For years, travelers seeking serenity and spiritual renewal have made their way to India's ashrams and retreat centers to learn the wisdom of ancient practices like yoga, meditation and Ayurveda healing. From by-donation yoga programs at a southern India center to luxury wellness retreats at an upscale Himalayas destination spa, these 10 retreat centers accommodate every budget and level of interest, from the yoga-curious to experienced meditation practitioners. The Art of Living International Center, a 65-acre campus located on top of the Panchagiri Hills outside Bangalore, is a popular destination for peace-seekers from abroad heading to India for the ashram experience.

An Italian villa done in the style of a Renaissance mansion lies in the heart of Los Angeles. Built for the Gausti family, the home was was completed 1913.
The Movement of Spiritual Inner Awareness, or "MSIA," was founded in California in 1968 during the rise of the West Coast New Age movement.
The movement has a number of celebrity adherents (said to include Beach Boys Carl Wilson and Arianna Huffington, though Huffington has denied it) and has been criticized as cult of personality.

Regardless of one's feelings about MSIA, the center has done well by the architecture they occupy. The gardens are modeled after classic Japanese gardens and offer several quiet areas to sit. They are currently working on some ipod programs that can be used while your meditate in the gardens or walk the labyrinth. One of the few remaining American elm trees in New York’s Tompkins Square Park was the birthplace of a new religion. The ruins of this Dutch castle sit atop a labyrinth of once-secret tunnels and passageways, dating back over 900 years.

Whether you're looking for a disciplined daily meditation routine at a spiritual center or a luxury spa with a focus on wellness and healing, the country's many retreat centers all promise visitors stress reduction, self-discovery and an escape from a busy urban lifestyle. With mountainside trails, gardens, a lake and organic farms surrounding the facility, it's the perfect place to get some peace and quiet.

Swami Anand Arun also inspired a new meditation center; Osho Samadhi Meditation Center in Los Angeles during the retreat.
In 1937, the property was bought by famed Hollywood director and choreographer, Busby Berkley.
MSIA has not only restored the villa to it's original beauty, but has added both a meditation garden and labyrinth which is regularly open to the public by appointment via their center or online. Guests (who come from all cultures and religious backgrounds) are invited to participate in voluntary service, helping with cooking, cleaning and general upkeep of the ashram. Unlike other more famous Hollywood religions, it does not ask anyone to break ties with friends or family and does not attempt to control the lives of its followers.
