What is difference between following a course at a hotel and studying at a yoga ashram?

When you study at a yoga course organized at a hotel or resort you don’t get to experience the real yogic lifestylewhich you get at an ashram or a residential yoga school. Also, the energy at a hotel is very different from the energy at a yoga ashram. The ashram experience enriches your mind and body and makes you stronger and calmer by bringing you back to the basics and keeping the distractions away.
