Ashram Support Staff

Support StaffSupport Staff members volunteer their service at Yogaville, on a short-term basis in various capacities, while participating in sadhana (spiritual practice) and ashram activities. Usually Support Staff shifts will be in housekeeping, the kitchen, or a specific ashram department.

Participants agree to comply with the Integral Yoga Lifestyle Principles and are expected to do their personal best with regards to sadhana, subject to a weekly review. They live in shared dorm rooms or camp in their own tents.

Support Staff is open to those who have served as Living Yoga Trainees (LYT), with the recommendation of the LYT Coordinator, and to graduates of one of the Ashram’s Integral Yoga Teacher Training programs.

A minimum commitment of one (1) week is required, renewable at the discretion of the Resident Services department. Support Staff members may serve a maximum of one (1) month.
