Wise Living Yoga Academy
Doi Saket, Chiang Mai Centre- Thailand
Ashram & Community Life
The Sanskrit word 'Ashram' means a ‘place’ where people meet to learn and practice spiritual disciplines, like Yoga, under a particular Teacher or Guru. It also refers to the 'community life' characteristic of such places, modeled on those traditionally set in India. An ashram would typically, but not always, be located far from human habitation, in forests or mountainous regions, amidst refreshing natural surroundings conducive to spiritual instruction and meditation.
- Routine and Centre’s facilities
The routine and facilities in our centre are set to provide the students with a suitable environment for learning and experiencing the traditional Yogic disciplines. However the energy and atmosphere depends on the personal attitude of each participant living in community. Every participant is expected to contribute to the maintenance of positivity, discipline and general cleanliness.
- Accommodation & Cleanliness
The centre’s staff/workers will do a gross cleaning and bed linen will be changed once a week, however, yourself along with your roommate, will be responsible to maintain the cleanliness of your bedroom and bathroom during the week and throughout your stay with us.
Your room, bed and personal stuff should be kept tidy and clean. Please remember you will be, mostly, sharing the room with another student, therefore, respect your roommate’s privacy and personal space.
