Ashram guests also embody the ashram’s foundation of “unity in diversity,” visiting from different countries, speaking diverse languages, and sharing their many walks of life. To accommodate for the wide variety of visitors, the ashram offers assorted program options for newcomers, returning guests, solo travelers, couples, friends, and families.
Some guests come to learn yoga for the first time, while others simply seek a holistic beach vacation to rejuvenate and refresh.
