Sivananda Yoga is a classical and holistic approach to Hatha Yoga that stretches and tones the whole body. This style of yoga has not been modified or watered down. The teachings have survived intact and are practiced as originally presented in India by Swami Sivananda in 1936.
Swami Sivananda's teachings can be summed up in five words: "Serve, love, give, purify, meditate, realize." This form of yoga provides numerous health benefits and a strong base for a spiritual practice.
There is a great deal of deep relaxation involved, which not only feels great, but helps our bodies heal and integrate the newly acquired strength and flexibility.
This form of yoga is accessible to people of all ages and stages of mobility! If you can breathe, you can practice Classical Yoga!
