You will be staying in Sarvaguna Yoga Dhaama's campus located at Oasis Guest House, in Upper Bhagsu, about 2.5 kilometers away from Mcleodgunj town. Its geographical location makes it comfortably away from the main stream markets and distractions, which results in creating calm, quite and contemplative environment for yoga and meditation practices.

As the area around the yoga center cannot be reached through motor vehicles etc., (but is connected through comfortable pathways leading up the hill top) one can enjoy a true serenity and peaceful atmosphere of the Himalayas from there. While the geographical location of the yoga center provides a calm and quite atmosphere, the topography of the area naturally brings a meditative disposition in the yoga practitioners, giving an experience of peacefully merging with the nature.

Staying there, one can feel that he or she is relaxing in the lap of nature, healing, refreshing, and rejuvenating. Being located on a mountain side, having full of green palm trees in the backdrop, and a visual perception of beautiful valley in front and chirps and tweets of the birds around, Sarvaguna Yoga believes that their center truly provides a conducive and spiritual environment for yoga and meditation practices.

Oasis Guest House has 12 nice luxurious rooms reserved for yoga students only. There you will have the option of staying in deluxe rooms either in private or twin shared basis.

Dharamshala and Mcleodgunj are twin towns located at lower and upper areas of that point of Himalayan Mountain range. Dharamshala is mainly populated by Locals. Mcleodganj is the abode of the H.H. Dalai Lama. Many Tibetans have their permanent settlements in this town and leading a peaceful life.
