Satchidananda Ashram–Yogaville

Satchidananda Ashram–Yogaville is situated in Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains alongside the beautiful James River. This community is a good fit for those committed to a healthy lifestyle based on the principles of Integral Yoga and sharing a goal of spiritual growth. Our community celebrates diversity and shares the common bond of yogic practices, meditation, healthy vegetarian food and living with compassion in a supportive community.

Yogaville has approximately 200 community members who live a peaceful life where residents share the responsibilities of daily living. With over 700 acres of woodland and a campus where buildings are designed to accommodate both short and long term residents, life is good. There are daily offerings of Hatha Yoga, meditation, kirtan and talks to enlighten your life. Shared vegetarian meals are served three times a day.

Newcomers are welcome to apply to the Living Yoga Training (LYT) program to experience the lifestyle of Yogaville. Guided by instructors who have devoted their lives to learning and imparting the wisdom of Yoga as taught by Sri Swami Satchidananda, this program can be a life-transforming experience adding significantly to one’s ability to balance life, health and happiness.

The Living Yoga Training program is health and wellness at its core. In 28 days you can learn techniques that help you reduce stress so you can better manage life’s challenges. Through community and yoga practices you will lift your spirit, renew your body and clear your mind. Each day you will have opportunities to practice alongside other seekers who desire a life that is healthy, happy and balanced in every experience.

The L.Y.T. program offers participants a safe, supportive space where you can immerse yourself in a yogic lifestyle where accomplished teachers offer classes in yoga philosophy, meditation, deep relaxation and more. Private mentoring is also available.

This program is open to everyone, although it’s a commitment requiring dedication and discipline. Those who are new to meditation or yoga practices will receive full instruction, while those with experience will have the opportunity to go deeper into their practice.

After the successful completion of the LYT program, there are several options available to be part of the Satchidananda Ashram-Yogaville community, including residential programs, employment, and more.

Take yourself away from your regular routine to find the peace that is within you.
