A Message from the Friends of Sivananda:

Dear Friends, seekers, yogis, and yoginis,

Thank you so much for seeking out the latest on our spiritual home, the Sivananda Ashram Yoga Retreat on Paradise Island in the Bahamas. Due to the Pandemic, we have had to close the Ashram ever since last March.  As you can appreciate, like all small enterprises, we have struggled with the lack of revenue while still facing significant ongoing expenses. 

We hope you can support the ashram through making a donation, whatever is within your means. 

All donations are tax deductible and 100% of the money goes directly to help the ashram pay its bills during this time.
