Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre

The Sivanada Yoga Vedanta Centre was established in 1957 by Swami Vishnudevanada (1927–1993). This nonprofit organization with locations around the world is dedicated to the teaching of classical yoga and vedanta philosophy as a way to promote physical, mental, and spiritual health. As part of a global network of ashrams and centres, yoga teachers guide their students in developing an integral practice of yoga and meditation. More than 25,000 yoga teachers have graduated from the international Sivanada teachers' training courses since 1969.
