ASHRAM RESIDENTIAL PROGRAM – NEW!

Adapting to the new world of the covid-19 pandemic, the Ashram is providing more long-term programs to maintain a safer environment for all. We realize that many people are working from home and can benefit from a long-term stay at the Ashram to support your practice and to immerse in the nature and the spiritual vibrations of the Ashram.
The Ashram residential program requires a minimum 1 month stay (29 nights/30 days).

Available now until the spring of 2021, the Ashram welcomes all Yoga practitioners for a spiritual retreat with ample time to work online with the available Ashram Wi-Fi or to do a personal retreat to study or write, meditate, or deepen their spiritual practice. We ask only that you honor the Ashram rules, maintain a minimum, daily yoga and meditation practice, and participate in a minimum of one hour/day of karma yoga.

The Ashram is quiet and peaceful, closed to short-term yoga vacationers due to the pandemic. We are a small group of dedicated practitioners holding the Ashram space for practice and retreat. In these times of monumental change, sadhana (spiritual practice) and reflection are great blessings to reevaluate life goals and priorities, and to explore the spiritual. Immerse yourself in the ashram environment of beautiful, wooded land in the Catskill Mountains.
