A Different Way of Being
Magic in the making...
The Ahimsa Yoga Ashram1 sits nestled in a beautiful 12 acre piece of jungle, river and waterfall land in the Mountains outside of San Rafael del Sur, central western Nicaragua.
It is a magical quiet retreat away from the noise of towns and cars, we offer uniquely inspiring Yoga programs, powerful immersions and Yoga Teacher Trainings for those students who REALLY wish to learn Yoga.
At the Ashram I crated my ideal world. A world of beautiful conscious people who want to learn, and who are open and excited to submerge themselves into the vast unknown world of Yoga.
A yoga behind the scenes, a Yoga that is never taught in the studio. A yoga that will change your way of looking at the world, yourself, your relations, your very existence. A yoga that will OPEN your body, put a little bit of MAGIC into your life and a SMILE onto your face.
Everything about the Ashram is different to your usual Yoga school. We are not just a school. The Ashram is a tiny intentional, conscious, transient Yogic community, created with every retreat.
Here I realized my vision to share my sacred life-principles, vast knowledge, deep life long experience and fascinating fun projects and activities, with like-minded people, while living in a loving and inspiring group environment.
We learn, laugh, share, cook and so much more.
Every second of my life, I live and breathe what I teach. Nothing I teach are just stories, what I just read somewhere, or just heard from somebody else. Everything I learned, I practiced extensively, experimented with, questioned, changed and applied to my every day life. By coming here and sharing our space, I invite you to do the same.
Our Educational program was designed to reflect this. It’s a wonderful mixture of deeply profound, life changing teachings, rooted in Yogic and other ancient traditions, balanced with a variety of many fun and enjoyable workshops and activities.
You don't come here to a fancy resort, but to a school to learn and share our simple Yogic life style. Close to nature and full of magic.
I don’t just teach you a yoga class, I teach YOGA. I teach what you always wanted to learn in a Yoga class and never did!
We have classes, workshops, lectures, demonstrations, Question and Answer time, and lots and lots of personal attention for each student.
I have worked with complete beginners, stiff people, old and young, people with injuries and scoliosis, as well as established Yoga teachers; each leaves the Ashram astonished and surprised that this information is not more widely available. It’s so simple, yet life and yoga practice changing for everyone. It’s like a wonderful magic tool that has just been rediscovered!
