Welcome to the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Meenakshi Ashram, founded in 2002 and 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. Meenakshi Amman is the name of the Divine Mother who is the presiding deity of the world-heritage temple in Madurai.
The Ashram provides a sublime setting for the practice of yoga and meditation, in an environment that is both serene and harmonious, perfectly aligned with Mother Nature. The Ashram Temple, dedicated to the Goddess Kali, is surrounded by jasmine flowers used specifically for the offerings. The grounds of the Ashram have been designed in accordance with vastu, the ancient Indian science of architecture and design.
