A quiet yoga and meditation centre, tucked away in the hills of the Nilgiris, Ritambhara allows you to experience a place of calm anchored deep within yourself.
In a world increasingly characterised by chaotic cities and all the distractions therein, this sense of calm can sometimes feel inaccessible. We have lost the ability to experience true stillness, to reflect upon one’s self, to be inspired by the intelligence and creativity that abound in Nature.
As you walk among the trees, engage in the teachings of Yoga and Inner Work, encounter the local wildlife, and expand within the majesty of the Nilgiris, our hope is that you will rediscover that most precious, innocent, and joyful part of yourself.
Come to Ritambhara and enter into contemplative conversations.
Residing at Ritambhara
Staying at Ritambhara is an experience that will open your eyes and calm your mind.
Surrounded by ancient Shola forests containing an incredible diversity of plant and animal life, we are conscious of our environmental impact on the land, and hope you will be too. Visitors are encouraged to generate minimal waste, carry organic toiletries, and use water sparingly in order to protect this sacred space.
In this initial phase of Ritambhara, a visitor can avail of simple, yet comfortable accommodation, work in tandem with others in our large training hall, and enjoy wholesome vegetarian meals in the dining hall. Soon, we hope to have a craft centre and a library as well. All of this, including walkways and open spaces, is surrounded by a solar fence to prevent the local wildlife from joining in.
Begin each day bathed in light, waking up to Nature’s alarm clock: birdsong.
Ritambhara Ashram offers 8 rooms, on a twin sharing basis, with attached toilets. We also have 8 bamboo huts available for single occupancy, with shared toilets.
Our spacious dining hall seats approximately 30 people, and looks out onto the valley.
The training hall provides a safe and serene environment in which participants can engage in Yoga and Inner Work.
