We went to Yogaville for a workshop which was worth the expense, and the surrounding nature is serene, but I found the dormitory accommodations to be poorly maintained for the price charged. Worn paint and carpet, poor lighting, old pillows, outdated bathrooms and thin walls being among the issues. The food choices were more limited than the those offered at... More

This is a must visit serene place. The Ashram, the LOTUS temple and there's another main temple of Nataraj. My friend drove me around the place. First, I did not expect what was coming up when we were trying to go up and then suddenly the LOTUS shrine throws up.

I stayed in yogaville for 1 week, and completed 2 different programs. 1 program: Dao Flow Yoga, and a second about building your Sadhana meditation and yoga practice. I stayed in a tent site. Every tent site has a wooden deck platform, and is 20-50 feet away from another tent site. The bath house is the nicest camping bathhouse I've... More

Know first of all that this ashram is a spiritual community, not a yoga school. Yes, you can take yoga and meditation classes (beginners and more advanced), and the three teachers I had during the weekend were all great. But the 200 or so people who live at Yogaville are devoted followers of the late Sri Swami Satchidananda. You will... More

I was excited to check this place out. I am a long time yoga student and meditator. The place has so many rules it is hard to socialize with others and find a place of comfort. The private rooms are somewhat comfortable. The mosquitos and spiders in the rooms were alarming. and the bathrooms could use an upgrade or remodel.

I went to Yogaville with a coupon for Welcome Weekend and for the wrong reasons but left peaceful and happy. I went for yoga but there were not many classes and very little instruction, even in the beginner's class. By Sunday my back and neck hurt from improper poses. However I did my own practice in my very nice plain... More

A friend and I just returned from the "welcome weekend" program. What a great mini- escape! We had dorm accommodations, which were 3 bunk beds in a huge room. Dorm style and private bathrooms were available on the women only floor. No elevator here! So, don't bring really heavy bags. No shoes inside any of the buildings. So, it is... More

My wife and I purchased a "welcome" weekend package and checked in on Friday afternoon. The greeting was warm and welcome and we made our way to the modest accommodations. The staff, setting, yoga and meditation were all very good. This is a place for restoration not papering. The meals are wholesome yet basic and veggie. The environment is peaceful... More

A friend and I went here for a couple of days through the Travelzoo deal. I've been doing yoga for years and she just needed a break from reality. The accommodations were simple and very clean. We stayed in a private room with 2 twin beds and had our own bathroom. I feel like this was worth it for privacy.... More
