Welcome to the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Chennai Centre. We offer many courses in yoga and meditation for the beginner, intermediate as well as for the advanced practitioner. We follow the ancient discipline of yoga practice as taught by founder Swami Vishnudevananda, one of the foremost disciples of Sri Swami Sivananda of Rishikesh.
In 1989 the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre in Chennai was opened as part of the International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centres (ISYVC), a non-profit organization. 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'.
The Five Points of Yoga include:
1. Proper Exercise - Asanas
2. Proper Breathing - Pranayama
3. Proper Relaxation - Savasana
4. Proper Diet - Whole Food Plant Based
5. Positive Thinking & Meditation - Vedanta & Dhyana
