Welcome to the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Trivandrum Centre.
We offer many courses in Yoga and Meditation for the Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced practitioner.We follow the ancient discipline of yoga practise as taught by Sri Swami Vishnudevananda our founder, one of the foremost disciples of Sri Swami Sivananda of Rishikesh. One of the great yoga masters of twentieth-century India.
The Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre has been teaching yoga in Trivandrum since 1987. Since then we have, through the grace of our gurus been able to propogate the teaching of yoga to the community. We are centrally located within the city, behind the Padmanabhaswamy Temple in West Fort. The Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre is a part of the International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centres (ISYVC), a non-profit organization run by voluntary staff and dedicated to the aim of disseminating the knowledge of yoga.
Swami Vishnudevananda synthesized the ancient wisdom of yoga into five basic principles that could easily be incorporated into one's daily lifestyle to provide the foundation for healthy living. The teachings at the Centre are based around these 'Five Points of Yoga'.
