Traditional Ashram Life Experience 

 Read more

Sannyasa Ashram Lifestyle is a unique approach to totally immerse and experience a way of life to meet personal and social changes and challenges with resilience, conscious constructive and positive self understanding.   

Participation does not require renunciation of the world or taking initiation.  It is about developing attitudes that support being the best we can be in life.  The quest is to discover who we are and how we can be ourselves in the world. 

To understand or refresh one’s purpose of intention in life, within the framework of the Ashram Life, the first month follows the Living Consciously program with daily subjects of awareness and twice daily group meetings with Sw. Atmamuktananda or other experienced teachers.

Supporting the Inner Self Wellness

Visitor 2023
Thank you so much for my stay at the ashram and for the wonderful programme. The ashram is such a magical place, nestled in nature and away from the bustle of the city. It was a much-needed break from all the external stimulations and distractions, as well as a good reminder to get back to the practice. I left with a better sense of clarity and centredness, inner happiness and spaciousness. 

Any dates in August $120 per night Book Here

Imagine feeling rested and relaxed, having quality time to reflect in the quiet spaces of the Ashram environment without any obligation to do....and

imagine yoga practices that create deep relaxation, and give space within to declutter the mind from the things we worry about

Self Healing Power of Asana

Pawanmuktasana - release of energy blockages 

15 - 17 Sep     $350 Book Here

With Sw. Atma
After 40 years of practising yoga these practices still remain a major part of my daily yoga sadhana. 

A regular practice of Pawanmuktasana – known as the joint rotations removes energy blockages and increases self-healing prana – vital energy.  The practice promotes good health in rectifying imbalances in the nervous system, chakras, mind and emotions and improves concentration, self-awareness and self-confidence. 

Based on research Pawanmuktasana often called anti-rheumatic group of asana is likened to acupuncture in clearing energy blocks with emphasis on relaxation and awareness of each part of the body.  Many serious malfunctions in the physical body, mental awareness and emotional experiences have been eased through the practice of Pawanmuktasana.   Its an amazingly powerful self healing process.

About the Cleansing Practices

This excellent yet simple intestinal cleanse washes and flushes out the digestive system.  Encourages the intestines to function at their best, promoting healthy elimination of toxins, both of which are essential for physical health, vitality and mental wellbeing.
If you have been practicing yoga postures for some time and wish to deepen your practice the hatha yoga cleansing practices may be of interest to justify;">

Shatkarmas Include:
  • Laghoo Shankaprakshalana - intestinal wash - Asana - 6 postures 
  • Kunjal kriya - stomach wash
  • Jala Neti - nasal cleansing
  • Trataka - concentrated gazing
  • Yoga Nidra - deep relaxation
  • Bhramari & Full Yogic Breath - pranayama - breathing techniques

Many people initially find yoga through the physical postures and may be surprised to discover that hatha yoga is one of several angas or branches of yoga. Hatha yoga was traditionally composed of the shatkarmas (six actions) to cleanse the physical body of the three impurities of phlegm, bile and wind and purify the pranic network of nadis in order to awaken dormant spiritual potential.
