In 1995, Swami Ji founded an ashram in his hometown Vrindavan. On this land he built an underground cave, which he entered in 1997 to spend the following three years and 108 days in meditation.

Today, the ashram is home not only to him and his family, but also to a number of students between the age of 8 and 20. They come from poor families who cannot afford their living or education and they thus become part of the ashram family.

The ashram is very open, friendly, and hospitable. The rooms are simple, air-conditioned, and have Western bathrooms. There is also a beautiful lawn and patio. Someone of the ashram family is available 24 / 7 for all questions or help. Any interested visitor to India is welcome to visit and stay at the ashram. Usually, Jaisiyaram offers single rooms with queen-size beds, but of course you are welcome to stay as a couple or in family together, too.

Why join?

For some people, the answer to this question can be the relaxing atmosphere of the ashram and for others, it can be the unique combination of Ayurvedic massages, Ayurveda treatments, yoga, and relaxation that only Jaisiyaram offers. However, the most important factor is that 100% of the profit for this holiday will support children charity projects. By doing something good for yourself you are doing good for poor children.

This retreat is not a course filled with hours of classes, a tight schedule, and teachings which will result in a certificate but it is a time of treatments, cleansing, and getting to know yourself.

You will experience yoga and Ayurveda on different levels and will have time to simply lay back and let your body and mind let go of the stress and pressure of your usual life. Relax, enjoy, and feel well in the loving surrounding of the ashram.


Yashendu Goswami will be leading your retreat. Yoga classes will be given by yoga teachers trained by him. Swami Balendu will also always be present for any counseling or questions. The yoga style is basic, original, Indian Hatha yoga as it has been passed on in yogic families for centuries.

You will have daily yoga practice at the ashram. One hour daily will be dedicated to stretching, bending, and strengthening your body. Due to the limited number of participants, your yoga teacher will be able to personalize the workshops to everybody's needs.

Depending on the group, the teacher will not only include gentle yoga positions for beginners, basic yoga poses, yoga for back pain and other areas of the body, but also advanced yoga positions if you are already a yoga instructor or long time practitioner. Whatever your level of practice is, these yoga classes will be designed for you.

Additionally, you can join the children of Jaisiyaram's school in their daily yoga class in the morning. Whenever they have school, they do yoga and you can just grab a mat and sit in between them.

You will additionally be able to meditate on your own in the beautiful garden, on the roof while watching sunset or in the cave in which Swami Ji spent three years and 108 days in meditation. Combine the yoga practice and Ayurveda treatments with your own meditation practice for a complete relaxation on this Ayurveda retreat in India.


The word Ayurveda means science of life and one of the main principles in Ayurveda is that your body is the temple of your soul. Take care of it, keep it clean, and nourish it. It will make you happier and give you a more satisfied feeling from inside.

Each body type has different needs and with Ayurvedic treatments, massages, and food, your body will be purified and strengthened so that it can regain its balance in the doshas.


The day usually starts with the 1-hour yoga class and a delicious breakfast after it. Depending on your individual schedule and treatments, you will have your Ayurvedic massage and oil treatment at this point or after a light lunch in the afternoon.

In the remaining time of the day, you can visit the charity school, to which all profits go, play with the ashram children, relax with a good book in the garden, or talk with the other guests and ashram family. On Sunday, you are free from yoga and Ayurveda for shopping, visiting Vrindavan, and the neighboring towns, or on for a trip to Agra to see the famous Taj Mahal.

  • Yashendu Goswami

    Growing up at an ashram, he learned about yoga, the holy scriptures, and the classical philosophic texts as a child. At the age of 14, he started giving lectures and thus traveling through whole India. In 1995, he started his studies of astrology and the methods of palmistry and face-reading which are connected with astrological studies. Through his studies of Ayurveda, together with years of watching how the own body reacts, Yashendu gained a profound knowledge of vegetarian food and Ayurvedic diet.

This retreat will be held in Shree Bindu Sewa Sansthan, an ashram which is located in Jaisiyaram, Vrindavan. Vrindavana is a pilgrimage town 150 kilometers south of Delhi and just one hour away from Agra where you find the Taj Mahal. The town is the place where Lord Krishna spent his early childhood and with its 5000 temples and Indian ashrams, Vrindavana is one of India’s main pilgrim cities.

The major temples in Vrindavan are Bankey Bihari Temple, Govind Dev Temple, Radha Raman Ji Temple, Rang Ji Temple, Radha Vallabh Temple, Madan Mohan Ji Temple, and Pagal Baba Temple.

Ayurvedic massages

On this retreat, you will have the chance to pamper yourself with Ayurvedic full body massage, shirodhara, kati basti, janu basti, nasya, vaman, and whatever else you might enjoy.

Ayurveda recommends massages with certain oils and Ayurvedic herbs as a support for a cleansing process. When stimulated with herbs, the right oils, and massage technique, the body releases toxins via the skin. For your well-being and relaxation, you will get daily Ayurvedic massages with oil and with well smelling and purifying herbs.

Trained Ayurvedic massage therapists will make sure that your massage is completely in line with the needs of your body. After only a few days of massage, you will feel rejuvenated, your skin will shine, and your body will thank you for this extra attention.

    "First time to India can be scary, especially if you are a woman traveling on your own. But when you arrive in the ashram and are welcomed, you feel immediately that you are part of a family. Everyone is really nice and loving. I stayed at the ashram for 1 week in 2013. Since then I have stayed in contact and feel that they are never far away. When I can I will visit again. The food in the ashram was amazing. Not to speak about the daily ayurvedic massages ; heaven !!! I've incorporated most of the advises being given when I left in my life and feel much healthier."

    "I had a wonderful week at the ashram celebrating Holi. I felt like an immediate part of the family. It was my first experience in India and after finishing a two-month stay in the country, I'm convinced it was the best introduction possible. Fun, relaxing and an excellent learning experience."

    "When I saw the Ashram, I already knew that its a safe and nice place. I felt like a member of your family and is sad that I did not have time to stay longer, one day was not enough. I reached very tired and it was the perfect place to recharge my energy, I tried ayurvedic massage for the first time and it was an amazing experience. The city is very nice, I spent 3 hours walking around the city saw beautiful temples and had a really great time."
