Since 1968 Sivananda Ashram Yoga Retreat has been a leading destination for world-class yoga training.
Located located across the bay from Nassau, Bahamas, on one of the finest beaches in the world, it is truly an island paradise and a sanctuary of peace and natural beauty. With its pristine white sand beaches, crystal blue waters, and five and a half acres of lush tropical gardens, the Sivananda Ashram Yoga Retreat provides the ideal environment for practice, rest, and rejuvenation.
And yet the power of yoga is such that it is not necessary to travel to The Bahamas to experience deeper peace and contentment.
Now, through the use of technology, you can gain the knowledge, and experience the profound transmission of this ancient lineage, from the comfort of your own home.
Sivananda Ashram Yoga Retreat has the experience you can trust to provide you with the most comprehensive yoga education available anywhere.
Our essential courses and trainings are taught by people who have renounced the world and dedicated themselves to a life of service to humanity. These are the Swamis and Brahmacharis who have taken vows and live full-time at the ashram where they engage in intense sadhana (spiritual practice) and work tirelessly to keep the ashram functioning in all departments. What they teach comes not only from a theoretical place but from the experience gathered from living a traditional yogic lifestyle each and every day.
The ashram also benefits from the contributions of countless world-renowned teachers, scholars, scientists, artists, and healers.
In addition to the wealth of knowledge in classical yoga accumulated through the lineage of Swami Vishnudevananda and his master Swami Sivananda, the ashram hosts hundreds of guest presenters every year to expand horizons and discover unity in diversity.
We invite you to experience the grace of this traditional yoga lineage by participating in our online programs and hope you become part of our mission to bring peace to the world.
