My daughters and I went to the ashram on a Yoga Vacation and it was absolutely amazing! What a beautiful place — scenery, accommodations, and spirit. I had not done yoga before and I was a little intimidated — for about a minute! Then I felt so welcome and so supported that I was able to really expand my knowledge and practice and feel totally comfortable.

—Guest from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

About the Ashram

The Sivananda Ashram Yoga Retreat provides an immersion into the daily practices of a yogic lifestyle. We are a traditional yoga ashram for contemporary yoga study and practice. Surrounded by the bounty and beauty of nature, the ashram is a place where people come from around the world to expand and deepen their knowledge of yoga.

 
Setting

We are located across the bay from Nassau, Bahamas, on one of the finest beaches in the world. It is truly an island paradise and a sanctuary of peace and natural beauty. With its pristine white sand beaches, crystal blue waters and five and a half acres of lush tropical gardens, the Sivananda Ashram Yoga Retreat provides the ideal environment for practice, rest, and rejuvenation.

Lineage

We offer a rare combination of traditional ashram and modern yoga retreat. More than just a yoga center, we are an ashram, a spiritual community and study center, established in 1967 by Swami Vishnudevananda (our lineage). The core staff is a community of residents who have devoted themselves to a spiritual path, living, practicing, and working together to care for the ashram and promote peace in the world through the philosophy and practice of yoga. Learn more about Sivananda Yoga.

Teachings

The ashram provides an immersion into a classical yoga tradition and yogic lifestyle, with a daily schedule that includes meditation, pranayama (yogic breathing practices), asana (yoga postures), and learning. We host hundreds of courses, trainings, talks, performances, and special events each year (View program calendar) with highly regarded teachers within the Sivananda lineage as well as guest teachers, presenters, and performers. (View all current presenters)

Mission and Vision

All of the ashram practices are geared toward the development of inner peace for a more harmonious world. Learn more.
