Since 2010, Yoga Vida has been nurturing the well-being of yoga practitioners in New York City through postural practice, philosophical inquiry, and meditation techniques. Yoga Vida Farms expands its mission to food and health. The retreat center is located on a 62 acre forest property in the Hudson Valley of New York State. Most food is grown on the farm. Chef Davis Lindsey prepares vegetarian meals, the majority of which are vegan and gluten free. Accommodations, practice spaces and facilities present relaxed luxury immersed in nature for movement retreats or corporate excursions.

The vision of Yoga Vida Farms is inspired by multiple retreats to India in which Mike Patton, cofounder of Yoga Vida, dreamt of a space to slow down and connect to people and nature. YVF is committed to holistic wellness and sustainable agriculture; and supports farm and business practices that propagate responsible stewardship of our land and resources. The farm has a solar-powered composting facility to manage its waste stream and feed its vegetables, a small orchard in restoration, an experimental apiary for queen rearing, and a bountiful landscape of mushrooms, wildflowers and herbs. YVF is a proud member of 1% for the planet. We partner with friends and organizations to host events and retreats of all kinds where food – community – and awareness of the environs are at the core.
