During the retreat, you will stay at Oasis Guesthouse in Upper Bhagsu, about two and a half kilometers away from McLeod Ganj town. Its geographical location makes it comfortably away from main markets and distractions, which results in a calm, quiet, and contemplative environment for yoga and meditation practices. As the area around the center cannot be reached by motor vehicles, one can enjoy a true serenity and the peaceful atmosphere of the Himalayas.

While the geographical location of this yoga center provides a calm and quiet atmosphere, the topography of the area naturally brings a meditative disposition, creating an experience of peacefully merging with nature. One can feel that he or she is relaxing in the lap of nature. Located on a flank full of green palm trees and boasting a vibe of a beautiful valley and chirps and tweets of birds, the center truly provides a conducive and spiritual environment for yoga and meditation practices.

The Oasis Guesthouse has 12 nice deluxe rooms for yoga students only. Each room has a Western-style toilet with a 24-hour hot shower, a safe locker, a wooden wardrobe, a big double bed, blanket, a mosquito net, a table, two chairs, and free Wi-Fi. These rooms have enough space for two people.

Location

This retreat will be held in Dharamsala, close to the Himalayas. The Himalayas, meaning the abode of snow in Sanskrit, are a range of mountains with mighty snow peaks, forming the northern border of the Indian subcontinent. The Himalayas have been a great inspiration for spiritual practitioners, yogis, saints, as well as healers. Experienced by many practitioners and yogis as a very powerful energy center on the Earth, these sacred mountains have been inspiring many people. Dharmashala is located in the North Indian state of Himachal Pradesh.

Nestled below the mighty snow-clad peaks of the beautiful Himalayan Dhauladhar mountain range, it is a wonderful location with an abundance of natural beauty and spiritual diversity. Dharmashala is the spiritual headquarters of Buddhists all over the world. It is the home of Dalai Lama and the center of the Tibetan exile. Dalai Lama has been living here along with his followers since 1959. His presence and the Tibetan population have made Dharamshala a popular destination for Indian and foreign tourists, including students studying Tibetan culture.

Dharamsala and McLeod Ganj are twin towns located by the Himalayan mountain range. Dharamsala is mainly populated by locals. McLeod Ganj is the abode of Dalai Lama. Many Tibetans have found their permanent settlements in this town and are leading peaceful life. Bhagsunag and Dharmakot are twin beautiful hamlets located two kilometers away from McLeod Ganj. These two villages are relatively calm and quiet and give a conducive atmosphere for yoga and meditation practices. Hence, many yoga and meditation learners chose to come here for their training.
