The Sivananda Yoga Retreat provides an immersion experience into the daily practices of a yogic lifestyle. More than just a yoga center, the Yoga Retreat offers teachings derived from the deeply-rooted Hatha Yoga traditions of a renowned lineage. All of the Ashram practices are geared toward the development of inner peace for a more harmonious world.

Established by Swami Vishnudevananda in the name of Master Swami Sivananda, the Ashram presents a balanced experience of Raja Yoga, Karma Yoga, Bhakti Yoga and Jnana Yoga. The daily schedule includes meditation, pranayama (yogic breathing practices), asana (yoga postures) and study.

There is a variety of options for your stay or Yoga Vacation. Our most popular Yoga Programs include:

Yoga Teacher Training

The Yoga Certification Course is recommended for yoga practitioners of all levels who aspire to learn how to become a yoga instructor, bring the joy of yoga to others, or deepen their own yoga practice. In this four-week immersion course, students live a yogic lifestyle while learning from advanced yoga practitioners in a well-rounded curriculum of yoga study. A 500-Hour Advanced Yoga Teachers Training Course is available to the students who have graduated from the 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training Course.

Yoga for Beginners

Yogis of all levels are welcome to experience relaxation and peace of mind at the Yoga Retreat. We offer Yoga Beginners Courses to help build a solid foundation, taught by our skillful yoga instructors at the Ashram. We also offer two Beginner Yoga Classes twice daily, ensuring that students are guided at a comfortable pace.

Yoga Classes

Our yoga classes are specifically designed to balance the body and mind. These Sivananda Yoga-style classes are taught by graduates of our Yoga Teacher Training Course who received their yoga certification from our Sivananda Yoga Teacher Training Course. We offer Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced yoga classes.
