Our yogic health centre is commonly known as only 'Kaivalyadhama' by locals. It is a small bungalow facing the sea at Marine Drive - a beautiful location in Mumbai. It is a serene space, ideal for people to come and practice their yogic kriyas and pranayama on a daily basis. A trained teacher is present for every session to consult with and who can spot any mistakes you might be making.
Yoga is essential for spiritual advancement but its necessary that the body and mind are healthy. In order to achieve this, yoga has many physical and mental exercises which improve efficiency of the body and mind for the practising individual.
Swami Kuvalayananda founded the Kaivalyadhama institution in Pune in 1924 mainly to research the effects of yoga and provide scientific training on how yoga can be used for this health and healing. This Mumbai centre was established in 1936 and now has over 4500 members coming to the centre yearly for health reasons and often also to cure some particular illnesses.
In order to become a member, one has to first consult a medical doctor trained in yogic therapy. This doctor would prescribe an appropriate programme for you which includes kriya, pranayama, asanas and meditation. This programme is then taught by our trained teachers on an individual basis and over a period of time depending on how well you can grasp the practices. There are periodic examinations by the yogic doctor to modify and better the programme so that it has the most effect.
There are daily (except Sundays and public holidays) yoga sessions with the yoga teacher at the following times:
- Men: 6.30 am to 10.00 am & 5.00 pm to 8.00 pm
- Women: 7.00 am to 10.00 am & 4.00 pm to 7.00 pm
Separate facilities are provided for Men and Women.
Apart from daily yoga sessions we are now offering ayurvedic treatments and massages. We also have workshops on various health related topics like obesity, naturopathy, pranayama, etc. These workshops are for a few days and happen throughout the year. You can know more by contacting us.
