During your retreat you will be accommodated at the Yoga Niketan Ashram. You will stay in an ashram-style single, clean, and safe room with a private bathroom. Double room available upon request.

During the hot season, air-conditioned rooms are offered. You will also find a desk, chair, and an armchair, a little porch or balcony to relax or read your favorite book. Towels, soap, and toilet paper are provided.

All rooms are simple, yet quaint, and immersed in lush greenery. The yoga studio is fully equipped with mats, blocks, straps, and bolsters and is within a walking distance from each accommodation.

Ashrams usually represent a return to a simpler way of living, which is very different from a hotel. Generally, there is a more communal atmosphere and often an expectation that guests will pitch in with whatever needs doing.
