Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre in London
New residential courses at the London centre
The London Centre is transforming into a city Ashram! An Ashram is a place for retreat where one can experience yoga as a lifestyle on a 'live-in study' basis. It offers a deep and dynamic practice of all aspects of yoga under the guidance of experienced teachers. It blends the stimulating company of sincere yoga practitioners with the warm and nurturing energy of a spiritual community – all this just a few minutes from the River Thames!
The courses will follow the daily schedule of the Sivananda Ashrams: 2 Yoga classes, 2 meditations, in-depth workshops, 2 vegetarian meals and participation in the Ashram community life. There will be time to relax, go for walks along the river or visit London for those coming from abroad. The courses are open to all. Students enrolled for the course are required to participate in all activities and follow the yogic lifestyle taught at the Centre. Yoga is based on self-discipline (Sadhana). It is this discipline that allows one to experience the full benefits of the course while helping to maintain the spiritual energy of the Centre.
