Yoga in Auroville, India

Away from the bustling city, the quaint township of Auroville paints a pretty picture. This experimental precinct founded by Mirra Alfassa, a French Spiritual Guru and disciple of Sri Aurobindo, welcomes one and all with open arms regardless of caste, creed, class, or religion. It is a place where the message of unity, peace, and harmony, even today, is sure to change your outlook in life.

Auroville is also known for its unique architecture and sustainable methods, implemented to nurture nature. The 3000+ resident community is self-sustainable, self-sufficient, and believes in exploring, learning, and experimenting.

While the place is gaining popularity, the community living here doesn’t want attention. They wish to continue living this unique, open-minded way of life, a free world they have created for themselves without interference from the outside world.
