It is a quiet, peaceful meditation center for those who pursue healthy life and look for a place to rest and meditate. Ashram is embraced by U-san village, represented as cow, the holy animal in India, so this place is full of holy, clean energy. We provide vegetarian meals from our organic garden and run a training program based on eco-friendly Satyananda yoga. We also have a mud log cabin. It is an open space for people who want to meditate and rest whether a short or long period of time. We welcome anyone whose mind and body are exhausted from daily life.

PRACTICE OF ECO-FRIENDLY LIFE / FARMING
Swami Satyamitra tends the organic garden, but she is not a professional farmer. She cooks vegetables from the garden for visitors, or gives out to our neighbors and friends, so she does not use any pesticides or fertilizers.
