The Sivananda Ashram Yoga Ranch Residential Programs are the foundation of the international Sivananda organization and the main teaching of our founders. Karma Yoga, when practiced with the proper intention, and for an extended period of time, is known to diminish the ego's influence, open your heart and help you feel more connected with the whole.
Karma Yoga, or selfless service, is about acting without expectation of reward and giving oneself, wholeheartedly to the experience and the moment.
Participants in this program offer selfless service and enjoy the various programs that are offered at the ashram including satsangs (meditation, chanting and lecture) and some of the afternoon workshops. Spiritual guidance and advice is provided to participants by senior staff of the ashram.
