Shankar Prasad Foundation
Shankar Prasad is a spiritual retreat centre located near Gokarna, Karnataka, India.We offer yoga and meditation classes, run an organic farm, house a children's play school, and serve the local community however we can.
Yoga classes and meditation retreats are held by Swami Yogaratna Saraswati, an accomplished sannyasini trained at the Satyananda Bihar Yoga School with over 30 years of experience.
This gorgeous century-old heritage house is located in the village of Bankikodla, 5km from Gokarna, an ancient temple and Shiva pilgrimage town with beautiful beaches, forested hills and coastal farming.
We aim to preserve the heritage of the local area as well as to ‘give back’ to the local people, for our own spiritual growth, through seva (voluntary work to help others). We practice simple, sustainable, and eco-friendly living.
