General Policies

The Salt Spring Centre of Yoga is home to a working yoga community. Residents choose to live according to basic yogic principles of diet and behaviour. In keeping with the traditional diet prescribed for yoga practitioners, we do not use meat, fish, eggs, garlic or onions in the Centre kitchen. Likewise, smoking, illegal drugs and alcohol are not permitted on the property. These and the following policies are foundational to the atmosphere of respect and peace that has been created over the three decades of the Centre’s existence:

  • Other than in the kitchens and for certain ceremonies, no naked flame or incendiary hazard is permitted on the property. This means no open fires, candles, smudges, incense or kerosene lamps are allowed on the land.
  • We ask that you dress modestly and avoid public nudity.
  • Please do not bring pets of any kind.
  • Please avoid strongly-scented oils and cosmetics.
  • We have a no-outdoor shoe policy in all our major buildings and we ask that you remove your shoes at the entrance. Also, if you have been walking barefoot outdoors please ensure your feet are clean before you enter buildings, and remain off carpeted areas.
  • Quiet hours are observed from 9 pm – 8 am.
