The ashram, founded in 1971 by Swami Vishnu-Devananda in the Sierra foothills, is a non-profit organization run entirely by volunteers and yogis dedicated to promoting a healthy and disciplined lifestyle, which is conducive to high consciousness and individual and world peace. The ashram facility is an ideal location for all to come to learn this tradition.
