We've been running retreats here at the Ashram for over 35 years, for those seeking to deepen or expand their yoga practice and their understanding in an environment of focused spiritual energy and natural beauty. We offer fully residential retreat courses of between 2 and 10 days in length, and longer sadhana courses combining multiple residential retreats with guided home-study.
Our retreat courses range between 2 and 10 days and cover subjects relating to the main branches of yoga, as well as advaita and tantra. Our emphasis is on cultivating direct insight within our supportive Ashram environment.
Our sadhana courses cover various advanced yogic subjects in greater depth than a single retreat allows. These courses range between 6 and 12 months and combine multiple retreats here at the Ashram with guided home-study.
We usually run retreat courses from February to November, closing for a couple of months over the winter. Below you'll find our courses scheduled for 2022.

The Alchemy of Mantra
With Swami Krishnapremananda
Mantras are like potent seeds planted within, which, with regular ongoing practice, have the potential to release their alchemical power into our heart, mind and energy body, transforming our self-understanding.
Kriya Yoga is a sophisticated and practical method of harmonising and refining the natural energies of our being to allow the physical, emotional, etheric and mental energies to be brought into balance.
Comprising 4 residential weeks spread out between summer 2022 and early 2023More details >>
A Spiritual Sanctuary
As one of the few authentic ashrams to be found outside of India, Mandala Yoga Ashram provides a vibrant link between the spiritual teachings of the yogic sages and sincere seekers of the modern Western world. Founded in 1986 by Swami Nishchalananda Saraswati on his return from 14 years of intensive training with his guru Swami Satyananda Saraswati, and nestling in 25 acres of beautiful, remote hill-country in Southwest Wales, UK, the Ashram has over the years been a source of profound learning and transformation for thousands of people from all walks of life. Our residential retreats are rare opportunities to go deep into the mysteries of yoga in an environment of great natural beauty and focused spiritual energy.More about the Ashram
