Our Ashram and Yoga Schools sponsor a children’s school in Odisha where our donations are used for supplies such as school materials, uniforms and food for the children. We are very proud of the contribution we are able to make in the lives of these children and we are so grateful for all the help with these contributions. The positive impact that our donations have on these young lives brings about opportunities that the children may not have had without our donations. We believe in providing these children with a positive and happy environment in which they can learn and study to become successful in life. Anyone wishing to sponsor a child in our school is most welcome as your monthly donation will go a long way in improving a young child’s life.
We have 700 Children in the school and many of them come from very poor families. Some are also orphans and we are especially happy to help them by providing a safe and homely environment for them to feel loved and appreciated. For now we have availability for 60 students to stay full time and the rest of the children come from their home by bus.
We have seen a need to offer free education to the tribal families living within the area of Odisha. So we have now decided we will be offering all education and facilities for free to these children and their families.
There are a number of ways in which one can get involved in our Schooling Projects. For example :
We also sponsor an old age home where the elderly are taken care of with shelter, food, clothing and a warm and safe place to stay. Everything that we are able to contribute helps in providing a comfortable life for the elderly who are at the last stage of their life. This is an important role that we play in this community as there is no one else to care for them. Monthly sponsorship for an elderly person is most welcome and accepted.
At our Ashram and Yoga Schools we have started a recycling project whereby we accept donations of clothing items (clean and in good condition), shoes, toiletries (unused shampoo’s or soaps) or anything that a traveler no longer needs. These items are put in our Charity shop and then given to the needy in the Rishikesh community. The items are also sold and proceeds are used for things such as blankets, socks and warm items for the Sadhu’s in winter. Donations of items or money for this purpose can be made at the Ashram or Kundalini Yoga Studio where the charity shop is located.
Every day we offer a warm cup of Chai tea to anyone in need as well as a free meal once a week at the Ashram. We believe charity begins at home and our Ashram is a home and family for all.
Reiki is a form of alternative therapy commonly referred to as energy healing. Energy healing targets the energy fields around the body. According to practitioners, energy can stagnate in the body where there has been physical injury or possibly emotional pain. In time, these energy blocks can cause illness.
Our Reiki Healing session aims to help improve the flow of energy and remove blocks in a similar way to acupuncture or acupressure. Improving the flow of energy around the body can enable relaxation, reduce pain, speed healing, and reduce other symptoms of illness.
Students from our Yoga Schools and volunteers participate in our Karma Yoga program where we come together every Sunday to clean up different areas in Rishikesh. We are mostly focused on the water ways, small streams, that are polluted and that flow into our Mother Ganga river. We wish to maintain a clean environment and especially to eliminate plastic pollution that goes into our Holy river and destroys our waters and the beauty of our small city, Rishikesh. We feel that whenever we come together on clean up projects like this it inspires others to have more awareness about being clean, not being wasteful and not polluting. We hope to continue with these weekly clean ups to encourage all residents, visitors and students to participate and feel the joy that comes from doing community work. When we give of ourselves, from the heart, the positive vibration of this action is felt not only in the immediate area but throughout the Universe. Mother Nature appreciates all the effort we make to keep her pristine and clean.
Kundalini Yoga Ashram is one of the best place to get Yoga teacher Training in Rishikesh.The teachers, accommodation are very good and the founder, Guru Ji is very peaceful.I highly recommend this place.
I recently completed 200 hours of Kundalini and 300 hours of Holistic training at Kundalini Yoga Ashram. The teachers were amazing, my life is forever changed. The food was really good too. My favorite part is that this is an authentic ashram, a lot of the other ones are more touristy. The Guru and his family live on site, so its kind of like doing a homestay. It's really special. I cannot wait to return!
I stayed at Kundalini Yoga Ashram as a volunteer and it was just AWESOME!!! I had such a great time with the most lovely people! Best food, best acommendation, best teachers! The staff is amazing and helpful and they do their best for u to have an incredible time. I can highly recommend to be part of this family. Love, Christian
What an amazing place. A beautiful location and really really really competent and engaging teachers. Lovely food, friendly staff and a really amazing experience. I learnt so much in such a short space of time. The course was pretty intensive but I like things like that. I haven't felt this fit, healthy or happy in a really long time and I'm so glad I came. I did 200 hours kundalini yoga teacher training and will be back to do more. Would have stayed if my visa wasn't running out, for sure. Thank you
