Three days Yoga excursion near Lonavala, India

Updated: Jul 25, 2018

Situated between Mumbai and Pune, in India’s #KolwanVillage, #ChinmayaVibhooti is an expression of gratitude concretised in the form of a centre that spans 65 acres of serene, pictorial landscape surrounded by the Sahyadri Mountains.

As part of my yoga instructor course offered by Svyasa I got the opportunity to witness the breathtaking views and experience the spirituality of this pictorial place.

Yoga in the morning at Chinmaya Vibhooti

My day started with the morning #Yoga session at the #hilltop, next to the temple at Chinmaya Vibhooti.

Very simple , non-spicy Vegetarian meal - #Sattvicdiet in the canteen.

It was amazing experience to do #yoga at hilltop every morning, eat non-spicy vegetarian food, do activities all day and explore the bookstore, museum and other things that Chinmaya Vibhooti offers.

This place is magical. It brings a calmness into your mind and body. Suddenly everything starts feeling so peaceful in and around you! When you are near Mumbai I will definitely recommend this place.

Absorb the teachings of Vedanta, until they become the very essence of your spiritual existence. Live every world conscientiously. You change! and the world around you will change. - Swami Chinmayananda.

This place also houses #ChinmayaNaadaBindu the school of Indian Classical Dance and Music.

You can hear students playing flute, Tabla etc. Students that have come for camping perform various activities throughout the day. Being surrounded by nature, no access to television and the spiritual surroundings it is a perfect hideout from busy city life. I think it is very good for an excursion, especially from October to March when it is misty and full of greenery.

The place can be booked for #Camping, #outing, #seminars, conventions or cultural discourses.
