THE FIVE POINTS OF YOGA
After closely observing the lifestyles and needs of people in the West, Swami Vishnudevananda, the founder of Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centres, synthesized the ancient wisdom of Yoga into five basic principles, which can easily be incorporated into our own lifestyles to provide a solid foundation for healthy living. Activities at the Yoga Resort are based around these five principles.
1. Proper Exercise (Asanas)
Enhances the flexibility of the joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments and stimulates circulation. Flexibility and strength of the spine keep the body youthful.
4. Proper Diet (Vegetarian)
Promotes health and has a positive effect on body and mind. It is natural, simple to prepare, easy to digest and absorb. It is based on proper food choices and causes the least harm to other living beings and the environment.
2. Proper Breathing (Pranayama)
Connects the body to its battery, the solar plexus, which is a storehouse of energy. Stress and depression can be overcome by breathing more deeply with increased awareness.
3. Proper Relaxation (Savasana)
Relieves the body of existing stress symptoms (including muscle tension and breathlessness) and also helps develop resistance against external stress factors. Once body and mind are freed from constant overload, they are at ease and perform more efficiently.
5. Positive Thinking and Meditation
Eliminates negative thought patterns and provides an experience of inner peace by controlling the mind through meditation. This is the key to peace of mind.

LIVE CLOSE TO NATURE
The nature, the prana (energy), the staff and the knowledge available here cannot be described in words as words have too little power to convey the whole. This is where one has to come and to experience to believe that such a great place does actually exist.

Ceo 4U Tour
I went to the Sivananda Ashram in Dalat with the intention to cement my meditation practice. What I got was a lot more. With the help from the staff I discovered an inclination for selfless service and attained tools to be affirmative with my mind. I learned about how the mind works, how I work and got deeper into my yoga practice. After a week, I decided to go back. The food is delicious, the space is amazing, the people are amazing.

Peaceful and beautiful place, with real yogi life My experience was fantastic. I was able to learn a lot about theory, meditation and Asana practice. People were very kind, helpful and keen to share knowledge. The training center is located in a gorgeous area in the mountains of Da Lat. The food was also great. I can’t wait to come back and my daily life has changed with the new things I learnt there.
