Our ashram now provides the opportunity for students to learn Kalaripayattu while continuing their job responsibilities with the convenience of a dedicated workspace and reliable Wi-Fi access, enabling students to balance their work and learning commitments.

Indulge in Nature

Gurukulam provides the perfect environment to disconnect, slow down, and reconnect with nature to rejuvenate the body, mind, and soul. When we meditate in nature, we become more aware and alive. We no longer see nature as just an object, but as a living and breathing world of wisdom and learning that is constantly teaching us.
