Unified Through Yoga

We are a learning community inspired by the example of our teacher, Baba Hari Dass. Located on 355 acres of redwoods and grasslands, our peaceful haven is a place where you can step back, slow down, and reconnect to your center, to nature, and to a more authentic flow of life.

At our core we offer a beautiful, community managed space for yoga retreats, personal practice, spiritual and personal development programs, and a variety of classes and workshops. Our modern meeting spaces evoke a rustic and tranquil atmosphere and provide a variety of settings to gather and practice.
