Located in Woodbourne, New York, the Sivananda Ashram Yoga Ranch is an educational facility that teaches yoga to instructors who come from across the world to learn. The Yoga Ranch promotes yoga not only as a tool for peace, but as a way to connect people to each other and the environment. As part of those teachings, the ashram has always worked to be as sustainable as possible in all areas of its operation, including on-premises food production and teaching attendees how they can help the planet. The ranch’s new 93-kW solar carport perfectly aligns with that long-standing commitment and will offset virtually all of the ashram’s electrical needs.
