Super nice Ashram, very good yoga teachers, exellent food, share dormitory with nice people from everywhere. If you like Ashram's rules 100% recommended (maybe they can improve the bajans songs)

A beautiful ashram in a tranquil environment. Silent meditation room is a very peaceful area filled with divine energy. The big dasavatara painting up above the wall of samadhi mantiram is spectacular. Programs are actually on the expensive side for natives.
