Acknowledging that Yasodhara Ashram is located on the unceded territory of First Nations peoples and in the spirit of reconciliation, Yasodhara Ashram Society is awarding bursaries to Indigenous individuals interested in embracing the physical, mental/emotional and spiritual aspects of yoga. The Ashram is open to all spiritual traditions and is respectful of Indigenous traditions.
The bursaries are open to all First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples, with a special invitation to the Ktunaxa and Sinixt peoples on whose unceded territory the Ashram is located.
The bursaries offer recipients up to 50% of the total cost of retreats and courses, which range in length from 5 days to 3 months, and include accommodation (single room with shared bathroom) as well as tuition. (For the three-month Yoga Development Course, a full application process including an interview is required.)
FYI: Community Guidelines while at the Ashram.
Our Two Month Karma Yoga (Selfless Service) program is another way of coming to the Ashram. It has no fee and therefore has no need of a bursary.
Our Yoga Journey and 5 & 7 Day Retreats are guided retreats happening throughout the year - see dates below.
