Retreat location

This course will be held in Dharamkot, Dharamsala. Sitting in the shadows of the Dhauladhar ranges of Himalayas, the beautiful mountains frame a most breathtaking, pristine backdrop for a city whose name roughly translates as ‘spiritual dwelling’. Fitting, as it has played home to the Dalai Lama, and many Tibetans seeking solace post-uprising in the mid-20th century. Many have made the pilgrimage to this captivating, spiritual place; it is not difficult to see why so many have been drawn to it. The otherworldly feeling is palpable, sounds from the Tibetan monasteries ringing with such vibrancy one can feel the ebullience of energy, drawing on a primordial essence from deep within.

Abhinam Yoga School’s location, among the clouds in Dharamkot in Himalayas, taps in to this abundance of energy. One cannot help but completely immerse themselves in their practice, their learning, their sense of ‘self’. It is the perfect space to practice meditation and being situated over 2500 meters above sea level, its climate is perfect for asana practice during the summer months. For those of you craving inspiration and to truly immerse in learning with wisdom in every pore of your surroundings, Abhinam Yoga Center in Dharamkot, Dharamsala, in North India is perfect for you.
