Yoga & Ashram Life Daily Timetable


The Ashram lifestyle and daily yoga practices are based on a living tradition which is a complete and practical system for realigning and redirecting the emotions and the mind for positive and personal evolution.




What’s in it for you?

3 classes a day: morning yoga class of asana (postures) and pranayama (breathing), yoga nidra (deep relaxation), meditation or havan (fire ceremony with mantra chanting)

Delicious vegetarian meals, much of which is sourced from the ashram’s organic vegetable garden, or local organic produce

Become immersed in an authentic and traditional yogic lifestyle

Understand the scope that yoga has to offer ‘beyond the mat’ by exposure to various branches and practices of yoga

Developing practical tools for living: regularity and simplicity, self-awareness in daily life, overcoming mental conditioning and patterns, building positive attitudes and intention, harmonising the expression of head, heart and hands

Are you up for the challenge?

How committed are you to making lasting positive changes in your life?  How would you handle a week of:

  • Morning wake-up call at 5.30am for 6am class
  • Maintaining silence from evening until after breakfast, and at all meals on Wednesdays
  • Sharing a room with someone you’ve never met
  • Full participation in the ashram daily routine
  • Engaging with a diverse range of people of all ages, backgrounds, abilities and beliefs
  • A complete “digital detox” – switch off your mobile and leave your laptop at home
  • And at the end feel you have benefited

What to Expect

This retreat is for those who are young, or young at heart, dynamic and wish to sustain and cultivate a positive attitude towards life.

The Yoga & Ashram Life option includes approximately 5hrs of full time Karma Yoga - awareness, being fully engaged and present in action in the lifestyle with the daily ashram routine.  The activities include, organic veggie garden, kitchen, maintenance, house keeping, and many other varied and interesting lifestyle projects.
