yoga in a deeply spiritual atmosphere on a gorgeous property on one of the loveliest beaches I have ever seen, this is your paradise. Lectures, chanting, meditation, yoga run from 6 am till 10 pm most days. People here are incredibly friendly, and in more than the usual... More

Stayed at this beautiful Ashram for 9 wonderful days. A true getaway from the strains of today's world. No TV, minimal phone (by choice), and no hustle and bustle. Yoga twice a day with spectacular views. Gorgeous beach for hours of peaceful walking, reading or just enjoying the view. Stayed in a Tent Hut which was a true ADD to... More

Cold, tired, burn out or just want to practice yoga and feel some need for spiritual practice, its a best place to go. Escaping from the city its hectic, crazy life, escaping to this paradise full of love and good, supportive people is what one can do. Great conditions, food and beautiful beach. Located away from the outside world but... More

My brain and body feel better than I have ever felt in my life! The pace here (I'm on day 8 of a 2 week retreat) is fast and peaceful at the same time. Each day includes 3 hours of yoga, an hour of breath practice, an hour of meditation and 2 hours of chanting. So each day is full,... More

The Ashram has beautiful grounds, clean facilities, healthy and nutritious food, great location with access to a beautiful beach with clear blue waters, world famous artists who give workshops and concerts, great staff and wonderful spiritual teachers. I especially enjoyed the workshops given by Katie Ambika Papo. I attended her workshops on "Hip Openers" and "Yoga, Stress and Food." Katie... More

A day visit was a throwback to the 60s with yoga that was difficult and totally impossible for "beginners". Unfriendly staff guarantee that you won't be tempted to join this group. Untempting vegetarian food on tin plates was the last straw. Ugh...go to Kripalu & save your bones from unknowledgable instructors.

If you are attending this TTC in order to teach any style of yoga asana practice when you return to most places- this is not the place for you. there is a heavy emphasis on the yoga of devotion and the yoga of wisdom, with several hours a day spent chanting, meditating and studying the bagavaad gita. Secondary to this... More

Where else could you go to renew your mind, soul and body, return home refreshed and ready to face the challenges of daily life? A visit here always puts me in touch with my life, and opens the wider aspects of our brief earthly existence.. A good experience on many levels; it can be a different kind of vacation during...
