I arrived at the ashram straight from the airport and was in a bit of a mess. The combination of arriving in India and arriving at the ashram was a bit too much for me but a lovely member of staff sat me down and comforted me. The rules of the ashram were very strict and put me off a... More

I took part in the Vacation programme and I had a wonderful experience. I practised good strong yoga,and meditation. I loved the order and discipline of the daily routine and the staff were very caring and helpful in every way. I will return whenever I can. A big thank you to all in this lovely place.

I have been living in Sivananda ashram for about 3 monthes an a half.I partecipated to the yoga vacation programme focusing on yoga, and ayurvedic treatments. I really enjoyed my time there. Yoga classes are very good, my body became more flexible and now I feel more confident with myself. Teachers are professional, able to explain each asana in detail... More

A place to just go with the flow, drop all of the outside world and have space to focus only on the inside <3 Oh, and the best food I've ever had in India too!!!

Very nice and peaceful place. Heathy day/night rythm. Harmonious and well thougth program, but not for people unable to live with a schedule or to follow rules. Excellent food. Sometimes spectacles (music, dance). Not too big ashram, so you get to meet people. The people who teach there are applying and living what they are teaching.

Beautiful setting in the heart of Kerala, this was a lovely experience which had a structured but not too intense programme of events to combine the spiritual and physical aspects of yoga in its birthplace. As well as morning and evening meditation and chanting, there were 2 hour asanas twice a day and guest speaker/lectures and other entertainment in the... More

I had the most shocking experience at this Ashram and was utterly disappointed to see the amount of hypocrisy that was going on in the name of yoga, spirituality and karma. I was really excited about the TTC here but I decided to leave within a week as this wasn't my interpretation of Yoga or Spirituality. First this place is... More

Sivananda Ashram at Neyyar is an excellent place. The ambiance is good and the daily routine is excellent. The teachers are nice and are there to help and improve you. The routine is planned very well and it engages you all day. It is a nice place to stay.
