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 campus houses our local Meditation & Yoga Programs as well as our Yogimmersions.  When you participate in a retreat or professional training, you now stay in our "new" 130-year old historic building.  This campus offers two great benefits:  lowered housing & meals fees plus the bliss of a dedicated spiritual environment.  

Nataraja statueAt the Ashram’s founding in 2009, we moved into our first building to provide a home for the highest teachings.  Yet we always knew we’d outgrow it and planned for a larger facility.  In Downingtown’s historic district, Lokananda places yoga right in the middle of daily life, right where Swamiji wants us to be.  Centrally located, our main street campus is seen by thousands on their daily commute.

You are a modern day yogi, practicing an ancient science.  Lokananda is also both old and new — our 130-year old building is all-new on the first floor.  All new floors, walls, wiring and plumbing make it a pristine space  decorated with vibrant colors.  We have also upgraded some upstairs apartments for yogis and are continuing our Capital Campaign in order to fund more housing space.

"Wow!"  "It's beautiful!"  Arriving yogis are delighted by our new digs.  Our beds have bookcase headboards, underbed storage drawers, gorgeous new linens and brightly colored pillows and blankets - yoga blankets, of course.  

Living room at LokanandaThe whole place is decorated with light.  In addition to the big windows in every room, we've added lots of mirrors and decorative lamps, to give a feel very similar to the Ashram building, which is full of light.
Comfortable living rooms give room for yogis to gather indoors,  Our outdoor seating has proven to be very popular, an inviting area for meals and lounging.  
We hope to see you soon...
