What Makes This Retreat Special

Conducted in a rare, mystical setting in the Himalayas, this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience allowing you to truly dive deep and experience the spirit of yoga in its entirety.

From the magnificence of the location to the vibrations of the Ashram's chants, this is a soulful, transcendental experience of self-development, empowerment, and realization.

During our hike in the magical Himalayas, we will stay in a cottage-style basecamp perched on a hilltop and surrounded by thick oak forest. Participants will wake up by the sounds of nature’s wildlife and fill their senses by the grandeur and breathtaking views of the landscape.

THE LOCATION: GRAND HIMALAYAS REGION

From time immemorial the Himalayas are known as the cradle of Vedic and Yogic civilization. The aura of the Himalayan peaks and their wild yet peaceful natural beauty, reflected in their grandeur and mysticism, enthralled and intrigued the yogis, mystics, tapaswis, scholars and ascetics from distinct traditions and schools. Great exponents like Shri Chandracharya of the Udasin Lineage, Shankaracharya of the Advaita Vedanta, Gautama the Buddha, Mahavatar Baba of the Kriya Yoga and many others treaded the same path and sought refuge in the mighty yet subtle, stubborn yet transformational, rough yet compassionate embrace of the benevolent Himalayas. This wisdom pertaining to Yoga cultivated and developed in this part of the world, apart from just laying a strong foundation for its own lineage, also ensured that the practice of Yoga and spirituality survives the onslaught of time and remains as inclusive as it was envisioned and indoctrinated by the yogis of the antiquity.

THE ASHRAM: SHRI KALYANIKA HIMALAYA DEVASTHANAM: BACKGROUND & CONTEXT

  • Shri Kalyanika Himalaya Devasthanam (also known as Dol) is situated in a stunning, pristine area of the Himalayas region in the Uttarakhand State of Northern India. Surrounded by untouched forests of unparalleled beauty, Dol Ashram enjoys the blessings of Mother Nature at its best and offers a gorgeous canvas for spiritual immersion, self-exploration & body-mind-soul alignment.
  • The Ashram, a beacon of the Sanatana Tradition & Vedic lifestyle, was built by Kalyan Das Babaji with the goal to educate and uplift the spiritual lives of people enabling thus the restoration of life balance & unleashing the potential of our human form. As per the Sanatana Tradition, a human being is the architect of the circumstances he/she creates and hence by being aware about this truth he/she can create a life of fulfilment, by rediscovering the miracle that each person has the potential to untap.
