Our mission is to spread peace, health, and joy through the practice and philosophy of yoga and Vedanta.

We are a traditional yoga ashram with a mission to teach classical yoga. All are welcome to come to our ashram, we learn from all traditions, and actively promote Unity in Diversity through interfaith and interspiritual dialog, including perspectives from science and the arts. We seek to promote outer peace in the world through inner peace, by sharing the wisdom and practices of yoga and contributing to a positive shift in consciousness on the planet. The ashram was founded by Swami Vishnudevananda, named in honor of his teacher, Swami Sivananda, and continues to teach in the lineage of the two great yoga masters.

Community Voices: Joining the Brunch Team in the Bahamas Kitchen

It may sound daunting to show up for kitchen duty as a karma yogi at 6.30 am on your first day, but the smell of homemade bread, freshly mixed cinnamon granola and ginger-infused sauces is enough to lift anyone’s spirits. That first day, I had a chance to observe the strict regime needed to feed 180 hungry visitors at precisely 10 o’clock every morning.
