Dharamsala, a pleasant hill station, is one of the most conducive places in India to immerse oneself in the practices of yogic studies and meditation. Set in the Himalayas, one can connect to the spirits of myriads of yogis and practitioners that have practiced yoga and meditation in these mountains since time immemorial.

The place offers a wide range of outdoor activities such as hiking in the dense pine forest, going for a paraglide in India's best site near Dharamsala, visiting several waterfalls on foot, rivers with huge boulders, and sightseeing viewpoints with lots of magic feeling around these ancient sacred mountains, easy trails, and medium intensity treks all around up to reaching the snowline.

The location is culturally interesting due to several ancient Hindu and Buddhist temples, the Dalai Lamas Buddhist monastery in walking distance. All these are within walking distance from the yoga school, and this is a really unique feature. They immerse themselves in an enchanting atmosphere of sacred practices and peaceful spirit.

Amenities like ATMs, money exchanges, internet cafes, grocery stores, fruit and fruit juice stalls, shops, laundry, taxis are within two minutes' walking distance from the school and accommodation.
