About The Salt Spring Centre of Yoga

The Salt Spring Centre of Yoga is a non-profit educational and spiritual retreat centre dedicated to teaching and promoting the core principles of yoga which embody peace, resilience, and belonging.

The Centre was purchased in 1981 and remains the keystone project of the Dharma Sara Satsang Society – founded in 1974 by a devoted and enthusiastic group of followers of Baba Hari Dass (Babaji).

The legacy of love, service and sanctuary is palpable on the land.

An Agricultural and Environmental Gem

The 69 acre property finds its home in a spectacular natural setting. Cedars, maples, alders, cottonwoods frame the land among many more species of trees, plants and endangered and vulnerable animals.

Walking the land you will encounter a large organic farm, an abundant fruit orchard, an impressive permaculture food forest growing nuts, medicinal herbs and fruit, acres of protected and pristine agricultural land, and beautiful streams and ponds. The Centre shares ecology with and borders the Salt Spring Island Conservancy’s Blackburn lake nature reserve, which has recorded over 110 species; many of which are endangered or vulnerable.

The Salt Spring Centre also contains the Dandaka Forest – one of the most untouched, primordial cedar-swamp wetlands found in North America.
