The ashram de Yoga Sivananda

At the ashram de yoga Sivananda, we are fully committed to leading a yogic lifestyle (blending the practice of postures, meditation, mantra chanting and service). This haven of peace just one hour from Paris welcomes people seeking a healthy and balanced life style and who want to develop a spiritual and positive vision of life based on the teachings of Swami Sivananda. Its natural setting is very conducive to contemplation and rejuvenation: vast open spaces, old forests with century old trees populated with countless species of birds, breathtaking sunrises and sunsets.

Our Teachings

The Five Points of Yoga

After closely observing the lifestyles and needs of people in the West, Swami Vishnudevananda, the founder of Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centres, noted that the ancient wisdom of Yoga can be synthesized into five basic principles, which can easily be incorporated into our own lifestyles to provide the foundation for healthy living. It is around these five principles that the activities at the Ashram De Yoga Sivananda are based.


Proper Exercise Sivananda Yoga | 5 Points of Yoga(Asanas)

Enhances the flexibility of the joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments and stimulates circulation. Flexibility and strength of the spine keep the body youthful.


Proper Breathing Sivananda Yoga | 5 Points of Yoga(Pranayama)

Connects the body to its battery, the solar plexus, which is an storehouse of energy. Stress and depression can be overcome by breathing more deeply with increased awareness.


Proper Relaxation Sivananda Yoga | 5 Points of Yoga(Savasana)

Relieves the body of existing stress symptoms (including muscle tension and breathlessness) and also helps develop resistance against external stress factors. Once body and mind are freed from constant overload they are at ease and perform more efficiently.

Sivananda Yoga | 5 Points of YogaProper Diet (Vegetarian)

Promotes health and has a positive effect on body and mind. It is natural, simple to prepare, easy to digest and absorb. It is based on proper food choices and causes the least harm to other living beings and the environment.


Sivananda Yoga | 5 Points of YogaPositive Thinking and Meditation (Vedanta and Dhyana)

Eliminates negative thought patterns and provides an experience of inner peace by controlling the mind through meditation. This is the key to peace of mind.
