The Ho Chi Minh Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Center, part of the Inernational Sivananda Yoga Centers, was established in 2011 by Swami Sitaramananda and the dedicated Vietnamese volunteer staff. They started as a small center with just 2 rooms in what used to be a tea house. Many students started coming and they had the need for expanding. In 2013 they moved the center just down the street to a much larger building with more opportunity for growth. They have just finished installing a 4th floor yoga room and now have 3 large spaces to hold yoga classes and workshops. The dedicated staff teach four to five daily yoga classes, along with workshops and courses. Residency is also available for 2 weeks to 3 months. See a photo gallery of the center.
We are mainly teaching the 5 Points of Yoga for good health and well-being. The 5 points are Proper Exercise, Proper Breathing, Proper Relaxation, Proper Diet, Positive Thinking and Meditation.
