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.

  • “Health is wealth. Peace of mind is happiness.
    Yoga shows the way.”

    – Swami Vishnudevananda
