"If you want kind, this is not the retreat for you..."
1. Ashram is beautiful with vast libraries, shrine, and museum.
2. The caregiver of the ashram is a kind and quiet man.
3. The teacher organized a surprise kirtan session with the caregiver that was nice though likely uncomfortable for others in the group who did not know mantras or were unfamiliar with kirtans as we were all expect to lead the chants.
4. The teacher was very well versed in the yoga body of knowledge and superb at yoga nidra techniques. One should know that she is not a member of the Ramakrishna group (associated with the ashram) and that she is a disciple of Satyananda Saraswati who has a controversial history.
