The Ashram’s daily schedule includes time for reflection, learning, and relaxation. All guests should attend at least one satsang and yoga class to enhance your stay in the Ashram.

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. 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.
