About Us

Kodaikanal Yoga CenterMeditative Art School applies the process of creating, as a spiritual practice. Coming from the background of both the art field and the spiritual world, we combine the two together. In this way spiritual seekers can support their love and need to create and vice-versa artists can utilize their creativity to grow spiritually. We have founded Meditative Art School – to teach Meditative Art in a modern way, and bring together traditional forms of meditative arts from around the globe. We are also yoga and meditation practitioners, as well as qualified and experienced teachers.
