Yoga Day out at Sri Aurobindo Ashram

Namaste Everyone, Om Namah Sivaya
So here is our next visit to Sri Aurobindo Ashram: Thankot.  Escape the city for a full day of yoga activities outlined as below and relax in the green environment of the Ashram.  The Ashram is home to about 200 children and adults who live there in a peaceful sanctuary, where they can learn and grow without the worries of life that they would have normally have faced.  The children would have had to have lived in very difficult situations if they had not been taken in, so come and meet them and their beautiful smiles!
