Yoga Vacation

Give your life a boost, develop positive thinking, radiant health and inner peace through the practice of ancient yogic techniques for balanced living. The yoga vacation is based on the teachings of Swami Sivananda and Swami Vishnudevananda. It is designed to help you develop a strong practice which can be incorporated back into your daily life at home.

Living in the ashram following a simple, structured daily schedule, allows you to focus on yourself for two weeks (or more!!).

The term vacation usually implies doing nothing, perhaps lying on a beach.

Swami Vishnudevananda adopted the term 'Yoga Vacation' because the structured schedule allows you to relax completely in a way a beach or travel holiday doesn't. All you have to do is be here, relax and participate.
