Swami SivanandaSwami Vishnu

There is a mysterious power in prayer. Prayer can work wonders. It can move mountains. It should come from the bottom of your heart with feeling.

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.

Sivananda Essentials

Uplift Your Life: Yoga. Meditation. Positive Thinking.

 

To live a healthy lifestyle at home, why not learn the basics while you’re on vacation? Offered year-round, each Sivananda Essentials course offers practical strategies to enhance your physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. Take home practical tools you can use in your daily life for enhanced energy, equilibrium, and self-confidence.

Sivananda Essentials are a great way to visit the Ashram Yoga Retreat for the first time, teaching the Sivananda Yoga practices and keys to a healthy yogic lifestyle as a natural part of your everyday life. These courses are taught by senior Sivananda teachers, each one with years of experience studying, living, and teaching yoga practices, philosophy, and lifestyle.

Essentials meet for one workshop session each day — the rest of the day is yours for yoga classes, beach time, and the rest of the ashram programs and experiences.
