I had one of the most amazing experience ever !!! I was here for the weekend course 09-14-09-16, stayed in a cabin with three other gals . Cabins were clean and comfortable, very quiet and peaceful . The farm is beautiful especially the night skies , I will be back with a tent next time :) Nice hiking trails , if you're into hiking . I would often lay on the hammock over looking the beautiful pond and chill . The yoga classes were Awesome , the instructor was GREAT , she was really hands on and step by step , made sure you were comfortable if anything . The lectures were even better, the instructor was very passionate about teaching and I actually stayed awake and listen haha :) I learned so much for just a weekend , I look forward to coming back soon .... I would def. recommend this place !!!!!

What You'll Get

Yoga teaches people how to sustain poses while still breathing, a skill most yogis use to live undetected in wax museums. Trick a tourist with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $69 for admission to a weekend beginners' yoga retreat (a $160 value)
  • $149 for admission to a five-day beginners' yoga retreat (a $400 value)

Each retreat includes two daily meals and accommodations in a four-person dorm, although guests may upgrade their lodgings for an additional fee.

During the beginners' yoga intensive weekend and the beginners' yoga five-day course, instructors introduce students to traditional yoga techniques, philosophies, and breathing exercises. They also elucidate the 12 basic yoga pose types, their benefits, and the benefits of yoga over other exercises.

Each workshop starts early in the morning, when students wake up in their heated cabins overlooking the farm's tranquil pond. Twice a day, visitors sit down to a buffet-style vegetarian meal that includes organic produce from the onsite gardens. The farm’s cooks adhere to yogic and ayurvedic dietary principles by avoiding eggs, onions, and meat.

About Sivananda Ashram Yoga Farm

Founder swami Vishnudevananda created the nonprofit Sivananda Ashram Yoga Farm to foster a community of students and instructors interested in introspection, self-discovery, and their holistic health. Located within an 80-acre expanse of the Sierra Nevada's foothills, the secluded farm enfolds visitors with oak- and pine-filled hills, three nearby rivers, and enough wildlife to stage a cartoon musical.

Under the tutelage of three swamis, a staff of volunteer instructors uses the peaceful setting to help focus students’ attention on personal growth and bodily awareness during traditional outdoor yoga classes and specialized workshops. They faithfully teach the five points of yoga—proper exercise, breathing, relaxation, diet, and meditation—as they lead students down the four paths of yoga. Through the path of action, the path of devotion, Ashtanga, and the yoga of knowledge, they help their students forge a union of body, mind, and spirit. They weave specialized psychology, philosophy, and spirituality lessons into their asanas, which are bolstered with wellness programs and treatments such as massages with herbal oils, nutrition and detoxification programs, and ayurvedic therapies. To further unite their students with the world around them, the yogis promote sustainability with well water, solar-power systems, and an organic vegetable garden with which they can learn permaculture strategies.

The farm has onsite accommodations, including tents and heated cabins that overlook a pond. To keep their guests well-fed, a team of cooks whips up organic vegetarian cuisine following yogic and ayurvedic dietary principles, which means that meals are free of meat, fish, eggs, onions, and caffeinated beverages.
