Surrounded by natural beauty
You arrive at the ashram on a short 5-minute boat ride from across the bay from Nassau to find yourself in an island paradise of palm trees and tropical flowers.
We are situated between the bay on one side and the Caribbean-blue ocean on the other. You'll spend a lot of time outdoors, nourished by the rich life-force energies of nature.
Yoga for everyone
While you are here, you are encouraged to participate in daily yoga classes. Two-hour Sivananda Yoga classes are offered in the morning and the afternoon, providing everyone with the opportunity to practice.
The classical sequence of Sivananda Yoga is designed to be easily practiced at home and can be adapted to each person's circumstances.
Inspiration beyond your training
The ashram provides a rich tapestry of evening community gatherings that feature presentations with senior ashram staff, leading spiritual teachers, thought leaders, cutting-edge scientists, and inspiring performers. All students experience these as part of their training courses at the ashram.
Unity in diversity
The Sivananda lineage is rooted in the teaching that we are all one and we welcome people from all walks of life, religions, and traditions. The ashram serves as an international gathering place for spiritual exchange and study where people can meet kindred spirits from around the world.
You can change the world
Our mission to bring peace to the world through the teachings of yoga and Vedanta. In the professional trainings and certifications that we offer, students are empowered to awaken inner peace and healing and join the increasing numbers of holistic practitioners who create true change in the world.
Not only did I refresh my energy and revitalize my yoga practise, I learned something from everyone I met. It was incredibly joyous to meet such warm, compassionate and interactive people from all over the world.

This was no doubt one of the most amazing and life changing experiences I have had ... delicious vegetarian food, yoga classes for every level, group meditation, beautiful sunrise walks on the beach and the magical wisdom of all the swamis and people that live or visit the ashram.

The Sivananda land is a perfect lush garden, next to the most beautiful white sand beach. The energy there is simply amazing, the people are so friendly, and the food is healthy and very tasty
