Joy of Selfless Service Seva Retreat


Join us for our community Seva weekend with the Sat Manav Yogis!

“Seva” in Sanskrit refers to the timeless tradition of “selfless service” performed with joy, devotion and gratitude. Said to be among the highest devotional paths, Seva purifies the mindstream, reduces I-centered thinking and promotes inner peace. It’s an opportunity to release our personal agenda and pitch in for the benefit of all beings.

Here at the ashram, everything we do is Yoga. Seva fills much of our day, and we cherish the opportunity to practice as we work, always seeking perfection. It’s a good thing we find fulfillment in our Seva because it is part of life!

On this special Seva weekend, we’ll jump into stacking wood, sprucing up the grounds and gardens, washing dishes, and whatever else catches our eye. This is a fun opportunity to come share the gift of service and enjoy Yogi Life at our beautiful ashram. Please join us!

Besides Seva time and personal time, this retreat will include:

  • 2.5 hour Yoga Intensives

  • Meditation Instruction

  • Walking meditation on our miles of woodland trails 

  • Delicious, lovingly prepared vegan meals and snacks

  • End-of-the-workday saunas with optional stream dips

  • The chance to participate in our evening meditation at temple dedicated to Shiva

If this is your first time to Sat Manav please read out intro page before registering. Thank you!
