"A peaceful and beautiful oasis to meet yourself"

"I did the yoga teacher training (YTT) in the Himalayan Yog Ashram and finally spent 5 weeks in this amazing place. My aim was not to have the certificate. I was looking for an Ashram where I have the chance to learn more about the real yogic path and where I find space to contemplate myself. That's exactly what was offered to me. My whole stay has been a deep, inspiring, sometimes challenging and very beautiful experience."
- Nadia (Switserland) -

“Absolutely amazing experience ... Life changing! ”

A truly amazing experience ... Ram and his team are the most welcoming, accommodating and beautiful people! I stayed here for over a month completing my Yoga Teacher training ... I learnt so much in an authentic, passionate and life changing environment! Narendre makes the most delicious Indian food and Teju is an amazing Hatha yoga teacher! Cannot wait to return...
