During the Yogaville welcome weekend, visitors spend two days taking a break from their everyday lives to engross themselves in the daily practices of the Satchidananda Ashram, which include meditation, yoga, rest, and relaxation. Along with three daily vegetarian meals and time to explore the ashram’s grounds, hiking trails, and interfaith shrine, the weekend includes several instructions on meditation and yoga classes, culminating in a Sunday-morning class on Integral Yoga, which teaches yoga's philosophy as well as how to apply the practice in daily life, such as handling everyday stressors.

Yogaville

On August 15, 1969, Sri Swami Satchidananda spoke at the opening ceremony of the Woodstock music festival, calling music “the celestial sound that controls the whole universe.” Devoting his life to the pursuit of unity, he founded Satchidananda Ashram - Yogaville, located on the banks of the James River with a distant view of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Encompassing more than 600 acres of wooded landscape, the community provides a retreat for practitioners of varied skill levels who join one another to relax and practice the tenets of Integral Yoga, a synthesis of six branches of yoga developed by Sri Swami Satchidananda. At the center, the Satchidananda Ashram houses five sacred sites, including the Light of Truth Universal Shrine, or LOTUS, in which altars for every major religion let visitors of all faiths discover their personal enlightenment. Committed to the harmonious teachings of Sri Swami Satchidananda, the ashram’s instructors carry on the founder’s legacy by leading everything from workshops to multiple-day retreats.

In a Nutshell

Staying in a dorm-style room or private guesthouse, immerse yourself in the teachings of the guru who spoke at Woodstock’s opening ceremony
