Yogiville India

Yogiville India is a comprehensive site for travellers, retreat guests, training groups and day visitors.  The entire location has been developing since 2012 at the keen vision of Yogi Ashokananda, designed for sadhana.

At the heart of our site, is the yogashala purpose buit in the round and open to the elements for group and individual yoga practices.

Complementing the yogashala, you will find the Meditation Dome, a stone structure 7 levels into the earth and equidistance from ground to the centre of the dome, a magical place for mediation, self reflection, chanting or simple peace and quiet.
