Plan a getaway retreat at the Himalayan Institute to replenish, nurture, and recharge yourself. Enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of our 400-acre campus, and join other like-minded participants to help with outdoor service projects including gardening, trail management, groundskeeping, painting, and more.

Participants may be asked to do the following depending on service assignment:
  • Lift and carry 20–60 lbs.
  • Frequently bend, kneel, and reach
  • Stand for long periods of time
  • Climb ladders
  • Serve in outdoor projects

The mission of the Himalayan Institute is to inspire and empower all those who wish to reach their full potential. It is a one-of-a-kind, mission-driven organization that is supported by a community of residents as well as seekers who give the best of themselves while working toward a common goal.

This program runs monthly from Sunday through Thursday. Project times are Monday through Wednesday 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. You will be able to attend daily hatha yoga classes and any programs available to residents. You will also receive a Self-Study Guide that you can use to systematically study hatha, meditation, and yoga philosophy at your own pace, both here and at home when you leave.

Program cost: $250 (includes meals and a shared room with bathrooms down the hall) When available, you can pay for a room upgrade on a cost per night basis.
