During our yoga teacher training courses we provide our students with clean rooms, bedding and attached western style toilets with hot & cold water.We are glad to say that now we have taken an ashram for our Yoga Teacher Training students. Hence, from now onwards none of our student would have to stay in hotel infact everyone would stay in ashram which is facilitated with spacious 53 rooms and is just neighbour of our main school. Both of our ashrams are situated at the banks of Mother Ganga. Thus, each student can now have the privilege to feel the energy of mother Ganga and attain her bliss.
