Yogi Ashokananda is the founder of Prana Kriya Yoga.  This form of yoga takes as its foundation the ancient science of kriya yoga, and uses the movement of the body combined with breath retentions to harmonise and unite the flow of the physical movement in our bodies (kriya) with its energetic power. It uses a completely different set of kriyas to the usual asanas you will find in most yoga practices.

TTC Course Teacher – Yogi Ashokananda 

Yogi Ashokananda is an expert and pioneer as a practising master of yoga, mindfulness and meditation and a speaker on humanity and spiritual philosophy. Raised in India, now residing in the U.K., he has been practising yoga since early childhood when his Grandfather was his first teacher. Over many years Yogi Ashokananda has been fortunate to develop his teaching, experience and education of yoga under some of the great, remote, Indian masters and siddhas. He has taught the teachings of the Bihar School of Yoga, the Sivananda Ashram, hatha yoga and meditation at the Shri Ved Niketan Ashram, Rishikesh and the Yogamaya Ashram in Vrindavan. Now he teaches a number of his own profound disciplines and insights which have their roots in ancient, sacred Indian tradition. 

Location Information – Yogiville India

At Yogiville India, we are quite traditional with our approach, for example, the food prepared is grown onsite or locally, is organic and will follow sattvic principles.  We see yoga as a way of life, not just a physical practice and the approach we take to nutrition / food is just one example.    Another example, is how critical yoga and meditation are to the onsite charity school we support.  You will see for yourself, the 1st two classes of each day for all of the students are yoga and meditation.   The classes / practice are integral to their education, health, behaviour and focus.  We really hope that the school can change the future for these children, as we get back to basics with yoga.  And yet another example is the natural environment which will support the retreat. 

We reside on 13 acres of land on the outside of a village, which is on the outskirts of the town of Tiruvannamalai in South India.  The land has been transformed over the past few years into a homeland for many new and returning species, flora & fauna.  We have a variety of fields dedicated to orchards and farming of many types of vegetables for people, the cows & dogs we rescued. 

In between the agricultural aspects, the focal points for the yoga and meditation retreat are the Yogashala,  Meditation Bowl, fire ceremony and temple area.   We believe that reconnecting with nature is part of the yoga retreat experience.
