Ashram — Residential Facility

1400 Hampton Drive, Downingtown PA 19335

This is Swami Nirmalananda’s residence, which she shares with other committed yogis.  Residents have taken vows as brahmacharis (temporary monkhood) and participate in several hours of daily practice with Swamiji.  She frequently welcomes invited guests for meals and other events.  Click here for more info.



Downingtown Yoga & Meditation Center

116 E Lancaster Ave, Downingtown PA 19335

We call our building Lokananda - our Bliss Place, but the sign on the front says "Downingtown Yoga & Meditation Center."  This is our downtown Downingtown campus, which houses two types of programs:

Meditation & Yoga:  

We offer free meditation programs two or three times weekly, plus 5 or more yoga classes and periodic Half Day Workshops.  Formal meditation courses are offered every two or three months.  We have a well-stocked yoga shop for your convenience.  Click here for more info.  


Our retreats and professional trainings are now housed in our "new" 130-year old historic building.  Massive renovations have been completed with more under way, to make this beautiful "old dame" ready for modern-day yogis.  This move offers two great benefits:  lowered housing & meals fees plus the bliss of a dedicated spiritual environment.  


Airport Shuttle

We are happy to provide you with shuttle service from and to the airport, up to a day before your program as well as a day after your program.  We can pick you up between 8:00 am – 7:00 pm for $45 per person each way. Include your shuttle request and airline information in your Personal Questionnaire, which we send you before your program.  

We will attempt to pick up multiple people with one shuttle trip if your flights are within one hour of each other.  If you need a pickup time earlier or later than our scheduled hours, we will give you the contact information for the professional shuttle service we use, and they will give you their discounted rate when you use the name, “Svaroopa® Vidya Ashram.” 

You may prefer to take the train from the airport to the Downingtown train station.  We will provide free shuttle service if you arrange it 48 hours in advance at 484.678.7222.  For further information visit: septa.org or amtrak.com.
