Guest Programmes at Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama

In addition, Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama (SRSG) offers guest programmes in the form of individual (or group) spiritual retreats.

Foundational Instructions of the guest programmes:

  • To experience some level of calm mind, relaxation, or stillness while at SRSG
  • To know how to sit properly and how to meditate
  • To know about the “Himalayan Tradition”: foundation, history, and basic theory etc.
  • To understand the meaning of “YOGA” and “MEDITATION” fully
  • To apply yoga and meditation into daily life.
  • To deepen their practice
  • To keep the connection via full moon meditations and/or home centers

We aim to individualize our progammes, taking into account the particular areas of interests of our guests, but all newcomers do go through a series of classes that introduce, orient and share the foundation practices and philosophy of the Himalayan Tradition.

Individual Spiritual Retreats:

Guests are offered a daily schedule of instruction in meditation, pranayama (breathing practices), relaxation, hatha yoga, and yoga philosophy in accordance with their individual goals. With the welcome interview, the programme is tailored for an individual. Every guest can experience one day silence retreat through the weekly ashram official silence day.

Group Retreats:

The SRSG staff will also help design programs for groups to meet their specific needs. The campus can accommodate up to 100 participants.


Participants in all the programmes follow the daily ashram schedule which begins at 5:00 AM and runs until 9:30 PM. Time for reading, journaling, and reflection is always available.

Classes on the basic yoga practices are regularly scheduled as well as lecture courses for Gurukulam which guests may attend as appropriate.

Video recordings of Swami Rama lecture series on topics such Yoga Sutras and Upanishads are featured on a regular basis.
