Certificate of Excellence
The Yoga Ranch was founded in 1974 by Swami Vishnudevananda to provide a peaceful retreat structured around a full immersion into Yogic living and nurtured with the natural beauty of the lush mountains. The simple living close to nature quiets the mind and prepares it for meditation and the high thinking of the Vedanta philosophy. Asanas (yoga postures), Pranayama (breathing techniques), vegetarian meals, chanting, and working together in Karma Yoga help complete your Yoga experience. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to the propagation of classical Yoga teachings. Experience the empowerment to transform health, relationships, and attitude through practices focusing on the body, mind, and spirit. Awaken a deep inner appreciation for dharmic (sustainable) living. The Yoga Ranch invites you to come explore this adventure in healthy living.

A sanctuary of healing and spiritual growth!! The perfect place to get away breathe in the fresh Catskill mountain air and recharge in a peaceful, clean, natural environment. I came here after the death of my mother when I was broken and consumed with grief, darkness and sadness. The warmth, love, and kindness of the Karma Yogi staff along with the meditation, chanting, and yoga opened my heart and allowed the light back in. The Well-Being Center staff was absolutely wonderful. The treatments literally reconnected me to my body. Thank you so much Ishvari, Krishna Pria, Parameshwara, and Maheshwari for your skill, patience, and love. I will be forever grateful. There is delicious organic vegetarian/vegan food freshly made for every meal. The ashram has its own garden and greenhouse and is lovingly overseen by Sitaram Chaitanya. The grounds are beautiful with gorgeous flower gardens tended by Ambika and gentle hiking trails surround the property. The Ashram offers two Sivananda yoga classes and a variety of interesting workshops. The wood burning Russian sauna is very popular. (pack a bathing suit) The beautiful Satsangs start with meditation and chanting, usually followed a teaching. If you are fortunate to have Satsang with Swami Paramananda or Srinivasan, you will be inspired by their knowledge, devotion, and humor. This experience enabled me to return home and deal with the aftermath of my mother’s death in a clearer and saner manner. It is truly a spiritually charged haven.

I went by myself to visit this place for the first time. I thought that taking public transportation would be difficult. It was easy from New York city to the center. Riding the bus was comfortable and switching to the second bus was also a nice experience.Being there with nature was a relaxing time to disconnect from every body and from everything. It was a wonderful trip. I stayed a few days.The service was excellent and the food was exotic. I enjoyed all activities in the center. I felt safe being in this environment alone.

It was my first time ever at a place like this. Living in NYC and being new to they city, I found it hard to adapt or feel settled. I went there and I felt uncomfortable that there were no locks on the door. Immediately, after to speaking to Tijas, he sorted my situation and moved me. He didn't make me feel silly or out of place. He accommodated as best he could which was perfect. Paul, another member was a friendly face and a lovely honest person. Any question I had about what certain things were like the 'Satsang Chanting' he was welcoming with his information. Everyone was extremely nice. I would definitely go again. The yoga was tough but as a beginner I never felt out of place. It really changed my whole perception on vegan food, yoga and meditation. Thank you to everyone at the ranch!
