There is an old saying “Where we live & what we eat, affects our mind”.
Akshi Yogashala enjoys the privilege of being situated in the yoga capital of the world. The calm breeze of the Holy Ganges purifies every cell and pore in the body. The sanctity of the sages and seers meditating near the banks of Ganges bless every soul in their vicinity. Ideal for pursuing yoga teacher training courses, the school is proud of its association to The Land of the Gods. People from the various parts of the world flock here to find inner peace and enjoy a tranquil time. We endeavor to accommodate their wanderlust and be a courteous host. We receive 100’s of students & guests every year and are accustomed to understanding the needs of our students no matter where they are from. In order to accommodate our students we have amalgamated and constructed a modern yet ashram like infrastructure.
The school has been set up in a way that offers a heightened experience with the space and airiness needed to practice yoga. Our infrastructure is very simple but we never miss out on anything our students require. When we practice yoga & meditation, we require space which is why student rooms are ventilated, airy and spacious. Each room is equipped with a coffee table, a cupboard and ensuite bathroom. All other facilities like a washing machine, internet etc. are also available.

Any Yoga Teacher Training course is incomplete if not enough focus is laid on the food the practitioner is eating. Akshi Yogashala is committed to carry out an all-round growth of the students and with this intent we have undertaken Ayurvedic cooking methodologies. Each body type varies from one another, while it is important to understand one’s constitution, the school extends holistic diet beneficial for all our students. Intensive workout requires balanced and invigorating diet which is why we’ve hired experienced Ayurvedic chefs. Light and healthy vegan food complementing the demands of Ashtanga Vinyasa and Hatha yoga, is the reason why teachers emphasize eating only ashram cooked food. This is significant in detoxifying the body during your stay with us. Daily meals include breakfast, lunch, dinner, tea, juices and other needs if need be.
