Surrounded by majestic mountains, soothed by the stunning lake and nourished by the forests and gardens, Yasodhara Ashram is the perfect place to retreat.

“The time I spent at the Ashram has deepened my connection to my higher Self and awakened a compassion for others. I have come away with many insights and clearer vision for the direction I am heading in my life. The beach, the mossy green forest, the consistent light and playful wildlife has inspired me greatly. The wisdom and grace of the devotees and teachers was a great thing to immerse in for a weekend.”

Please note that while we will make your stay as comfortable as possible, Yasodhara Ashram is not a hotel or spa. Be aware that you are living in a spiritual community. Our retreats are meant for spiritual renewal.

Courses

Yasodhara yoga courses have been designed to emphasize the yogic tradition of self-discovery through reflection on the spiritual in everyday life.

Swami Radha believed that yoga is a path of liberation open to everyone. Her teachings, which are the basis of all of our courses, support students in building a foundation of character, courage and awareness – the inner work necessary on the path of yoga.

View our Courses

Ranging from two days to our popular three-month Yoga Development Course, our courses give students techniques and practices to support emotional, psychological and spiritual development. By combining yoga practices with personal development techniques Yasodhara offers a unique set of teachings tailored to the Western student of yoga.

All courses include a daily early morning Hatha or Hidden Language Yoga class, morning and afternoon workshops, group work and time for personal reflection. Course participants are also invited to participate in Karma Yoga with our community and to attend satsang each evening.
