Sivananda Yoga Vidya Peetham is an ashram / Gurukula system set up in the year 2010 to propagate the teachings of Yoga and Vedanta philosophy as given by one of the great and renowned spiritual masters - Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj.

Attending a Yoga/Vedanta course is a wonderful opportunity for spiritual aspirants to immerse themselves within a yoga experience; to develop personal discipline, a deeper understanding of the mind, body and spirit and connect with other like minded people within a world-wide spiritual community.

Giving the student a solid foundation in personal development, the courses offered will explore Yoga and Vedanta philosophy, Sanskrit, yoga asana, meditation and anatomy & physiology while delivering practical experience of how to share the knowledge of yogic way of living with to others.
