"Live in Harmony "
Tucked away in a fairy forest, down a gravel road, you'll find the Inner Peace Sanctuary. Removing the extras of modern life, Arpita and Arjuna have created a magical space, where when the time comes you might not want to leave. But when you do, you will have been part of an experience that can prepare you to come back into the world, ready to spread your love of yoga.
If you are considering this training, or retreat, and are looking for something that is pure, then I recommend you come here. I haven't been anywhere else so I can't compare the experience to other schools, but I spent 5 weeks here and would do it all over again in a heartbeat.

"“Rest and Radiance”"
The ashram itself is so beautiful despite the bugs and the food was delicious and vegan. I loved the Friday Kirtan which was quite a fun and unique experience.

"Start of a wonderful yogi journey "
I have been practicing yoga many years but had never delved deeper into the spiritual side of yoga. This amazing retreat opened me up to all of the dimensions of yoga with discourse and practice while also letting me live like a yogi for a week. The most delicious vegan food was prepared with love daily and the ashram itself is on the most beautiful piece of land surrounded by nature. Arupita and Arjena are two of the most amazing souls who really make you feel loved and welcome. A wonderful experience.

"Love Love Love"
This was an experience of a life time. Arjuna and Arpita are beyond words fantastic. The ashram is beautiful and has everything you need to peacefully enjoy your retreat or yoga teacher training. Both Arjuna and Arpita are very knowledgeable and teach in ways that are easy to understand. The only problem was that I wanted to stay longer, maybe forever :)

"It will change your life ... "
This was an amazing experience. Arpita and Arjuna are both very special and they have created a beautiful and peaceful environment.
The karma yogis during my stay were great as well - Resa, Lauren, Carolyn, Chase and Jacob.

"Let me lay it out for you"
if you're truly interested in being shaken to your core, are prepared to put forth an honest effort, are able to keep an open mind, and are apt to take what you learn in your short time abroad and apply it to your life long-term, then it is no coincidence you landed on this webpage. Mahadevi Ashram is a back-to-basics retreat center that removes all the distractions of the contemporary hustled life, and, under the guidance of two phenomenal, insightful teachers, Arjuna and Arpita, takes you on an internal journey to discover where you fit into this enormous, perplexing universe. By empowering students with the knowledge they need to develop all aspects of their yoga practice (as many as 8 branches if you're ambitious enough), the ashram takes you in wholeheartedly as a student, meets you where you're at spiritually, and gives you not just one, but a multitude of practices for you to experiment with and decide which customized combination best fits the unique person you are. Meanwhile, all this is done in a beautiful environment nestled away at the cusp of Lake Atilan complimented with positive energy from the karma yogi staff, delicious vegetarian food that you'll ask the recipe for nightly, and comfortable, living quarters that may or may not have the occasional insect visitor (nothing poisonous or unbearable). In a nutshell, if you're looking for long-term change more than a short break from the world, then this ashram may just be right for you.

The ashram is a great place where you can find your rest.
