Things I wish I had known - bring your own tea bags, hot water is available all day long. Bring fewer clothes. You won't need much. Everything else I felt truly prepared for. If you are a female, try to go when you are not menstruating - you will get more out of the asana experience, and facilities are difficult... More

Reading all the reviews, my mom and I were skeptical about this place. We are both relative beginners when it comes to yoga and yogi culture. Our experience surpassed our expectations by leaps and bounds! It was incredible! Yoga: This was the highlight! There are beginner and intermediate classes offered at both times. They include wonderful breathing exercises followed by... More

I went to the ashram and got an EXCELLENT nutrition workshop by Katie Papo who actually taught me things about nutrition I did not know (and I know nutrition). I wish all nutrition experts could be as forward thinking and educated on nutrition as Katie Papo - great work - when you come back to the ashram I look forward... More

This is a true Ashram - not a hotel. The point is meditation which is achieved through diet (2 meals per day - vegetarian - period), exercise (yoga - excellent), service (yes you will work on the ashram), group meditation and chanting (early morning on the beach is best). Bedrooms are sparse - most don't have private bathrooms, many stay... More

You better truly be a yogini if you want to experience an ashram communal lifestyle. NO frills accommodations - small rooms or tents. It is a spiritual experience with excellent communal vegetarian food that is served in vats cafeteria style. The gong rings at 6 am for chanting, then breakfast, then 10:00 AM asanas. Then lunch, rest time with great... More

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
