In traditional Indian culture an ashram was somewhere where a spiritual discipline was practiced and even today, all around India, from the Himalayas in the north to the tropical south, ashrams are still an important part of many communities. Taking inspiration from spiritual India, these days ashrams teaching yoga and meditation can be found all around the world and Melbourne is no exception.
