be part of our ashram community

When you stay with us at our beautiful Sivananda Ashram Beacon Yoga Centre, you are invited to participate in our daily residential program. The ashram program provides education in the pathways of Integral Yoga, through practice, study and meditation. 

Working as individuals in a community, a mindful, aware and generous atmosphere is cultivated to support the ongoing process of spiritual opening.
