Students will have Sundays to relax and rejuvenate after their heavy schedule throughout the week. We organise several activities for our students to participate in during their day off and all activities are included in the students fees. This is a great chance to spend time together outside of the classroom while getting to know Indian culture and landscape.

Other ashrams include the Kriya Yoga Ashram and the Shivananda Ashram. These are considered spiritual labyrinths which are dedicated to the practice of yoga and made popular by their famous yogis who practiced there.
