What Are The Costs

We make conscious decisions in creating retreats that are enriching and educational but also affordable. With your stay, you will have comfortable, clean surroundings to rest, three incredibly prepared meals a day (many preserves coming from our organic garden and produce that is locally sourced), the benefits of our long-standing teachings, the support and engagement of our community, and the free beauty from Gaia herself – we are gifted with the most breathtaking vistas here in the Kootenays. All this starting at $200/day!

See tabs below for accommodation and extra stay pricing. (See our Cancellation Policy)

Additional stays can be arranged before or after your Yoga Journey. If you are interested in exploring this possibility, please let us know when you complete the registration form.

Reconciliation Fund
Your stay will include a $25 contribution (added to your invoice) toward The Reconciliation Fund initiated January 1, 2022. The collected money will be donated to a First Nations non-profit organization. These contributions, together with offerings from Ashram residents, will be given with the sincere intention to help right past injustices. All who visit or live at Yasodhara Ashram are on the beautiful but unceded territory of First Nations peoples, and we want to take meaningful action and give something back for this privilege.

Indigenous Bursary Program
The bursaries (for three different programs) are open to all First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples, with a special invitation to the Ktunaxa and Sinixt peoples on whose unceded territory the Ashram is located. To apply, please fill out this form: Bursary Application or for more information, please contact us here.
