Yogaville

By
Real Estate Agent with Associate Broker Keller Williams Realty

Integral Yoga guru Sri Swami Satchidananda (1914-2003) was born in India and established the Satchidananda  Ashram - Yogaville (800-858-9642. Call for current opening hours) to further his goals of peace, universal understanding and enlightenment.  The 750 acre rural retreat centers around the Light of Truth Universal Shrine (L.O.T.U.S.) shaped like a 100-foot blooming lotus.  Inside it is a neon-lit meditation chamber and 12 altars symbolizing the 10 major religions, "Other Known," and "those Still Unknown."

The ashram hosts workshops and retreats year-round and guests are welcome to stop by for an afternoon, day, week or longer.  Lodging options include camping ($60-$70), dorms ($60-$65 pp with shared bath or $125-$135 d for private rooms with shared bath). and the Lotus Guest House ($135-$145 with private bath), all of which include three buffet vegetarian meals, yoga classes, and meditation sessions every day.  Pickup or drop-off service from Charlottesville is $35 pp each way.

I wish I could get people from my office to do this... There is so much stress out there especially during our busy season.  I have been taking Yoga for years and it is truly a great stress relief when things are so choatic.  Thanks for sharing this.
