Take this opportunity to experience yoga and work in a truly transformative way! The Young Adult Program is for people 18-30 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 Young Adult Program is free of charge May-December 2018! Shared accommodation, meals and workshops included. For 2019, the program is Pay What You Can.

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 One Month (OM) Program. 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.

What Young Adult Program Participants are saying:

“It’s a unique experience at the Ashram. I’m surrounded by people who offer support with such sincerity. I get to participate in fantastic weekly workshops. Last year, I also took a course with other guests and I was just glowing afterwards. The life-long gifts I receive here are amazing.” Molly Askey-Goldsbury
