Group Retreats

“If you want to see a heaven on earth, come to Yogaville”.
~ Sri Swami Satchidananda

Enjoy mountaintop views, build lasting relationships and bring new life and give thanks for your yoga practice. An ideal destination for group excursions—day visits or longer stays—Satchidananda Ashram Yogaville offers a uniquely peaceful, educational, and enlightening experience for visitors of all ages and backgrounds. As a Yoga Teacher you may be looking to expand your teaching and workshop skills, and the Group Services department of Yogaville is here to help every step of the way. We help you prioritize your retreat by offering a wide variety of complimentary services including schedule planning, priority check-in, hatha classes, lectures, private seating in dining halls and more. Plus, if you plan a group retreat now, you come for FREE! Group Services is an anomaly in the wellness retreat world. Choose from two very special mountainside properties; the new Shri Nivas Retreat Center or the Lotus Conference Center. Main campus accommodations are also available. Get ready for your own unique Yogaville experience. Your group can move at its own speed and have access to remote locations for activities catering to every style of yoga and ability level. We know that Yogaville can be relaxing, but your participants will almost surely be set on a path of self-discovery and sometimes spiritual realization. You can’t beat the amenities and vibes that we provide. Come for the day, weekend or longer!
