Hello lovely people

Can anyone talk to me about their ashram experiences? best places to go? Will do my best to give you as much info as posible so you can give best answer. All advice and answers are greatly appreciated!
First a bit of background:
Male 22
Travelling alone November 7th-December 20th 2016
Undecided itinirary
Yoga level: Intermediate

1: I have a 6 week trip booked from november 7th-Decemebr 20th arriving in Delhi. AS part of my trip, I want to stay in an ashram for a while, practsing asanas/vinyasas and i want to experience some selffless servicing.

I am happy with a moderate intensity daily program as I have completed vippasanna 10 day course, but would like some free time in the afternoon for example, to explore etc.

I realise my idea of yoga is very westernized and I'm not so keen on dietys and dogmas. Is this just part of the yoga experience in India?

2: Are westernised retreats worth it? Im looking for an experience and to practise with a sense of purpose to myself and others, so when i see expensive luxury retreats Im put off.

3: are there some types of ashram I shoudl stay away from?

Thankyou and all the best
