Welcome to the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Chennai Centre. We offer many courses in yoga and meditation for the beginner, intermediate as well as for the advanced practitioner. Ayurvedic massage and treatments is also available at the centre. We follow the ancient discipline of yoga practice as taught by founder Swami Vishnu-devananda, one of the foremost disciples of Sri Swami Sivananda of Rishikesh.
In 1989 the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre in Chennai was opened as part of the International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centres (ISYVC), a non-profit organisation. Swami Vishnu-devananda 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 & Meditation - Vedanta & 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 1.
