Ashram Learning. Home Food. Simple Living.
Shrimath was founded in 2011 by Krishna Prakash & Smrithi Krishna who continue to practice processes & learn from living traditions (since 1990), some of which with 2500+ years history. They both hold Master's degree in Yoga as well.
Till now students from 43 countries, namely, Argentina, Australia, Austria, Brazil, Cambodia, Canada, Chile, China, Columbia, Croatia, Czechoslovakia ,Denmark, Ethiopia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Iran, Ireland, Latvia, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, Portugal, Qatar, Russia, Serbia, Singapore, Slovenia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, UK, USA & Vietnam, have studied at Shrimath.
In early 2011, we felt that time was ripe to offer Yoga & other spiritual aspects of life to learners who preferred small batch sizes with personal attention. Ashrams & Universities too offer authentic content, but their intake was high. Thus, Shrimath was born in 2011 with a clear mission to offer the experience of learning in a traditional Gurukul model where the blend of ashram learning, home food & simple living is possible.
This approach allowed the learners to transform themselves into seekers as they understood that the vagaries of life should not deter them from inching towards the ultimate goal in life i.e. Self-realization.
Another unique feature of Shrimath that help course participants is the possibility to repeat their teacher training course for free, because 'repetition is considered as reinforcement' in Indic Knowledge Systems of which Yoga is an integral part. Thus 2 seats in every batch is reserved for Shrimath alumni.
As founders with roots in living traditions, we know that unless Yoga is taken beyond classrooms, it becomes too theoretical and academic. Thus, we infused concepts like working with rural school, assisting at the farm & kitchen, contributing to the upkeep of the facility as part of the daily schedule.
In 2012, a group of entrepreneurs & professionals pursuing MBA at the Babson College (World's #1 MBA course in Entrepreneurship since 1994) were inspired by our concept - Prosperity beyond Material Wealth and presented that as one of their final year presentations. That team created all our social media handles. It is important to note that Stanford University (No:2) & MIT (No:3) courses on Entrepreneurship are ranked right behind Babson College.
In 2013, Yoga Alliance International recognized the need of teachers, coaches & trainers to know Yoga Nidra. Thus, Shrimath has the privilege of being the first Yoga School in the World to be allowed to offer certification course in Yoga Nidra.
Due to consistent reviews of participants, since 2014 we continue to receive all possible awards from international travel portal TripAdvisor - Certificate of Excellence (since 2014), Hall of Fame (2019) & Travellers' Choice (2020).
The journey continues as on 9th March 2023 we launched The Indic Foundation through which other aspects of Indic Knowledge Systems can be offered to discerning seekers. The story continues to unfold but we stop here for now... Thank you.
