POPUP ASHRAM brings people together for Inspiration. Heart. Love. Healing. Health. Joy. Fulfillment.Transformation. Founder Michael Liss explains "PopUp Ashram began as a unique collaboration with Design Hotels ™ to create inspiring & transformational experiences for people who are drawn to yoga or are simply asking the larger questions about life, but haven't figured out exactly where to turn, what to try, or found a practice that speaks to them. PopUp Ashram acts like a wading pool where you can experience many traditions without having to dive into the deep end. What better place to be truly open to new experiences and ideas than on vacation at a beautiful hotel."
The first PopUp Ashram was last year in Tulum, Mexico, a “Yoga & Transformation Experience” at Papaya Playa – a Design Hotels Project that consisted of 85 raw-luxe cabanas cocooned by the jungle on a pristine stretch of the Caribbean coast. This year the pop-up Ashram will take place in Bali and Italy, check out the website for information.
