A place of natural harmony to release, refocus and recalibrate the self, Govardhan Ecovillage is the ideal spiritual pathway to discover the self.
Located at the foothills of the Sahyadri mountain ranges, there is little, apart from the rhythm of the blowing wind and the meditative hum of birdsong, to disturb your inner explorations. Crafted in colours of the Earth and in harmony with the land that nurtures her, Govardhan Ecovillage is designed for holistic and transformational experiences; a space where the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda and Yoga embrace you to rejuvenate body and spirit.
Govardhan Ayurveda employs the 3000-year old authentic ayurvedic practices to find the perfect balance between body, mind and spirit with the five elements - space, wind, fire, water and earth - that forms our universe. Our proactive approach promotes living a healthy lifestyle rooted in nature over the reactive method of fighting a disease.
At Govardhan School of Yoga, we help you cultivate the ancient discipline of yogic practices to recharge yourself by enhancing clarity of thought. Our systematic courses and qualified trainers delve deep into this ancient traditional science to embark upon a journey of inner awakening and transformation based on the teachings of the Bhagavad Gita.
Every aspect of your mind, body and soul achieves a heightened sense of balance. We offer comprehensive programmes which include, short duration courses as well as Certified Teacher Training Course, which focus on yoga's therapeutic process with the objective of achieving a particular physiological, psychological or spiritual goal.
At Govardhan Ecovillage we strongly believe in taking responsibility for the environment and its people. This belief stems from the Vedas, the ancient scriptures of India, which describe how our planet is perfectly created to meet the needs of all its denizens if they live in a spirit of cooperation and interdependence.
