The Krishna Village can host up to 60 people in a combination of rooms, dorms and camping spots. There are usually around 25 full time volunteers who work in organic gardens and maintain the grounds, 10 long-term community members and 15 to 25 retreat guests or Karma yogis. All rooms have shared amenities. The amenities include showers, toilets and a coin operated laundry. Common areas include the kitchen and campfire area (the heart of the Krishna Village), the reading and the yoga hall, where classes take place.
The Krishna Village has 6 double and 11 single rooms. They are all set in former shipping containers, that have been renovated and turned into simple but comfortable accommodation.
For some of the volunteers and yoga teacher trainees, Krishna Village provides dorms (1 male, 1 female, each for up to 4 people) and one double room. The dorms are simple but practical and have bunk beds and wardrobe space for your belongings.
Set among beautiful mango and lychee trees in the eastern garden, Krishna Village Eco Yoga Community camp ground can host up to 20 tents and 5 camper vans. The area for the vans is equipped with electricity. The amenities block is only 50 meters away.
In modern societies, yoga has been deconstructed to be only a shadow of its complete whole. It is far from the complexity and power of the original yogic wisdom, which spans all areas of life and provides a holistic system of health, wellbeing and spiritual connection. At the Krishna Village, you will revive and learn yoga in its wholeness, so you can be a yogi, rather than just do some yoga. Krishna Village Eco Yoga Community Teacher Training is, therefore, a full immersion program that spans 200 hrs and will allow you to experience yogic living in its entirety. From daily morning yoga to seva in organic gardens, from philosophy classes to healthy food preparation, from kirtan singing to mantra meditation, you will live and breathe yoga, while being immersed in a kind, loving and supportive community. You will not only learn all required practices to become a fully accredited yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance, but you will also gain teaching practice with real students.
