The appeal of the resort should be more for the spirituality aspect. They have 4 (required) hours a day of meditation, chanting and lecture. There aren't paid staff, but instead its volunteers. The yoga itself was fair, it was basic hatha yoga. You lay in Savasana (corps pose) for a few mins after every pose, so the pace is slow....

I loved my 6-day stay at Sivananda, and seriously considered extending my visit. Many of those who I met while I was there said that they'd been there 4, 5 6 and more times prior. I can see why and can't wait to book another visit as soon as I can. While the guest rooms are modest, they are comfortable...

I traveled here with several friends for a 2 day stay at the ashram. This was our second time staying at the ashram and it was, once again, a very nice experience. I shared a Oceanside Deluxe room with a friend and enjoyed the accommodations. It was a minimalist, clean room with wood floors and a balcony overlooking the beach....

This was my first visit to an ashram and after a scary cab ride to find the hidden boat dock, I was a bit panicked when I read the rules at check-in. No caffeine?! No tiki bar on the beach?! No trespassing on the Atlantis resort?! I ended up loving it and meeting great new friends. I think this is...

Hi Wisconsin Foodie 150, Thanks so much for this wonderful review. It can definitely be a shock to the system when you are entering the ashram for the first time but it can be a wonderful transformation and healing experience. We cannot wait to see you again. Stephanie

There is no way to know what to expect until arrival, so I came with no expectations except for one: that the people who live and serve here would at least smile on a regular basis. In fact, smiles are few and far between at the ashram. The daily satsangs have a funerary quality. Its surreal to observe during chanting...

My wife and I spent 5 rejuvenating days at the Ashram. The food was excellent and plentiful. The environment was tranquil and incredibly beautiful. The vacation program we participated in gave us the option to partake in all the excellent offerings (meditations, yoga classes, chanting and special presentations by guest teachers) or just keep to ourselves. We left with a...

I visited the ashram for about ten days this month. Overall it was a great experience and I would recommend it to anyone wishing to get away for a simple solo yoga vacation. Do your research before you book this trip to know what you're signing up for. I went to the ashram knowing the accommodations are simple, the food...
