The Arhanta Yoga Ashram India is a traditional yoga school located near Khajuraho, also famous as the City of Temples, in Madhya Pradesh in India. The yoga ashram covers 17 acres of green land, situated midst beautiful lush nature, surrounded by hills, forests and seemingly endless fields. The natural beauty and varied landscaping of the region makes it a unique location for an ashram. On our page sightseeing in Khajuraho you find more information about Khajuraho itself.
The life at a yoga ashram is simple and focused only on the teachings and your spiritual growth rather than on the comforts of daily life. It is important to understand that an ashram is minimalistic in facilities and does not offer luxuries like a hotel. It is only suitable for those who wish to experience yogic lifestyle and focus on self-reflection and growth.
The Arhanta Yoga Ashram is the perfect place to follow a spiritual practice. It provides a peaceful, serene and secluded environment where you can focus entirely on your personal spiritual growth. The quiet and peaceful environment gives you the chance to renounce your material dependencies and to bring your focus within. At the same time it allows you to connect with the beautiful nature around you, experiencing a deep connection with the creation. The secluded and beautiful location promotes clarity and self-reflection. This helps to go deeper into yoga and meditation practice.
Along with professional yoga teacher trainings in India, yoga retreats and yoga vacations, the ashram also organizes various charitable works from time to time in nearby villages to improve living standards and general awareness of the local villages.
