The yogshala welcomes you to be part of their family with full of grace and hospitality. They have all the facilities to make your stay exciting and entertaining. They have airy rooms. Although its environment will give you an asharm like feeling, you will also have all the necessary amenities. You may request for single or double occupancy rooms. So, get away from your daily travesties of life, come and spend a few days with Akshi Yogashala to see how they would accommodate you.


The course is best for beginners to deeply understand and to get into the gist of yoga. While Ashtanga yoga would relax the muscles and detoxify the organs of the body, Hatha yoga brings the rhythm and sense to the body and soul. If incorporated with laughter yoga, it becomes highly elevating.


Experience the level of tranquility and clarity to focus on your well-being. Meditation does not only make spiritually elevations, but also clears your thoughts, gives you tranquility and peace, and focuses your mind and well-being. You would get control of your mental power, gain the capability to overcome worries which otherwise is impossible in the everyday spectrum of life.
