COVID-19 UPDATE: CLOSURE AND OPPORTUNITIES

The Ashram has made the difficult decision to remain closed through 2020. We plan to re-open for the Yoga Development Course in January 2021. Please note that the grounds and buildings, including the Temple of Light, are now closed to public access. As a residential community with an elder population, we are taking extra safety precautions while the virus is still active. READ MORE about our new online classes and a limited number of longer stays in Retreat Cabins or with Karma Yoga.
