Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Center

In the Heart of NYC

Tucked away in a traditional NYC brownstone on West 24th Street, the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Center has been serving the city’s Yoga community since 1964. Run by a volunteer staff and dedicated to the aim of sharing the knowledge of Yoga with all who come, the center offers not only drop-in classes for all levels but also various workshops and courses on everything from beginner Yoga to Yogic philosophy, along with many others. The center is the perfect place to take a break from a busy NYC lifestyle to find peace and joy in the classical Yoga teachings.

Our Teachings

The Five Points of Yoga

After closely observing the lifestyles and needs of people in the West, Swami Vishnudevananda 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 Sivananda Yoga Ranch and the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Center NYC are based.
