The style of Yoga taught in these Centres and Ashrams is referred to as Sivananda Yoga. It is a non-proprietary form of Hatha Yoga. Teachers are all graduates of the Sivananda Yoga Teacher Training Course, which is an intensive month-long immersion course. Classes emphasize proper breathing (Pranayama), exercise (Asanas), relaxation (Shavasana), diet (Vegetarian) and positive thinking and meditation (Vedanta and Dhyana).

The mission  of this Institution is to spread peace, health and joy through the practise of Yoga. All are welcome to these Ashrams and Centres, to learn not only about how Yoga can help maintain a healthy body, but also how Indian Yogic philosophy, applied in daily life, can help maintain an extremely peaceful mind and spirit.

In 1957, Swami Vishnudevananda on instructions from his Spiritual Guru, Swami Sivananda Saraswathi of Rishikesh, came to the West, to bring the teachings of Indian Yoga to the West. He established the first Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre in Montreal, Canada, in 1959 and to date there are close to 60 Sivananda Locations (Ashrams, Yoga Centres and Affiliated Centres) around the globe. Over 26,000 teachers have been trained  so far in this Institution.

The Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Ashrams and Centres are recognized worldwide, for teaching Yoga very authentically, preserving its purity and tradition, dating back several thousand years of India’s Spiritual History.

I?m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that?s equally educative and entertaining,
and without a doubt, you've hit the nail on the head. The problem is something not enough men and women are
speaking intelligently about. Now i'm very happy that
I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.

Please let me know if you're looking for a article author for your weblog.
You have some really good articles and I feel I would be a good asset.

If you ever want to take some of the load off,
I'd love to write some articles for your blog in exchange for
a link back to mine. Please blast me an e-mail if interested.

Thank you!
