Beneath a canopy of towering Live Oaks, the six-acre campus features lush tropical gardens, stone decks and walkway, and a peaceful sand beach. The property includes a Main House, Lodge, two small cabins and the new Healing Arts Center, to accommodate our offices, programs, and guests.

Study with a Master of Yoga

Gurudev Shri Amritji (Yogi Amrit Desai) is one of a handful of gurus who came to America from India in the early 1960s. This wave began the initial Yoga craze that has grown into the massive and diverse Yoga practices we have worldwide today. Shri Amritji is one of the first arrivals and the last living guru from this initial wave, and a pioneer in bringing the authentic practices of Yoga to the West. He regularly gives lectures on yoga and meditation while he is on campus at the Amrit Yoga Institute.

Exceptional Vegetarian Cuisine

Our chef and kitchen staff provide delicious, inspired vegetarian meals. The food we serve is not only vegetarian and organic, most is from a local farm, Crone’s Cradle Conserve.

Prior to your arrival, please notify the office of any special dietary restrictions you may have. Although we are unable to accommodate all restrictions, refrigerators are available in our Lodge for special food needs.
