I recently had an opportunity to travel to Vadodara and teach a corporate APEX program at the Art of Living’s scenic, serene and beautiful ashram, situated on the banks of river Mahi at Ankalawadi village, Vasad, 22 kms from Vadodara.
This place is a delight for bird watchers – in the few hours I was out of the meditation hall, I could spot a variety of birds from the now very uncommon sparrows to robins, babblers, parakeets, Barbets, Wagtails, Bulbuls, Kingfishers and not to mention the peahen and peacocks.

If you are in and around Vadodara, do spend a couple of days at the Ashram recharging and rejuvenating yourself. And if you are from the corporate world, here is a place that you can probably take your team out and do some team building sessions as well.
