Yasodhara Ashram

Retreat to the wilds of British Columbia to the ashram community founded in 1963 by Swami Sivananda Radha. With an emphasis on yoga as more than mere physical exercise, Yasodhara prides itself on ensuring guests are not distracted, but remain focused on thinking, walking, reading and breathing. Guests are expected to offer two hours of Karma Yoga — or selfless service — to the surrounding community. Jobs include harvesting fresh fruit and vegetables, sweeping the temple or helping in the kitchen. Choose from a variety of yoga practices: Hatha yoga, mantra yoga, dream yoga and the Divine Light Invocation. This is the place to come if you want to get away from it all but connect with other likeminded souls.
