We are a small Jungle Ashram nestled in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains between the Laxman Jhula and Ram Jhula bridges in Rishikesh, India. We greatly value living close to nature with pure air, water, flowers and birds. We are a refuge for spiritual seekers and students of yoga . We offer private and group classes in Hatha Yoga, Kundalini Yoga, Pranayama, Meditation, Kriyas, Yogic Philosophy, and Spiritual Consultation.
We have the unique opportunity of living with a realized master in the environment he has created since the Ashram was established in 1960. The Ashram breathes with the energy of awakening and is purifying and rejuvenating to all who come. Seekers journey from all parts of the world to experience a deeper understanding of their true Self.
An ashram is a hermitage of yogis and yoginis. It is a place to deepen one's spiritual practice (sadhana). We accept persons of a mature age and disposition. Any person wishing to retreat in the ashram will need to fill out an application and be accepted by Swamiji. We have limited facilities such as no cook or canteen. Persons in retreat will need to set up their own small kitchen or eat outside of the ashram. We work to accomodate the needs of serious spiritual aspirants and seekers.
A large part of our daily life is Seva (selfless service). This is giving of your time and effort make other people's lives happier and easier. Through Karma Yoga and Seva we dedicate our actions to humanity and divinity, This process starts purification within the heart and mind and helps a person to become a more open and giving human being.
