INTERNATIONAL SIVANANDA YOGA VEDANTA CENTRES

The International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centres organisation with locations around the world is dedicated to the teaching of classical yoga and vedanta to promote physical, mental and spiritual health. A global network of ashrams and city centres offer teachings on all aspects of yoga and meditation including our world-renowned teacher training courses, yogic studies including raja yoga and vedanta and sacred culture programs.
Our founder Swami Vishnudevananda synthesised the essence of yoga into five principles that could be easily incorporated into daily life.
These comprise the core teachings of the four paths of classical, traditional yoga and make the wisdom of the ancient sages easily accessible to beginner and adept alike.
