Welcome to the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum) Centre. We offer many courses in yoga and meditation for the beginner, intermediate as well as for the advanced practitioner. We follow the ancient discipline of yoga practice as taught by founder Swami Vishnudevananda, one of the foremost disciples of Swami Sivananda of Rishikesh.
The Centre in Thiruvananthapuram
In 1987 the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre in West Fort, Trivandrum was opened as part of the International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centres (ISYVC), a non-profit organization (this centre is now under re-construction). Swami Vishnudevananda synthesized the ancient wisdom of yoga into five basic principles that could easily be incorporated into one's daily lifestyle to provide the foundation for healthy living. The teachings at the centre are based around these 'Five Points of Yoga'.
The Five Points of Yoga include:
- Proper Exercise - asana
- Proper Breathing - pranayama
- Proper Relaxation - savasana
- Proper Diet - vegetarian
- Positive Thinking and Meditation - Vedanta and Dhyana
It is best to start at the beginning. If you are new to yoga or Sivananda style of yoga, we suggest you start with the Yoga Beginners course.
Ashram Visitors please note
We do not offer accomodation here at the City centre, only regular daily classes.
