The Sivananda Yoga Ranch is a wonderful weekend escape from the hustle and bustle of city living. The all-inclusive weekend yoga immersion economises your time and budget. Arrive on Friday evening, or even for the 4:00 pm Yoga asana class if you can get an early start, a sumptuous vegetarian dinner at 6:00pm, and wind down with the group evening meditation and chanting practice.
Take a relaxing country walk, or just relax in our wood-burning sauna. During our summer months, you can even offer yourself an Ayurvedic body treatment or a therapeutic massage from our Well Being Center. If you are feeling more energetic and adventurous, you can even bring up a bicycle to explore the miles of Catskill mountain roads.
A weekend getaway offers you a complete break from your usual routine, with daily yoga classes, meditation, delicious vegetarian meals, fresh air, lectures and wonderful company. It is a unique opportunity to relax and rejuvenate, a break from the stresses and strains of your daily life. It is not like any other holiday you have experienced, it aids in relaxing the body and revitalizing the mind.
