The day is spent following an alternation of prayer and work, similarly to the Catholic Western monasticism.

5How long do yoga courses last? (i.e. 3 years, 5 years...)
Our Yoga courses do not have an end. According to the Indian tradition, we believe that the process of learning -especially of disciplines like yoga- is neverending. Instead, it is a constant journey that accompanies us throughout life.
