‘The world that we are living in now needs healing – the healing qualities of positivity, silence, relaxation, care, compassion and cooperation.  We need to consciously access the will to bring healing forces into the world in which we live and into ourselves.’    Swami Radhananda

Welcome to Yasodhara Yoga Ottawa, a community of aspirants connected to the Yasodhara Ashram in British Columbia, who come together to deepen our understanding of how to bring yoga into our daily lives while offering classes to the larger community locally, nationally and internationally now that we can join through Zoom.

In normal times, we offer Satsang and yoga classes at our centre at 65 Ruskin Street in Ottawa as well as hosting an annual retreat and workshops offered by senior teachers from Yasodhara Ashram. Our class sizes are kept small, and the Yasodhara practices we offer are reflective and practical. We welcome people of all ages, abilities and spiritual traditions. We now offer through Zoom.

Zoom with us in 2022.


We would love to have you join our weekly Kundalini Yoga classes as well as our Monday evening Satangs. To join a zoom gathering please contact Joan. We also offer Thursday Meditation. Check out our New Kundalini Yoga session.
