Sivananda Yoga Directory

Welcome to the Yoga Journal Sivananda Yoga Directory page. In this section you will find yoga studios, retreat centers, and teachers who specialize or incorporate Sivananda Yoga into their practice and philosophy.

Swami Vishnu-devananda(1927-1993) developed Sivananda Yoga after being a primary student of Swami Sivananda (1887-1963). This practice is designed to raise and elevate a person’s consciousness. The yoga focuses on five fundamental principles: asana, pranayama, deep relaxation (Savasana), vegetarianism, positive thinking, and mediation. The classes are relatively gentle and are suitable for all body types. The practice of yoga poses is solely dedicated to a person’s spiritual development. Each class focuses on the practice of the 12 core poses plus chanting, breathing, mediation, and corpse pose.
