About us

The International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centres, established in 1957 by Swami Vishnudevananda (1927–1993), is a non-profit organisation with locations around the world. We teach classical yoga and Vedanta philosophy as a way to promote physical, mental and spiritual health.

A global network of ashrams, centres and yoga instructors guide students in developing an integral practice of yoga and meditation. More than 43,000 yoga teachers have graduated from the international Sivananda teachers’ training courses since 1969.
