Created in March 2013, the Association Ram Dass Guru (ARDG) is a non-profit institution that has been established with the objective of promoting the teachings and practice of Kundalini Yoga (KY) in Portugal and to take it, through free classes, to disadvantaged groups who would not otherwise be able to access this practice. Also from the beginning, ARDG has offered scholarships for the training of Kundalini Yoga teachers, both nationally and internationally, including students from African countries. In 2015 ARDG took a huge step forward in taking responsibility for managing the Eco-Ashram in Quinta do Rajo. In this context, ARDG welcomes volunteers (sevadars) from different countries and demonstrates the viability of a yogic, sustainable and community lifestyle. ARDG provides hospitality to all who seek in this Ashram a space of welcome, renewal and discipline.
