Satchidananda Ashram–Yogaville was founded by Sri Swami Satchidananda (Sri Gurudev), an esteemed spiritual leader whose message of peace has been heard around the globe.
Honored with the Albert Schweitzer Humanitarian Award, Sri Gurudev dedicated his life to the cause of peace—both individual and universal—and to religious harmony among all people. His teachings are the Ashram’s guiding principles.
Yogaville is located in the peaceful rolling hills of Buckingham, Virginia, within view of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Since 1980, Satchidananda Ashram-Yogaville has served as a year-round spiritual retreat center and residential community offering teacher trainings, programs, retreats, and guest stays.
In addition, the center has facilities for teachers and groups who are interested in conducting their own private retreats.
