Plan, peaceful, relaxing, friendly atmosphere where you can go for a day, week or month to relax, rejuvenate and detox. Modest accommodations, beautiful grounds, good food and friendly staff. Yoga classes focused on breathing; but varied between teachers (2 classes per day @ 2 hours each class).

A bit of advice for those not familiar with Sivananda yoga: come with an open mind. During my first experience with Sivananda, I was a bit overwhelmed by all the chanting and spirituality. (My yoga background up to that point had involved hip hop yoga classes in Boston, often followed by a pint.) Despite my initial skepticism, I've found that...

Zero spirituality at Sivananda Yoga Ranch The Free open house was abysmal. Lots of Sanskrit with no connective translation. The asana class was a joke but not at all funny. A beautiful room with an altar and a lovely window with glorious mountain views. However the " instructor" wouldn't allow me to face my mat in that direction . HELLO...

First, be mindful this is an Ashram not a resort. You are there to experience the yogic lifestyle they offer to include the meditation, chanting, and lessons. I took the cooking workshop with Neeti on Indian Spices. The food was wonderful and she was an excellent teacher. I checked in Friday and stayed through Sunday Morning. Saturday runs from 6AM...

I joined my yoga teacher training in June, 2015 and would definitely say that the experience has been life changing. This is definitely what I was looking for: a holistic understanding of yoga in all perspectives (asanas, anatomy, philosophy, and how to incorporate yoga to everything in life/how to live a yogic lifestyle). This place is so peaceful and food...

After reading The Autobiography of Swami Sivananda and visiting the center in NYC, I knew I had to visit the ranch. My very first visit to the ranch last weekend was more than I ever dreamed it to be. From the moment I entered the main building, I felt welcomed and safe. The staff was warm and friendly and always...

I absolutely love coming to this Ashram. It is amazing experience every time I come there. I recharge, get more focused and motivated. Staff is very welcoming and friendly, food is delicious and nature is beautiful. I look forward coming back every time.

The yoga ranch is my home away from the city. When I need some quiet time, solo time, rejuvenation, I go to the ashram. It's perfect for a day or a month or longer. It's easy to get to from NYC via bus or car and takes a few hours. The staff is always helpful answering questions on everything from...

I can't imagine better place anywhere to unwind, go inside, and feel good! All the staff are fantastic. Their organic vegetarian meals are from another dimension. The sky was blue and clear. The fresh air was beyond description. The rustic, wood-burning sauna was the cherry on the cake!

I recently spent a month at the Yoga Ranch for the Teacher Training Course. The training was excellent. It definitely strengthened my own practice of yoga and meditation, but even more, I developed a better knowledge of the Vedanta, Sanskrit, and philosophies. The facilities are not luxurious, but this actually keeps you focused on the teachings and the beautiful surroundings....
