It is not a easy task to live a truthful life - which they teaching Ashiyana.

    The Concept of Yoga

    Yoga in Ashiyana begins with Satsanga. Including this Satsanga is the Satyananda - a meeting with oneself to find out the truth of happiness lying within oneself. Satyananda is a gift which brings out the deepest stimuli from inside - the path towards happiness begins from here. There are a few steps one has to follow once he is in Ashiyana.
