The dedicated teachers at Suddha Anand Yogshala have one intention; to share all the knowledge & wisdom that has been passed down to them from their guru's with others who wish to live and learn the ancient yogic lifestyle. Shara and Sachin created this shala on the premises of pure devotion and service. Both have experienced the transformational power of the yogic path first hand and they felt compelled to share their knowledge and experiences with others so they too can begin to connect with the authentic self. Their dream is for more people to become aware of the power of yoga and to embrace this simple Natural yogic lifestyle; pure, healthy, free from stress, negativity, poor health and bad habits. They believe knowledge is power and by teaching others, they are empowering more people to take control of their lives, to rid themselves of toxic mind attitudes, bad habits and poor health, and instead reconnect with the authentic self, become present, happy, healthy, and to shine brilliantly like we were all born to do.
Our newly constructed ashram is located at the north end of the yoga village, in Ram Jhula, Rishikesh. We overlook the Rishikesh valley, the glorious mountains, the expansive jungle landscape, and we neighbor onto farmland. Our building is nestled in a very quiet pocket, tucked away from the markets and any noise disturbance. This safe environment is a place where all students’ minds will be completely at peace thus guaranteeing an enriching experience. The only sounds you will hear are that of nature. This is a truly inspirational place to re-connect with nature, and it is an exceptional place for one to go inward and deepen their practice.
Our brand new, fully equipped, state of the art, yogshala floats high in the sky and offers spectacular jungle and mountain views, lots of natural light, and extraordinary energy. When the windows are open, the fresh breeze rolls through the shala and the soothing sound of birds and bell chimes can be heard in the distance. We feel incredibly blessed to have found such a beautiful space for our shala.
We have taken over one year to search for the most ideal environment for our ashram. We have sincerely considered to all the requests and feedback of our students and finally found the perfect place to call a home. We are honored to be able to offer our students such a beautiful and peaceful environment.
It is with great joy and excitement that we announce Suddha Anand Yogshala has relocated and both locations are now centrally located in North Cliff, Varkala. Our main Ashram which houses our 200 hour program is located in a peaceful, quiet part of Varkala, only 5 minutes’ walk to the Arabian Sea, and nearby to many lovely restaurants, cafes, shops, and attractions. The property is tucked away in a quiet residential area making it an ideal place for study, practice, meditation, and sadhana.
Our second yogshala which houses our 300 hour program is also located within a 5 minute walk to the beach and is a spectacular place to study, practice, unwind, and rejuvenate.
Our advanced 300 Hour Yoga & Ayurveda Yoga Teacher Training programs commence October 9th, 2017. We will also be offering pranayama, meditation, vinyasa flow intensives, and weekly yoga retreats at our second yogshala during months when we are not offering our advanced yoga teacher training. These shorter programs are available for those who wish to immerse themselves in the practices of yoga however cannot commit to the month long program.
