Yoga Vacation

Leave behind the stresses and strains of daily life and rediscover the joy of living in the idyllic setting of a traditional Indian Ashram. Immerse yourself in the yogic lifestyle and dive deep into the ancient teachings of India in our inspirational year-round Yoga Vacation programme. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned practitioner increase your vitality and positivity with daily yoga practice, healthy vegetarian meals, silent meditation sessions, inspirational teachings and devotional practices–traditional to India–that are an integral part of your stay here. Based on the Five Points of Yoga of Swami Vishnudevananda the programme brings radiant health and inner peace.

STAY IN TOUCH WITH OUR MONTHLY NEWSLETTER

The Ashram’s daily schedule includes time for reflection, learning and relaxation. All guests are required to attend morning and evening satsang, the afternoon lecture and both yoga classes each day to make the most of your stay and to contribute to the Ashram experience.

Each day starts and ends with satsang, a practice that is at the core of our Ashram life. Here we meditate silently, chant and listen to a discourse on yoga philosophy. Yoga asana classes are held twice a day, with classes for beginners and the more advanced.

We serve south Indian vegetarian meals, using as much as possible seasonal and locally-sourced food. Karma Yoga each morning gives you the opportunity to help around the Ashram and become part of Ashram life, and our daily workshop/lecture takes you into the deeper practices of yoga, explaining the theory, philosophy and psychology behind them and enhancing your practice even further.
