About This Center

Pura Veda is a small center created to offer the space and support for personal and small group retreats. Simple, truthful living surrounded by nature sets the stage for your journey.

Pura Veda uses the ancient Gurukula model, whereby students (shishya) live near or with the teacher (guru). Thereby, learning through living. You can expect to learn the philosophies of Yoga, Ayurveda, and Pranayama (breath work) as you experience their practical application in daily life.
