Co-founded by Yogrishi Vishvketu in 2007, the Ashram is a comfortable, nurturing sanctuary for spiritual seekers from around the world, and is the hub of Akhanda Yoga, holistic, non-sectarian teachings that do not teach the wisdom of only one lineage, but draw on multiple sources and voices.
The Ashram is also a charitable trust that works to support the local community through weekly food drives (for associations such as a diabetes centre and a local leprosy colony), full moon feasts (for mendicant monks), and educational and Yoga scholarships.
A number of scholarships have been given to local students for both higher education and yoga teaching certification. Beneficiaries have graduated from local universities in graphic design, MA Yoga, PhD Yoga as well as the Akhanda Yoga Teacher Training programs. Many are now successfully earning a living teaching Yoga across northern India.
