  • Descripción


    Our Ashram is a spiritual center committed to exploring Indian philosophy as a living tradition, faithful to its origins, yet compatible with today's world.

    Our guests would enjoy the rustic charm, serene ambience and quietness of our Homestay with a total feel at home effect. Yet, they will be very close to city and shopping centers, touristic attractions of natural, cultural value, and of historical significance. The homestay features ethnic and eco-friendly architecture.

    We are interested in meeting new people and sharing experience. Our center is able to provide a welcoming friendly environment for visitors from all over the world.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    Workawayers will get a great experience regarding cultural exchange which improves friendship and mutual understanding. There are so many advantages of cultural exchange that would benefit not only us, our guests but also our respective worlds.

    Cultural exchange offers a great chance to get creative about improving communication and problem solving skills,

    As soon as our guests have started interacting with us, there will begin a process of learning the living language,

    Culture can not be taught in classrooms or schools. The best way is to dive into and experience it in authentic environments. This will bring along with it significant insights into other perspectives, cultivation of empathy, and friendship,

    Navigating through the social customs of another country allows us to be more socially adaptable and flexible.

    Gardening: Our center has a backyard in which we would like to grow vegetable with the aim of establishing a self-sustaning system also in terms of food. We would welcome workawayers helping us, working with us in reaching this aim.

    Language exchange: We offer Sanskrit and Malayalam courses. Besides, we can offer German on demand. In exchange, we are open to other languages. So, if a workawayer is interested in learning Sanskrit or Malayalam, s/he can learn them on our premises. In return, s/he can offer to teach any languages other than Sanskrit and Malayalam. We have well-equipped classrooms to be able to offer a satisfying learning atmosphere.

    Yoga and meditation: homestay is located on the premises of the spiritual center School of Bhagavad Gita which is a Registered Yoga School (RYS) with Yoga Alliance. We offer 200-Hour-Yoga Teacher Training (including food and accomodation). Our programme includes various Hatha Yoga practices and a detailed study of Surya Namaskar, Pranayama, meditation, study of anatomy and physiology, Yoga Philosophy which contains lecture sessions of Bhagavad Gita and Yoga Sutra. The course follows the traditional path and is highly practice intensive in nature. Again in return, workawayers can help us in general maintenance, in the house or they can teach.

    Cooking workshop: Kerala is every food-lover's paradise. For our guests who are interested in trying the recipes of the traditional yet simple, zesty, flavourful Kerala Cousine, we offer cooking workshops in our homestay. Workawayers would have the chance to take part in cooking workshops we offer for their help in our house.

    Help in the house work: We offer lodging and three meals a day in return for general help in the house work and help with computers in our office.
