Additional Housing info

Housing option 1:

$850 (plus $100 refundable damage deposit)

There is a 3-room apartment upstairs from the yoga studio. This is a quaint, quiet, and comfortable space with many plants and the feel of a home. If you stay here, you will be responsible to bring your own bedding (air-mattress, blankets, pillow, etc). There is plenty of floor space to spread out. The apartment contains a simple kitchen and food preparation area. People who stay here should not plan on any elaborate cooking. The restroom in this apartment is off-limits, as it is Radha’s private facility, so guests will use the studio restrooms downstairs. This invitation is available for a maximum of 6 people (men and women) on a first-come-first-served basis. Again, to clarify, this is a co-ed housing option and men and women may be in the same room. The best part of staying here is convenience—you are literally steps away from the yoga studio.

Housing option 2:

$900, $950,  $1,000,  $1,050, $1,600 or $1,800 (plus $100 refundable damage deposit)

Radha’s residence is a 5-bedroom home that is an 8-minute drive from the yoga studio. This space has 2 large living rooms, a large dining area, a large kitchen, and three bathrooms. The size and comfort of each of the rooms varies considerably, which is why there are several pricing tiers. There is a master bedroom with ensuite private bathroom ($1,800), a bedroom with a king sized bed and a shared bathroom ($1,600), a double size mattress bunk bed with shared bathroom ($1,050), and floor space in the living room for an air mattress or futon with a shared bathroom ($950). All of these options are offered on a first-come-first-served basis.
