These 5 principles constitute the essence of the teachings of the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centers. These simple principles help to clarify the science of Yoga and make it accessible to the majority of people.

Tips for you
I had an amazing 6 days in this center. Staying here was the best decision I could have possibly made. Within the price are included morning meditation, morning yoga class - evening yoga class ,two meals a day and a bed. The perfect way to slow down, regain energy, dive into the world of yoga/meditation and be surrounded by wonderful people. Its a safe area, with a very local flair, apart from all the chunky party tourism The day starts at 6:00am with one hours of meditation. Right after you can go to the early morning yoga course or the one around 9:00am After that, we normally gathered in the kitchen for a little snack : ) , the best after getting up early and a wonderful 1.5 hour yoga course. Then, around midday there is Karma Yoga (help a bit in the house to maintain this place clean, nice and affordable, just the way it is). One of the teachers living in the centre will prepare food, so you can also see the local markets, help shopping / learn cooking / see where they get the fresh ingredients to prepare pure vegetarian food for all residents. Some private time to digest, read, walk, or what ever you would like to do is given in the afternoon until the evening yoga class. Residents should attend the morning meditation and 2 yoga classes a day, the rest of the day is pretty free. If you stay over the weekends, saturday and sunday are pretty easy going as well, time to visit the rest of the city, go to a market or just chill in the house, meditate and do your own practice. I was lucky to attend a foot massage workshop on sunday. I could only stay for a week, 2 weeks would have been better, or more. You can also come just for one yoga course or too, without staying in the Center But I recommend you to do so, to properly slow down, disconnect from the stress outside and focus on yoga, health, meditation and resting. ---Ok, here comes the nutshell: Great, friendly, clean, inspiring, fun, professional, ....---- Thanks again to all the good teachers Om shanti
The people here is really nice and helpful, u can even stay here and do meditation and yoga with them.
