Where are we located?
AyurYoga Eco-ashram is located in a 18 acre Organic Farm, on the bank of River Kabini, in Mysore District, Karntaka, India. Our location is far away from any hustle and bustle of the modern India and surrounded with agricultural fields for several miles all around. With panoramic views of the valleys and hills around, our surroundings change colour every month, as farmers grow varieties of crops at different seasons.
Though geographically located in the state of Karnataka, the borders of Kerala and Tamilanadu are less than one hour drive from the ashram. During your stay at our yoga Ashram in India, you can explore all three states of Karnakata, Kerala and Tamil Nadu during the trips organized on days-off. We also help the students to travel before/after the course through our associated travel agents. Please read our Travel in India page for nearby attractions.

- We suggest all our guests to wear appropriate dressing within the ashram and especially when you go out of the ashram.
- Indians are not used to seeing shoulders, mid-riff, knees, especially of women.
- Showing off thighs and cleavage in India is asking for trouble.
- Though you might see many semi clad local men, it is not considered respectable for educated city folks.
- Wearing Indian dress gets you respect and friendly smiles, may be an invite for a chai, chat or dinner!
