General Information

Please read course details as well as the course location information carefully before making a decision to register.
Total number of participants for any course is only 24.
Admission to any course is on first come first serve basis.
There is only one course running at a time.
Please plan to arrive at the course location at least one day before the start of the course and to leave at least one day after the course completion.
It is recommended to spend at least a few days in the course location before the start of your course. This allows your body and mind time to rest, re-energise and be nourished by the ashram environment. You can then begin your study feeling relaxed and refreshed. You may also wish to stay for some days after the end of the course to allow the learning from your study to integrate more fully into your consciousness within the supportive environment of the ashram. If you decide to arrive early and to stay longer, please register for the course program for those additional days.
Please see Calendar of events for the programs offered around the time of your visit.
Dates and donations are subject to change without notice. For all programs, guests are subject to the suggested donation in effect at the time of final payment.
To maintain the spiritual atmosphere we ask all ashram guests to comply with the ashram rules. Kindly refer to the Ashram rules and guidelines for more information. The ashram reserves the right of admission and students may be asked to leave if their behaviour goes against the ashrams rules and teachings.
All the courses are taught in English, there is currently no translation facility available into any other language.

Arrival and Departure Information


Students are welcome to arrive even earlier and stay as long as they wish after the course (depending upon accommodation availability), paying the regular ashram daily rate for those extra days. Students are also welcome to contact the ashram directly if they would like to stay on in the ashram after the course participating in the karma yoga program (volunteer staff program).

The karma yoga program is an excellent way to deepen your experience and understanding of yoga teaching.
