What is a Yoga Ashram ?
It is a place for spiritual practice. It promotes self reflection and self control through very simple living and spiritual environment. A yoga ashram is also a residential yoga school for learning and practicing yoga, meditation and yogic philosophies in the traditional way.
Why a Yoga Ashram ?
