This Thursday marks the first day of Fall—

when the world begins to curl inward, preparing for winter’s peace. It’s a favorite time for many—including many at Yogaville.

This season, we’re excited to host several workshops and events that will foster self-reflection and gratitude, helping you lay a clear foundation for your goals in the coming year.


October 1–10
Each night at 7:30; Free

Navaratri is a nine-day Hindu festival that honors the nine manifestations of the goddess Durga. It’s a time for inviting progress, prosperity, and virtue into your life, while celebrating the feminine energies of the divine!

Each night Yogaville will hold special ceremonies, pujas, and services—each night focusing on one of Durga’s nine forms. Join us and discover the power of inviting Shakti energy into your life.
