Peaceful environment, disciplined lifestyle, yoga sessions, karma yoga (selfless service) and satsangs with bhajans (devotional songs) and readings from Swami Sivananda's teachings made the days worth living at the Ashram. Those who are not familiar with such a schedule may take a while to adjust...More

For a complete experience in yogic lifestyle, this is one of the best and most authentic places to visit in India. They offer very economical stay for small duration as well. Would highly recommend for all yoga practitioners. Simple food and great atmosphere.

Thanks for your positive and encouraging review. We do say one-third of the learning will be from the teachers, one-third from your own practice and one-third from others around you. We are blessed to be surrounded by many open minded, sincere seekers.
