It is the mission of HYA to embody as many facets of enlightened living as possible, including becoming a self-sufficient community with environmentally sustainable systems. Our main projects are developing agricultural systems and building projects. We do not require experience of any kind, only a dedication to learn and be of service to others!

With the limited words of English, I don't believe there are words to describe the level of self improvement, sense of direction, joy, Love, discipline, meaningful connection to humans and nature alike, broader sense of awareness within and without. This Ashram will bring a sense of family connection to those seeking. Those who aren't will slowly be reminded due to their kindness, compassion, willingness to give, support and nurture. Before, I thought I knew everything about spirituality, and coming here I realize I didn't even scrape the surface. With tools given, I can face fear head on.

I had the most amazing experience here! The people are so welcoming and genuine. I made wonderful friends, learned new skills, and made so many good memories! This is the best place to grow if you're looking to be around people who offer support and fun while you're on your spiritual journey!

I stayed here Back in August and it was so amazing. It was definitely a brand new experience for me in the best way possible. Everyone was so nice and welcoming from the second I got there. I was able to overcome some of my biggest fears while being here with the help of the people here and I am still so thankful for that to this day. The work we had was so nice and you really learn to appreciate the work you do while your here. Everyday we had healthy and very delicious meals for us to eat after working and I got to learn some new things in the kitchen. I would 100% recommend it to anyone:))

I spent a little over a month here, the people and environment have aided me in my growth greatly. I've been able to take something from everyone I've met here. ( travelers and hosts ) This is a spiritual community and the more advanced students are there to make it a safe place/ fun time for you and to aid you in your own self growth. You will learn about meditation and non physical yoga. There are spiritual practices given to be done daily and they aid in self realization and help develop a stronger sense of spirituality. This experience can be much at first but there is so much to Gain.

This was one of the most heart opening experiences I've ever had! I went in with high hopes and came out with way more than that! Diksha is an AMAZING host and the whole community itself is just unbelievable. You feel like you are part of a family the moment you arrive. Everyone there is so understanding and the communication is immaculate. You are free to set the boundaries you need with no fear or judgment. Make sure you go in with an open mind and willingness to learn about their spirituality. I promise it is so worth it! I truly cannot wait to come back next summer! Thank you HYA, namaste
