    We are a 12 acre land in the foothills of the Himalayas. Living in one with nature, we are on a mission of planting 11000 trees and growing our own food, eventually becoming fully sustainable. We welcome volunteers all year round as there are many ongoing projects and we welcome open minds, willing to share their skills, opinions and creative energy. As we are an traditional ashram, you'll be provided with delicious yogic ( sattvic ) food cooked on fire and you'll enjoy the peaceful and fruitful forest all around you.

    8 people in staff
    - 1 cook
    - 1 kitchen assistant ( preparing food, washing dishes )
    - 2 people taking care of the gardens and agriculture
    - 1 priest
    - 2 yoga teachers
    - 1 doctor of ayurveda and naturopathy

    We are located just 40 mins drive from Rishikesh, with easy way to reach us by public transport. The famous Neelkanth temple is only 4 km away and so are other temples, caves and waterfalls to explore on a day off ( Sunday ) . During your work days we are expecting you to stay committed to your work and help us to create an environment of caring and sharing.
