I am a regular attendee of The Ashram and know that every week i spend there just makes me a better and happier being. Better for my world at home, and better for my soul. The Ashram is a magical spot, spiritually rich and mentally and physically challenging. After a week the excess we all carry around is shed, and... More

A week ago, I was mid way through the most mentally and physically challenging journey of my life. The Ashram was incredible. Massage, Watsu, 2 yoga classes, a mean game of volleyball, etc. are just a part of the experience. Comraderie, new friendships, internet detox were beneifits of hiking, mainly uphill, through the beautiful southern California mountains. The staff make... More

As I read the reviews below I can't help but notice that everyone can't help but use the words magic and magical when describing The Ashram. That's because basically, that's exactly what it is. An almost indescribable magical experience. As I write this I am getting ready to return for my second time this year, after just having been there... More

The Ashram is one of the most magical places on earth. I have traveled all over the world and stayed in amazing places, but this is indeed in a category of its own. It is truly a place where you can reconnect with yourself and connect with the things that matter most to be strong mentally and physically. It's easy... More

The Ashram is an indescribably magical place. To describe it as a "beautiful, healing, loving, physically, emotionally and spiritually rejuvenating sanctuary" does not begin to do it justice. The wonderful and supportive staff, positive energy, gorgeous hikes, restorative and inspiring and soothing yoga classes, wonderful pool classes and always fun and spirited pool volleyball games, weights and barre classes, amazingly...

I have been visiting the Ashram for years and will always return for my yearly retreat. The staff and guides are wonderful. The massages are top notch and the yoga set in a beautiful yoga dome is fabulous. I do not believe the prior reviewer has ever been. The food is simple organic and primarily vegan. You are fed more... More

Being a repeat customer and huge fan of The Ashram, I feel the need to correct the numerous fallacies in the "etherbunny's" review and provide an accurate picture. Firstly, the aforementioned dance teacher has not worked at The Ashram for many years. In fact, I doubt Lassie (the dance teacher) was even still alive when etherbunny claims to have experienced...

The morning yoga session is led by someone who has no concern for what is reasonable for inexperienced persons to do. You might be standing on your head, or back up on your neck with your legs in the air. This place is dangerous to your health and safety. You are dragged out for five-hour hikes up and down dusty...

As the director of The Ashram I am very sorry that you did not enjoy your week with us. We talk to each potential guest by the time of booking to ensure that our program is the experience they are looking for. Some aspects of our program were changed many years ago. The program is quite different from the way... More
