Yoga voluntary service

Yoga has thrived in India for thousands of years, having been passed down from generation to generation in the spirit of Karma Yoga (selfless service to others). This dynamic force has been the backbone of all activities of the Sivananda Yoga Centres since their foundation 50 years ago. The Sivananda Yoga Centres and Ashrams are peaceful oases for intensive yoga practice, open to interested people from all walks of life.

There are many fields in which to volunteer:

  • Building and grounds maintenance
  • Kitchen
  • Boutique and reception
  • Teaching
  • PR (mailings etc.)
  • Administration (maintaining mailing lists etc.)
  • Helping in the building and upkeep of additional ashrams in Europe
  • And many more


You should already be acquainted with the Sivananda Yoga centres or ashrams through a yoga teachers' training course.

If you are sincerely interested in doing a workstudy or (temporary) staff programme in one of the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centres, please contact us at voluntary(at)sivananda.net. Please attach a short CV and photograph to your e-mail, and be sure to indicate how much experience you have with yoga and meditation.
