About Yoga Ayur Meditation
Yoga Ayur Meditation is the brainchild of three Indian teachers from Kerala, who have come together to share their traditional knowledge of yoga, Ayurveda and meditation with the coming generations of humankind. As it is yoga, Ayurveda & meditation are powerful tools to build healthy physique and mind, and are essential in building a good society, which in turn will help to create peace around our space.
In collaboration with Luang Prabang Yoga and the crew of the Waterfall Sanctuary, Yoga Ayur Meditation will offer the first 200-hour yoga teacher training to be held in Laos. The training will be held on sacred land, which has been cared for by local villagers as well as volunteers from around the world. The training will offer a holistic approach to yoga that aims to create safe and responsible teachers with a strong understanding of all the facets of yoga, as well as practitioners with a dedication towards improving their quality of life and the world around them through the practice of yoga.
Students will be challenged through daily courses and workshops, but will be nurtured by the energy of the land, simple and delicious vegetarian food cooked by the Waterfall Sanctuary’s outstanding chefs, a private beach and sauna facilities.

"Baburaj initially came to Luang Prabang to lead weekend workshops covering yoga, meditation and mantras. It's immediately clear upon meeting him that he's just a simple, honest human being. As a teacher, he has the ability to read his students and deliver a class that speaks to their strengths and their vulnerabilities. He is supportive and gentle as he is challenging and stern. But overall, he makes you want to be the best version of yourself. The world can benefit from more teachers like Baburaj," - Julie (Luang Prabang Yoga teacher)
