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. Sivananda Yoga is an international practice which follows the same format worldwide.
Sivananda Yoga is a complete healing system designed to help the body maintain a natural healthy state. It was developed by Vishnu-Devananda who wrote one of the contemporary Yoga classics, "The Complete Illustrated Book of Yoga," first published in 1960 and still one of the best introductions to yoga available. Sivananda training involves frequent relaxation and emphasizes full, yogic breathing.
