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
Yogiville prohibits the use and possession of drugs, alcohol and meat or meat bi-products. We have a zero tolerance policy for anybody who does not abide by the Code of Conduct, which incorporates these specific restrictions.
At Yogiville India, we are quite traditional with our approach. For example, the food prepared is grown onsite or locally, is organic, and follows 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 is the natural environment which will support the retreat. We believe that reconnecting with nature is part of the yoga retreat experience. Yogiville covers 13 acres of land on the edge 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, with increasingly diverse flora & fauna. We have several fields of orchards and farmland growing many types of fruits and vegetables to feed our guests, workers, and cows.
Nestled in between the gardens, orchards, and fields, the facilities for the yoga and meditation retreat include a large open-air Yoga shala, Meditation bowl, and temple area. Also on the Ashok Tree grounds is the Sita Devi Charity School, which educates around 100 primary school children per year, incorporating yoga and meditation into the curriculum. Karma yoga at Sita Devi is one of many optional daytime activities during the retreat.
We are served by three airports in the region, Chennai, Bangalore and Trichy (Tiruchirappalli). Chennai Airport Transfers included in Fee, other airport transfers can be arranged at an additional cost.
Upon registration, you will be provided with a complete information package.
Strictly no drugs, no alcohol, no meat and no meat bi-products are permitted onsite.
