    "Awesome experience"

    Meeting new and interesting people. Finding people in a like minded community. Eating delicious healthy meals together. The speaker Killy was amazing. Painting mandalas was fun.

    "Authentic Experience "

    I love how authentic and relaxed the place was for us. It was truly a peaceful, and self reflective opportunity for us to revive. It was truly a vacation, that I don’t need a vacation from. I am already able to take home a lot of what I practiced and continue in a meaningful “place of peace.”

    "Excellent"

    The yoga instructors were great, I had 3 different instructors for each day and each of the instructors I learnt a different position of yoga.

    The food was well cooked, tasty and filling, Brunch and Dinner was sufficient for the day. You were able to buy snacks, drinks and popsicles and ice cream from their gift store. The grounds were well kept and beautiful views all around and not to mention that the staff were friendly.

    "Peaceful oasis"

    This meditation retreat was a breathe of fresh air. Not too far from the cities of Philadelphia and New York—the retreat offers a peaceful oasis away from the hustle and bustle of city life. I chose to camp to fully enjoy the fresh air and night sky, the camp grounds were simple with bathrooms nearby. The facilities were beautiful and well-kept. The food was incredible—vegan, healthy, and a nice variety for every meal. I enjoyed the structure of the daily schedule, which included meditation, yoga, and chanting. The afternoon sessions changed daily and varied from music workshops to nature walks. I would highly recommend this retreat to anyone looking for an opportunity to reconnect with nature, themselves, and like-minded individuals.

    "After a month of the retreat I could see even more benefits"

    The structure of the yoga classes, the satsang, the schedule, all makes perfect sense. It has been a month after I went to the retreat and I left in a much peaceful, restful, calmer place. I can tell you that after a month I recognize how beneficial it has been for me. The way the Hatha yoga classes are teached has given me a renewed appreciation for yoga and for the way that the classes were structured and explained; such a big difference to other random yoga massive classes you may take at other places, where yoga is a business and not a discipline and the teachers do not focus on your alignment etc., or explaining how the poses impact your body and what they are intended to accomplish.

    I also Loved, Loved LOVED, the Ayurvedic massage. I can assure you that left me in such a relaxed state that I was all smiles and could barely talk...absolutely blissful (Thanks Natalie)

    "3 days 2 nights stay at the Ashram"

    It was such a unique experience! I drove from Montreal to get away and take time for myself. I did not have much expectations as it was my first time in an Ashram, but came back feeling ressourced and with tools to meditate at home. Thank you again for the beautiful stay! Ps - the food was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G, cooks are great :)!!!

    "Just the rejuvenating escape I needed "

    Beautiful location, amazing staff. I am a beginner to Yoga and despite being around people who practiced regularly, I felt right at home. I enjoyed the meditation sessions although I am new to this practice as well. The whole feel of this retreat and ashram is so peaceful and everyone is filled with such positive light and gratitude. There was a teacher training course concluding while I was there, so it was wonderful to see so many young Sivananda yoga trainees on the sight - it made for a very active weekend in the ranch. I went to sivananda to help me find some clarity during a difficult time period in my life - I got exactly that. I can't wait to go back again soon.

    All the instructors were really exceptional, especially Katie- these were some of the best yoga sessions I've ever had. The massage was unbelievable, heightened by the beautiful location and the general zen vibe of everyone working at the ashram

    "Fantastic get away"

    The food was great, they accommodated my vegan lifestyle. The sense of community was beautiful. Yoga classes were fun and challenging. The rooms were small but for a get away experience it was perfect.

    "Refreshment of the soul jam packed into a weekend"

    Around the yoga ranch, the air itself is relaxing, welcoming, and peaceful, and the people were doubly so. This was my first yoga retreat at an ashram, and everyone on the staff was warm, welcoming, and instructive, helping me to make the most out of the weekend. At the orientation for beginners, held daily, we learned about the founding of the practice and the ashram, and in each activity, from eating to yoga classes to satsang, I felt gently welcomed, not pushed or prodded, into a strong community of people seeking something greater. The food and landscape are magnificent, some of the guest speakers at satsang were a little quirky but everyone had something important to share, and the whole thing felt very much like the breath of fresh air I needed. Highly recommend trying out this way of like for a day, a night, a week.

    The commitment and devotion of the teachers to the yoga path and teachings of the Gurus. Their humility and great sense of humour was quite inspiring.
