What To Bring
Our mountain climate requires a variety of clothing: summer days can be hot and the evenings cool. Winters bring lots of snow. We often have rain.
- Loose fitting, modest clothing for Hatha yoga & Karma yoga
- Outdoor work clothes
- Indoor footwear and/or closed shoes for dish duty in the kitchen
- Warm boots with good traction for winter
- Modest bathing suit in the summer.

- Food needed for special diets
- Current medications and supplements (pain relief, vitamins, etc)
- Personal supplies such as toiletries (shampoo, conditions, soap, etc) and laundry soap; laundry charges are $2/wash, $1/dryer. In consideration of others, we ask that any personal care products you bring are fragrance-free.
You may also want to bring:

If you need to borrow some clothing, especially for outdoor work, visit the Ashram Boutique! Rain gear, work clothes, sun hats and other recycled clothing are available for your use.
Personal supplies that may be needed can also be purchased at our bookstore or ordered from town and picked up on our weekly town run to Nelson ($5 courier fee charged).
