Welcome to the Sivananda Yoga Meenakashi Ashram, nestled within the beautiful forest lands of south India, with stunning views of the impressive Western Ghat mountain range and only one hour from the holy temple city of Madurai. Here is a sublime setting for the practice of yoga and meditation, an environment serene and harmonious.

Come and experience the heady perfumes of the jasmine and flower gardens surrounding our Temple. Sip refreshing medicinal teas made from the leaves from our organic herbal tea garden.  Perpetually-flowering brilliantly-coloured bougainvillea line each and every pathway. Fountains and waterfalls keep the air ionised and fresh. Relax on our lawns or sit under holy neem and peepul trees providing both medicine and shade.  Listen to the calls of the peacocks, and watch the cows graze. 

Come to the heart of nature and to the heart of India, and learn the eternal wisdom of yoga and meditation in their land of origin.
