A Typical Day at the Ashram
The day begins with a morning class of asana, pranayama, meditation and Vedic chanting. According to the type of stay you choose varied and interesting karma yoga projects are allocated in the morning and afternoon. Yoga nidra (relaxation) is practiced before lunch. Periods of silence are present for reflection and peace.
Other traditional practices include kirtan (mantra chanting with music), vedic mantra chanting, havan (fire ceremonies) and mantra chanting for peace, welbeing and environmental protection.
