The most popular accommodations are the dormitory accommodations which have shared rooms and baths. Yogaville Satchidananda Ashram have two dormitories, Vivekananda Vihar and Ramalinga Nilayam, which are centrally heated and air-conditioned and convenient to meals and programs.
The rooms are able to comfortably accommodate from two to eight people in upper and lower bunk beds. A limited number of private dormitory rooms with shared bathrooms are also available for one or two people. Dormitory accommodations are not coed.

Each room in Yogaville Satchidananda Ashram's six unit guest house is equipped with a small refrigerator, queen size bed and full bath. Each room in the nine unit guest house is equipped with a queen sized bed and full bath, and no refrigerator.
The newest Lotus Guest House has twenty-two private rooms with private baths. Twelve have a full size bed, two have a single bed and eight have two single beds. We have rooms available for the physically challenged. All of the Guest Houses have wireless internet access.
Our goal is to help you become better acquainted with Yogaville and the yogic way of life through participation with our yoga-rich daily schedule, special classes and a tour of the grounds. On Saturday evening, there is a public program called satsang, which includes kirtan (chanting), a presentation by a senior member or a guest speaker and a video of Sri Swami Satchidananda sharing his warmth and wisdom with us. The weekend concludes Sunday morning with a class on the Various Branches of Yoga and how each one benefits your life. Every weekend is a Welcome Weekend at Yogaville.
