Sivananda Ashram Yoga Retreat Bahamas

The Sivananda Yoga Retreat provides an immersion experience into the daily practices of a yogic lifestyle. More than just a yoga center, the Yoga Retreat offers teachings derived from the deeply-rooted Hatha Yoga traditions of a renowned lineage. All of the Ashram practices are geared toward the development of inner peace for a more harmonious world.


Established by Swami Vishnudevananda in the name of Master Swami Sivananda, the Ashram presents a balanced experience of Raja Yoga, Karma Yoga, Bhakti Yoga and Jnana Yoga. The daily schedule includes meditation, pranayama (yogic breathing practices), asana (yoga postures) and study.


There is a variety of options for your stay or Yoga Vacation. Our most popular Yoga Programs include:


Yoga Teacher Training


The Yoga Certification Course is recommended for yoga practitioners of all levels who aspire to learn how to become a yoga instructor, bring the joy of yoga to others, or deepen their own yoga practice.
