Extended Ashram Stays
Deepen your process of transformation
A sacred space to heal and transform
Our extended stay programs offer you the opportunity to join in all community classes and activities, including individual transformational healing sessions, and include ample free time for reflection, meditation, creative expression, and enjoyment of Nature, while gaining the exquisite delight of egoless practice of karma yoga.
Step into this safe and love-filled hermetically sealed vessel and let the power of Presence do the work of alchemical transformation. You will be guided adeptly through the sacred process of ego death and divine rebirth.
Staying at the Ashram
A sacred refuge of peace
Situated in the mountains of Costa Rica’s Pacific Coast, the Sat Yoga Ashram is an oasis of beauty and peace where you can experience an energy field of serenity, joy, and silence.
Experience the majesty of the misty mountains, forests, rivers, and gardens. Enjoy mouth-watering vegetarian meals, mostly grown in our organic gardens, and prepared three times daily in Ruchira, our ashram kitchen.
Extended Stay Programs
After the successful completion of a four-week Ashram Immersion Program participants who wish to stay longer at the ashram can apply to join our Sevadhari Karma Yoga Program.
What is the difference between the Immersion and the Experience Program?
The Ashram Experience is different from the Immersion Program mainly in the emphasis of the program. In both programs, you will experience the Sat Yoga way of life including karma yoga (selfless service), gyana (teachings), meditation, and dharma (our way of life and rules of living). However, whereas the Immersion Program is mainly focused on study and meditation, the Ashram Experience is based much more on karma yoga (selfless service).
The Immersion Program offers participants daily theory classes (up to 6 a week) in small group settings for the duration of the program that provide the fundamental concepts of Sat Yoga philosophy. Immersion students usually participate in 4 – 6 hours of karma yoga a week. During the Ashram Experience, only two-three weekly theory classes are offered, whereas participants contribute 18 – 20 weekly hours of karma yoga. In both programs, there are opportunities for one-to-one meditations with senior students as well as daily participation in our community classes.
