Location

In a quiet, contemplative and energised space near Jeolikote in Nainital District, a hermitage was built for yogis in a space where many Himalayan masters have meditated since 1133. This hermitage was intended for meditating ascetics and built as a symbolic reminder of particular realms and fields familiar to yogis. The Mahayog Academy has now opened this hermitage to create a meeting ground between the spiritual masters and sages of India and the 21st century person who is a product of the environment he is familiar with. We request you to respect tradition and simplicity and re-acquaint yourself with our ancient heritage and Vedic traditions. While all modern facilities are being provided for your ease, please keep in mind this is not a hotel or a vacation destination.

There are high levels of stress in contemporary urban society. Individuals are aware of a deeply felt need to learn techniques that enhance well-being and improve lifestyle.

There are high levels of stress in contemporary urban society. Individuals are aware of a deeply felt need to learn techniques that enhance well-being and improve lifestyle. The 5-day Basic Courses are designed to promote physical fitness and provide mental and intellectual stimulation that boosts motivation, optimises potential and generates self-confidence. They focus on healthy coping mechanisms and emotional maturity. They put you in touch with the core of your being, which is spiritual in essence. This is achieved through yoga - the complementary practices of yama, niyama, asana, pranayama, pratyahara, dharana and dhyana which lead to samadhi (regulation, restraint and control, postures, breath energy, withdrawal of the senses, concentration, contemplation and meditation).

The 5 day course is intended for beginners to meditation and yogic practices and also for meditators who want a conducive environment to meditate. The courses are geared towards personal and spiritual development. They provide knowledge of yogic techniques and practices and give an opportunity for interaction with spiritually minded people.

Please register early to avoid disappointment, because the course size is limited to 30 participants only. Mahayogi Kapil Adwait, Mahamandaleshwar of the Juna Akhara, and a Himalayan Master will personally be taking special classes in some of the advanced courses.
