Traditional Ashram Life Experience 

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. 

The three branches of yoga Bhakti Yoga, Karma Yoga, Jnana and Yoga and Cleansing Hatha Yoga provide a balanced approach and expression to life. These branches of yoga are experienced and imbibed through the daily lifestyle and program of morning classes of asana and pranayama, meditation, yoga nidra, karma yoga, mantra chanting, reviews and discussions.

Karma yoga is experienced by fully participating in all activities with an open and fresh attitude towards the action. Action then becomes a process of self-improvement, self-observation, and willingness to share skills with cooperation and sincerity. Through the practice of karma yoga old habits and opinions undergo a process of transformation. Learn and share skills in the garden, building, cooking, maintenance and other organic and creative projects.  Learning and participating in these practical skills creates a more resilient, simple, fulfilling, and joyful lifestyle for when you return to your home place. 

Bhakti yoga presents a pathway, an awareness to channel the ordinary emotions into a more positive and meaningful expression in every interaction and situation. 

Jnana yoga is the discovery and understanding of appropriate and constructive thinking, behaviour and action. The ashram environment provides a systematic way of life to deepen understanding and develop one’s own nature, creativity and dormant potentials.
