Yasodhara Ashram is a yoga retreat and study centre in Kootenay Bay, British Columbia. Established over 50 years ago, Yasodhara Ashram is an enduring and vibrant spiritual community. Set in the beautiful mountains of southeastern British Columbia, we invite people of all ages and backgrounds to pursue their self-development and discover the promise of yoga.
We offer a wide range of yoga programs year round – from a three-month intensive, to private retreats, teacher certifications and introductions to yoga. Our popular Service and Study programs are for those interested in learning about Karma Yoga, or the yoga of selfless service, our main spiritual practice.
Your stay includes a morning Hatha Yoga class, nourishing organic meals, and an evening devotional service (satsang).
