Having visited the ashram 3 times, each on extended stays studying courses and practicing daily, I wholeheartedly recommend the Akhanda Yoga philosophy and approach to teaching, and indeed, to life in general! I learned so much on each trip (and never got ill – a testament to how good the food is!). It is like a sanctuary for the soul that is authentic and truly inspirational. Vishva is the real deal, not only a gifted and incredibly knowledgeable teacher but also just so much fun to be around! Everyone involved with the ashram is dedicated, kind, patient and helpful. Knowing too that the (very reasonable amount of) money spent there goes on to help local charity work, such as the village school that they built and support, is an added benefit.
