Welcome to AyurYoga Eco Ashram India
AyurYoga Eco-Ashram in India is a traditional Hatha Yoga and Ayurveda retreat centre located on the banks of River Kabini in the peaceful countryside of Mysore, Karnataka. We are one-hour driving distance from the ancient mountains and forests of Western Ghats in Kerala and Tamil Nadu in South India.
AyurYoga Eco-Ashram is set in 18 acres of organic farm that employs about 40 Indian staff, with 4 yoga spaces in Nature and traditional Ayurveda Hospital with medically qualified doctors and therapists from Kerala. With 40 Eco-friendly rooms and Organic vegetarian food, the ashram is an ideal place to experience authentic forms of Yoga and Ayurveda in India. Unlike the seasonal yoga studios in touristy towns of Rishikesh, Goa, Dharamsala etc., this Yoga Ashram caters to the serious students who are seeking to make a long term commitment to the practice and teaching of Yoga. The ashram is often ranked in media among the top 10 places to study ayurveda and yoga in India. Other than love for Mother Nature and Spiritual Healing of Body-Mind, we are equally passionate about cultural exchange between East and West, as envisioned by Swami Vivekananda who remains as our inspiration.
We welcome the International yogis and eco-conscious guests who are seeking an authentic experience beyond yoga mats, beyond the new-age or touristy experience of Yoga and Ayurveda. Ayurveda Hospital in the ashram offers Ayurveda Treatments throughout the year but limited to only 10 clients at one time.
Yoga Teacher Training Retreats at our ashram are counted among the top 10 Yoga Teacher Training in the world. We have an experience of teaching 60+ Yoga Teacher Trainings, graduating more than 1100+ graduates from 40+ countries. Our Yoga Retreats for Beginners and Intensive Yoga Retreat for regular yogis are rated among best yoga retreats in India and limited to 10 clients per each group.
Our unique style of Hatha Yoga, Meditation, and Yoga Philosophy, taught by traditional / monastic teachers, combined with healthy vegetarian food and eco-friendly accommodations in a peaceful nature makes our ashram as a safe place for foreigners, especially single women, to learn and study Yoga courses in India.

About AyurYoga Eco-Ashram
As one of the first Eco-Ashrams in India, we are a non-religious, non-sectarian, retreat place run by simple but open-minded yogis who wants to innovate and evolve the ancient practices of Yoga and Ayurveda to the practical needs of modern times.
AyurYoga Eco-Ashram is a safe place to explore Indian spirituality and healing traditions without being brain-washed by any religious or sectarian ideas about Life. At the same time, we are not New-Age gurus wanting to please westerners with a make-believe spiritual bubble where life seems too good to be true!
We do not impose any fixed manuals, lifestyles, books, traditions, rules, etc. We do not promise Nirvana (enlightenment) or deep spiritual experiences nor do we bang you with some abstract spiritual philosophies that are difficult to practice in the real life. What we teach is simple yoga and meditation practices that can be of practical use in your daily life, to improve our connections with Food, Sleep, Relationships, Families and make us efficient with our work.
We encourage our students to lead ‘a dynamic life with a peaceful heart’, not a lazy escapism from the society in search of eternity in Himalayas! We don’t like to brand or label what we teach as philosophy, or associate with any religion, culture, or books! Because this wisdom is always present within us! What we do is just to remind you of all the beauty, grace and wisdom you have been holding within all the time.
We are not really an organization with a lot of visionary ideas to transform anybody. We don’t accept donations from the public nor grants from any religious or government organizations nor do we accept any free or cheap labour from our staff. We are simple yoga seekers who are trying to live in peace with Nature and walking the path of Unknown. We are happy to share this space with similar minded people who are also on the path of exploring the purpose of life and trying to lead a meaningful life.
