The accommodation is known as West Wood. This is a private cottage situated in the hills in a very quiet location in Manali, Himachal Pradesh state, India.

You can encounter adventure on the myriad trekking trails and routes while skiing on the snow slopes or rafting down the Beas river. As its magical charm enamours, you will ebulliently agree that it has rightly been christened as the valley of the Gods.
This is an intensive yoga and nature rejuvenation program led by Guru Yogacharini Amrita who brings over 20 years of dedicated research and personal experience to her unique yoga and breathing practices as well as remarkable wisdom and knowledge about the science of yoga. Yoga is not merely a form of exercise for the body. It is an ancient wisdom for a healthier, happier, and more peaceful way of living, which ultimately leads to union with the self.
Yoga is not just performing some acrobatic poses or huffing and puffing some pranayama or “sleeping” your way through the so-called meditation. It is an integrated way of life in which awareness and consciousness must be cultivated systematically. True yoga works with nature and is able to awaken the higher powers of nature within you. Embark on sacred, powerful, and healing journeys to the Himalayas for health, peace, and happiness.
