Yasodhara Ashram is a yoga retreat and study centre founded by Swami Sivananda Radha in 1963, in Kootenay Bay, British Columbia, Canada.
Today, 50 years after it was established, Yasodhara Ashram is an enduring and vibrant spiritual community, now under the direction of Swami Radha’s spiritual successor, Swami Radhananda. Set in the beautiful mountains of southeastern British Columbia, we invite people of all ages and backgrounds to pursue their self-development and discover the promise of yoga.

Then tour the beautifully tended grounds, organic gardens and beaches, and visit the Temple of Light, the Beach Prayer Room and the Divine Mother shrine.
