    They always do their best to make you feel home. You will be all here to grow in true yoga and not for having holidays only. The accommodations are comfortable but are still not a hotel. So according to your booking and availability you will sleep in a tent, hut, or dorms. They will always provide you with a real mattress, good blankets, and a pillow. The sleeping area and the bathroom are shared. It might be challenging for some students but it is a great way to practice detachment-aparigraha and improve your contentment capacity-santosha.

    You will have an early daily yoga practice while following the rhythm of the sun. After having brunch, you will be allowed to have some rest before continuing into deep awareness. Yogaji’s program can be viewed in Yoga Alliance page under Durga-Ji yoga. Yogaji follows the standard of Yoga Alliance and enriches it through their experience.

    The food is daily prepared by those who are in the food seva. They change the seva regularly so that everyone has the chance to feed his friend one day. The meals are always a vegetarian (which implies no animal) meal, as it is very important to practice compassion with animals by not harming them, and to control one's own desire to eat meat especially for a teacher of yoga. Ahimsa-non violence means to accept not to kill a living being so to feed oneself. The food is always great, tasty, and lovely. You will be invited to share a mantra before the lunch so to celebrate this moment.
