Ananda Ashram’s Short Term Residential Program


We invite those who are interested in deepening their spiritual practice, and/or in taking a personal retreat, to apply to join our 1 week to 3 months Short Term Residential Program. We are able to accommodate a limited number of guest residents. This is an ongoing program which, when a person is approved, can be joined any day of the month. Please be aware that as the seasons and circumstances change there will be updates, which will be communicated.

Note that masks are required indoors in shared communal areas, and outdoors if within 6 ft of another person.

Participants enjoy the use of our facilities, including our seasonal outdoor swimming pool, plus:

  • Daily morning and evening Fire Ceremony and Meditation Programs with Sanskrit chanting and selected readings. (Most morning programs can also be viewed online via Facebook at "Ananda Ashram Live.")
  • In-person and virtual Yoga classes offered daily, which can be practiced at our Yoga studio or in your room. See schedule at
  • Open Sanskrit language classes, including study of the alphabet, mantras and more, offered most days after the morning program.
  • Special classes and events scheduled from time to time.
One main meal (lunch) is served daily 1:00 - 2:00 PM. Fridays through Sundays, a light dinner is available 6:00 - 8:00 PM. Continental breakfast is self-serve, and snacks are available 24/7.
