How It Works
OmStays is a reciprocal Guest/Host travel program. Members are asked to act as both Guests and Hosts. OmStays connects yoga travelers. Join for $35 a year then stay as a guest in a member home for $15 per night. Our homestays offer an affordable, eco-conscious accommodation alternative while you travel for yoga classes, retreats or just for the experience. Find events, classes, studios and new friends wherever your yoga travels take you.
1. Join for $35 per year
OmStays is a reciprocal Guest/Host travel program. Choose your membership level (see the chart below for the benefits of each). Pay an annual membership fee. After the payment process is complete, login and create your profile. Simply fill out a Personal Profile sharing a little about yourself as a potential Guest. And finally, create your Property Profile with photos and description of the lodgings you are offering as a Host. Studio Members also create a profile for their studio to feature in our Yoga Studio Directory.
Members can then access our various directorys. Find Homestays, Yoga Studios, Yoga Teachers or Yoga Events at your desired destination. If you are seeking a homestay, simpley search by location or keyword, then select a Host. Contact the Host directly to inquire about availability and to work out the details of your stay.
Enjoy and share your experiences as either Guest or Host. Guests stay for $15 per night, payable to your Host on the first night of your stay. After your visit is over, be sure to share feedback on the OmStays website regarding your experience as either Guest or Host and be sure to sign your Host's online Guestbook.
Annual membership dues unlock a world of affordable and eco-sensitive lodging options for traveling yogis. OmStays offers three levels of individual (one-person) membership. Requirements and annual dues for each are different.
OmStays is a member-based homestay community for yoga enthusiasts that encourages the enhancement of our beings and our lives through the practice of yogic virtues. By cultivating a reciprocal host and guest community, OmStays promotes an atmosphere where members practice karmic yoga through the virtues of non-harming, truthfulness, compassion and kindness. OmStays community members must be at least 21 years of age, and agree to provide a clean and comfortable sleeping environment and either a light or full breakfast for one or more guests.
Participation is exclusively internet based, in line with our eco-conscious philosophy. As a member, your name is listed in the password-protected OmStays Directory. When you join, you will have immediate access to search the Directory to arrange an OmStay.
Nonprofit organizations may join OmStays for free but access is restricted to posting events on the Calendar and providing a profile of the organization. Nonprofit members cannot access the OmStays Directory.
