Yogaville Ashram Retreat
Thursday, May 30-Sunday, June 2, 2024

Satchidananda Ashram–Yogaville, located in Buckingham County, Virginia, is a peaceful environment for those who wish to study, practice and share the Integral Yoga teachings of Sri Swami Satchidananda.

 

We will carpool from Oxford, and spend three relaxing nights at the ashram experiencing the sacred sites, programs, classes, and the surrounding nature at Yogaville together. 

Situated on 750 acres of land, the facilities include a teaching academy, conference center, meeting and dining hall, gift shop, library,  organic farm, monastery, guest accommodations, and sacred sites for prayer and meditation. At the heart of Yogaville is the Light Of Truth Universal Shrine (LOTUS), dedicated to world peace and interfaith harmony.

Yogaville is blessed with several sacred sites where prayer and meditation sessions are regularly held. The auspicious vibrations that result from all the devotional and meditative activity fill the Ashram with healing energy, and an atmosphere of peace and harmony. This beautiful, serene environment attracts devotees, students and spiritual seekers from around the world who come to recharge and progress on their path.

Private Room & Bath: $518

Shared Dorm & Bath: $320

(Senior, military, and student discounts may apply!)

Creating a Heaven on Earth

Sri Swami Satchidananda  envisioned Yogaville as a heaven on earth. He foresaw a model community where residents and guests would have the opportunity to integrate the teachings and practices of Yoga into all aspects of their daily life. A community whose members practice non-violence in thought, word, and deed, serving and supporting one another with love and compassion. His vision has taken shape.

The goal at Satchidananda Ashram–Yogaville is "to live a life of peace and joy and to share that peace and joy with everyone we meet. We respect all faiths and prescribe to the principle that Truth is One, Paths are Many. To date, we’ve welcomed thousands of people from all over the globe and from diverse backgrounds and traditions. Visitors come to experience our interfaith shrine, the Light Of Truth Universal Shrine (LOTUS), and to participate in our many varied workshops, trainings, silent and personal retreats, and guest stays."

Satchidananda Ashram–Yogaville INC, is a 501 (c) (3), non-profit organization.
