I had the chance to spend the month of May at the ashram to do my TTC. I did my research and understood what an ashram was but I still did not know what to expect. I knew it would be far out of my comfort zone but that is exactly what I was looking for. Although there were times... More

The Siva temple The mountain shines like a lamp, a flame or a song that rises. The hill Siva vibrates in its soft green, a powerful blast door high in the sky. How not to feel joy with the first movement of the earth, which is to spring up, the darkest to the lightest, the most dense to the lighter,... More

So good! I love the Sivananda Yoga Farm. After my first visit to the farm in Dec. '14 it has changed my life. I really enjoy the pure energy that is encapsulated and the sincerity of all the staff and guests. Most people come to the yoga farm with intention. It's not a place that someone usually stumbles upon and... More

If you want to find a structured retreat away from civilization then Sivananda Yoga Farm is for you. It's about 3 hours north east of San Francisco and it's very relaxed and chill. The retreat has a set schedule from morning mediation, to yoga, to talks, to chanting. Of course all the food is locally grown, organic, and vegan and... More

If you're looking for a place to get away from everything, this is it. Yoga Farm is a rare home where you can be around good people, good food, and good living to find/remember what it's like to step off the hamster wheel. Be warned though... it's the kind of place people go for a few days and just don't... More

I've been with my family to Yoga farm (ashram) couple of times over the past few years. Truly a serene place. Its an ashram in true sense not a retreat. All volunteers are very genuine, caring, and really love their work. You've to help out with karma yoga - clean the kitchen, restrooms, etc. And believe it or not, you... More

I spent a week at the Yoga Farm January 2015 for a Meditation for Beginners workshop. While the workshop was for beginners the Farm itself I'd suggest is best enjoyed by those with prior yoga experience. The Farm is beautiful. The staff was gracious, and genuinely friendly. I learned a lot about yoga, meditation, and myself. Staying longer than a... More

Lovely place and wonderful people (teachers, volunteer staff and fellow guests), well worth a visit but please look carefully at the web site and know what you are letting yourself in for. I stayed to do the month long yoga teacher training course TTC, which was intense but very rewarding. Whatever your reason for visiting to reap the benefits be... More

This is great yoga retreat center. Includes daily yoga classes and yoga programs. Ashram serves healthy vegetarian food. Center has wonderful lake surrounded by cabins. I love to go there whenever I get chance.

The Yoga Farm is an exceptional location for teacher training. The month I spent there has had a very long lasting positive effect on my Yoga practice, and everyday life. The authentic, classical teachings include so much more than asanas. The landscape is near unbeatable, where one can observe wildlife, (LOTS of deer!), meditate, hike to outdoor temples, and to...
