ABOUT US
 SATYANANDA YOGA ASHRAM KOREA mountain meditation retreat is located in Jang-heung, Junranam-do, 50 minutes by bus from Gwangju. 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.

 The ashram is 50 minutes from Gwangju and from Seoul it is 3hrs and 20 mins by bus or 1.5 by KTX to Gwangju.
