Take this opportunity to experience yoga and work in a truly transformative way! The One Month (OM) Program is for anyone interested in living in a spiritual community to explore work, develop self-knowledge and gain skills.

Through Karma Yoga I have found a new way of learning and working. It’s not about recognition; it’s about offering my work based on what I can do and what I know, within an environment of abundance and support. Ametisse Gover-Chamlou

Special Offer: The One Month Program is free of charge May-October 2018! Shared accommodation, meals and workshops included.

This live-and-work program focuses on Karma Yoga —the yoga of action and selfless service—and also introduces participants to Mantra, Hatha, Dreams and Kundalini Yoga — tools that can help expand awareness. Yasodhara Ashram is an intergenerational community where people of all ages — from youth to elders and everyone in between — work together. This program is run jointly with the Young Adult Program. Young Adults (18-30) are offered a reduced fee structure and Elders (60 and over) can choose to work six-hours instead of eight. The program helps you deepen self-knowledge, integrate as a valued working member of the community and take away a life-changing experience.

Each day:

  • starts with a one-hour Hatha Yoga class
  • ends with Satsang, a community gathering of devotion/meditation.

Week 1 includes:

  • orientation
  • training & work in different areas
  • workshops introducing practices and self-development processes
  • reflection day

Weeks 2-4:

  • 5.5 days of full-time Karma Yoga (working in different areas)
  • daily reflection breaks including writing/sharing in small groups
  • weekly evening class
  • weekly half-day workshop
  • weekly reflection day
  • final week includes review and planning as well as exit interviews

Amenities:

  • library; bookstore; meditation rooms; beach and forest walks

Participants are also welcome to attend lunch-hour activities (such as sacred dance/music or learning sessions on various topics), as well as special events. Each participant is assigned an Ashram contact person to help with ongoing questions.

Cost: *Free of Charge May-October 2018! Shared accommodation, meals and workshops included. Regular cost: Adults $825; Elders (60+) $825 (six hour work day option available); Deposit $100 when you are accepted into the program. Bursary Applications are available for Elders on fixed income.

What OM Program Participants are saying:

“The Karma Yoga program is well organized. I love the sharing circles because everyone is an oracle. Our group came together rapidly, which is a reflection of the person holding the space. The honesty was there; there were always beautiful, wise sharings.” Cat Gibbs
