Preksha Yoga Ashram

Preksha Yoga Ashram is a live-in school, a place of learning where you can focus your mind and learn from our experienced and knowledgeable teachers. The Ashram is set up to mimic that of India’s traditional and ancient Gurukul System, where you will be guided and supported by our teachers throughout your stay with us. This environment is simplistic in nature and practicality, allowing the space for growth and stillness.

The Ashram is situated amongst the tall banana and coconut trees and surrounded by lush green vegetation, submerged beautifully in the rich nature of Mandrem, Goa. Tranquil and secure in its setting the Ashram is a mere 7-minute walk from Mandrem beach and the soft deep sounds of the sea can often be heard from your beds.
