  • Bankikodla Road, Karnataka 581319, India

Experience Yoga Nidra and living a spiritual life

Come to our little piece of paradise. Learn and practice Yoga Nidra as taught in the Satyananda Bihar Tradition, practice daily asanas, pranayama, chanting and meditation, and experience living a spiritual life. The program is designed to explore your deeper consciousness. Alongside our daily classes, we offer a wide range of workshops. We are not a resort, we are not a guest house, we are an ashram living simply on an organic farm with a Play School. Our ashram holds an open, loving atmosphere of diverse individuals who function much like a spiritual family. We eat, chant, meditate, sing, learn, work, and play together.

Yoga Nidra

Psychic sleep meditation - yogic dreaming - the hallmark of Satyananda Bihar School of Yoga and the most popular and enjoyable of the meditation from the Tantras. It is a lying down relaxation meditation which systematically takes you from the world of outer sounds step by step through body, breath and mind to your deep subconscious to release negativity, tap into creativity and positivity and explore your deeper consciousness connecting to your higher consciousness.

Asana and pranayama sadhana session

The morning is an ideal time to connect with the body and breath, and calm your mind through asana. Asanas for fitness strenghth and flexibility, suitable for beginners, adepts and therapy. Pranayamas to balance, energise and focus. You will get a daily practice, adapted to your needs, that you can continue by yourself at home.

Mantra chanting

Morning and evening mantra chanting sessions cleanse, focus and fill the mind with positive energy. In the evening there is a short group meditation followed by Kirtan (singing spiritual songs) or Satsang (spiritual discussions on truth). All are welcome to join or simply enjoy the vibrations.

Karma yoga

This is a special session where you get to participate actively in the ashram life, in the garden, in the kitchen, helping in the office, house keeping etc. Karma yoga is the best way “to find the higher self you must lose yourself in the service of others” – this is Karma Yoga, Seva.
