Karma Yoga Residential Stays
Our door is open to welcome you as part of our intergenerational community! We offer many options for stays, including a step-by-step process called Pathways that encourages longer-term stays – with the long-lasting benefit to participants of deepening your experience of the yogic teachings and developing skills that are transferable to work outside the Ashram.
KARMA YOGA PATHWAYS

“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
Through my experience I gained confidence, leadership, intuition, more personal awareness. Leading teams taught me valuable people skills. And looking after the tomatoes – loving and nurturing them – reinforced strengths in me that I need to share.” Kyle Atkinson
