New program offers a taste of the Yasodhara Ashram

While day visitors are welcome year round at the Ashram, this new and specially designed program provides scheduled activities for the day.

Yasodhara Ashram is celebrating its 50th anniversary year with the introduction of a new day program called “A Taste of the Ashram,” which will run the the first Saturday of each month from June to September.

While day visitors are welcome year round at the Ashram, this new and specially designed program provides scheduled activities for the day.

The program offered on June 1, July 6, August 3 and September 7 runs from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and includes a yoga class, lunch and guided tour of the grounds, including an overview of the Ashram’s environmental initiatives and gardens.

All are welcome to participate. The cost is $25 for adults or $10 for children. The Ashram is located at 527 Walker’s Landing Road about five minutes from the Kootenay Bay Ferry.

Yasodhara Ashram is a Yoga Retreat and Study Centre founded in 1963 by Swami Sivananda Radha. It remains a vibrant community welcoming people of all ages and backgrounds to discover the transformative power of yoga.

The Ashram is like a small village with 115 acres on the east-shore of Kootenay Lake in the mountains of southeastern BC. The year-round population averages 50 to 55 people, with seasonal peaks of 100 to 110.

Yasodhara Ashram is a Canadian charity and a registered educational institution. It is operated by volunteers in the tradition of charity and service embodied in its constitution.
