Yasodhara Ashram has been following the news updates in BC and globally, and we have made the difficult but essential decision to close the Ashram to day visitors, retreat guests and new karma yogis until further notice. Given the dynamic nature of this situation, we will let you know when we will re-open.

  • We are closed to day visitors touring the Ashram, the Temple of Light or visiting the Gift Store.
  • Programs scheduled until July 31 are cancelled.
  • We are also closed for drop-in guests for lunch, dinner and satsangs.

Physical distancing, sanitizing measures, hand-washing reminders and awareness of supply usage continue to be emphasized for those who are currently in residence.

The message right now is clear: stay close to home if you can for the greater good of all. Let’s do our part in flattening the curve of the spread of the virus. Now is not the time to travel or to gather together physically.

But we can gather together spiritually from wherever we are—using the yogic practices of mantra, Light and visualization. Let’s stay calm, act wisely and care for each other. Let’s wash our hands thoroughly and not touch our face—a great practice of awareness.

The pandemic is so revealing of our interdependence, highlighting that we each make a difference and can affect many others. At the Ashram we will be sending out love and Light from the Temple of Light each evening at 7:30 PST. Please let us know if you or someone you know would like to be on our prayer list. Online options are coming. Stay tuned!

All in-person Teacher on Tour events and Yasodhara Yoga offerings by our certified teachers around the world are cancelled. Check for Online options in your area here.

Life is full. Let’s use this time to slow down and appreciate it. Let’s see what Divine Mother has in mind.

We offer the gift of inspiration from a 2001 talk with
Swami Radhananda: Challenge and Change - so relevant for today.


We will continue to update frequently to determine the most healthful and beneficial course of action as things develop. We will continue our generous refund policy of crediting your deposit to a future retreat in the event of cancellations, or we can fully refund your deposit. We invite you to speak with our Registration staff with any inquiries.
