We welcome you to experience the Ashram and be in the community in safe, relaxing ways.
Before your arrival as an incoming guest or karma yogis, make sure that you are symptom-free and in good health. On your arrival day, you can take your own rapid test prior to arriving at the Ashram. If you do not have tests, we will provide one as soon as you arrive, outside our main building Mandala House.
Masking indoors is optional at the Ashram. We have made changes to our protocols to more closely reflect the BC Provincial Health Officer's current position. This gives each individual the responsibility for your own health and safety, as well as considering the health and safety of the community.


  • Providing daily hand washing reminders to our karma yogis, residents, staff and guests to emphasize the importance of hand washing before each meal and regularly throughout the day.
  • Providing alcohol-based hand sanitizer at our Welcome Centre and other key locations.
  • Posting hygiene tips in all bathrooms, offering advice on hand washing.
  • Regular sanitation with greater than 60% alcohol antiviral cleaners of public doorknobs, light switches, and other commonly-touched surfaces.

We welcome registered guests and karma yogis. See the appropriate webpages.
We also offer weekly Saturday 2 pm tours (approximately 1.5 hours) mid-May to mid-October LINK https://www.yasodhara.org/guided-tours/
