I did not really know what to expect, When I signed up for a quick two day trip of the ashram. At first I didn't think I would make it even through the first day. It was all a little different from the check in to the first meal, but once I got into the swing of the place I... More

Three city dwelling carnivores took on the "Welcome Weekend" package at Yogaville.... First the checking was quick and the staff friendly and helpful. We found everyone to be quite welcoming. Second the room (private) was clean and simple with a comfortable bed. Additional bedding (pillows, blankets were in the room) There is no TV or phone...be prepared and if you... More

I took the "Welcome Weekend" package at Yogaville around the end of July. It was 170$ for 2 nights in a dormitory room with shared bath. You check in Friday and get a wristband and assigned to your room. The first class there was a Yoga Nidra class to relax you. Then a meditation class. This was followed by dinner.... More

I visited the ashram for the Welcome Weekend to take advantage of the yoga classes. Two days later, I've had six hours of Hatha yoga! There are more activities than just yoga, including meditation sessions, trail hiking, and talks on the yogic lifestyle by residents. Meals are included with your room fee and are mostly vegan and home-cooked buffet-style. The... More

Me and my friend decided to go escape the hustle and bustle of DC for a weekend of meditation and road tripped here. We are both familiar with yoga practice so we very much knew what to expect and have very open minds. We arrived late Friday night and they were very accommodating to our situation. Because our stay was... More

It is undeniable that this place holds a special and spiritual energy, but those living and working at the ashram are not the most welcoming to guests or those taking part in programs. Meditate in the lotus shrine, sneak a coffee at the Mandala Market and Cafe, and keep an open mind when it comes to practicing integral yoga.

We went for just one night and was amazed at the friendliness of the staff, cleanliness of the place, high quality of food and the wealth of activities. I really wish I had stayed longer and will go back for sure. Recommend this place to chill out or go on hiking, yoga, clean food and clean air. Great place...

I went for one-night and was amazed how full the schedule was. Went for a Welcome Visit, where I pick and chose from the daily schedule of activities. The meals were so deliciously healthy and vegan. The yoga classes and talks were uplifting and invigorating. And a nice selection of books in the bookstores on the main campus and at... More

There is a wonderful presence of peace throughout the Ashram, from the moment you set foot on the property you are surrounded by beauty. The food is prepared with love. The quiet and stillness nurture your soul.
