Long term residents: If you join you will in effect become a founding member of the UOCA Rainbow organisation, so it is important to read as much information located on these websites links at the end of this page before making your decision.





Your stay would be paid for by a monthly donation depending on your circumstances - this is to cover costs for the premises, training, food, etc without profit as this is a non profit organisation. A donation from each resident above this amount to cover tuition is recommended depending on their income, assets and savings – see application form for guidelines. Be aware any suggested amounts are far below commercial rates and are simply to cover costs and you are encouraged to donate more than this if you can.

The ashram is sparsely furnished in Zen style. You are encouraged to sit in lotus posture and not on chairs. Minimalist approach will mean you bring as little as possible.

You would be trained in the UOCA technique of yoga and meditation and nutrition. In return you would be contributing to the ashram by working in the gardens, house, office and so learning important yogic skills in running an ashram. You would be have to be prepared to surrender to the process to benefit and transform your life.
