Absolutely no drugs. No taking, distributing or dealing in or around the ashram. If you learn of others keeping, taking or distributing drugs you are obliged to report this to the principal of the course immediately.

The Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centres of Europe are dedicated to creating a more conscious and compassionate world. We accomplish that mission by creating a safe and sacred environment. We champion spirituality, ethical behaviour, respect, trust, loyalty, and commitment. As such, we have a responsibility to maintain a safe and sacred space for deeper inner work, in accordance with the teachings of Swami Sivananda and our teacher and Guru Swami Vishnudevananda. Accordingly, the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centres of Europe prohibit all staff from engaging in sexually suggestive remarks and gesturing, and unnecessary and offensive touching. You are therefore expected to refrain from directing any such behaviour towards staff, students, or guests. If in spite of the efforts of the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centres of Europe in this respect, you believe you have been subjected to sexual harassment from outside presenters, staff, guests, or from a swami, you should immediately report the incident to one of the Acharyas in order for corrective action to be undertaken without delay. Complaints made to an Acharya will be treated confidentially and the alleged violator or any third party will not be advised of the complainant’s identity without the latter’s consent.
I hereby acknowledge the following with my signature: I hereby agree that I have read the rules of the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre and that I agree to abide by these rules and that I will be present at all activities. I agree to take full responsibility for myself and for my personal property and will not hold the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre liable for any loss or damage thereof, unless the aforementioned is due to negligence on the part of the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre.
