I returned to the yoga farm after 3 years and it was better then before. The vegetarian meals have expanded to include some Mexican items as well as Asian cuisine. The weather was warm so I spent most afternoons reading and swimming in the pond. The llamas and goats kept me company. I shared a dorm cabin with some lovely... More

I arrived with previous experience in other similar spiritual communities (one Hindu, one Buddhist) and have a casual eclectic Buddhist-y practice. I attended a 5-day beginner's class and a 2-day stress and relaxation workshop. This is NOT a vacation. This is hard WORK and so worth it. You are expected to follow their schedule. Wake up at 5:30am for 6:00am... More

Well, we are still here, but we've been here a number of days now, so I feel qualified to leave a review. So I'll leave a pros and cons style review: Cons: some of the staff have been downright rude. When I say some, I mean only a few, but the things they've done have made me and several others... More

We attended the yoga farm on a Groupon weekend for stress relief. The facility is lovely, tranquil and very clean. The staff is friendly, accessible and helpful. Sine it was a Groupon deal, we were in a cabin for 4, which is a bit risky since it's tight quarters. Toilets and shower are a walk away. If you choose to... More

I have been to Sivananda Yoga farm, often on a personal trip, this last time I was there to attend and speak at a Jyotish conference. As always it is a greatly uplifting experience. It is set up like an Indian ashram, with yoga, spiritual discourses and Vedic knowledge. Set in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, the visit... More

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.

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
