Have a Taste of Community Life
“Yoga is skill in the performance of actions. Yoga brings a message of hope, of joy to the depressed and strength to the weak. It is a perfect practical system of self culture.”
– Swami Sivananda
The Yoga Resort and Training Center is an inspiring community where people come together to practice yoga from all steps of life. They have different skills to offer and work together with love and dedication to build up a rich, heartfelt environment.
In order to feel a part of this dynamic community, we offer to the guests the opportunity to assist in some daily tasks for 1 hour a day. The guests are invited to help cleaning, gardening, kitchen, in the beautification of buildings and the general upkeep.
To sum up, Karma Yoga (selfless service) is an integral part of the richness of your yoga vacation. You will enjoy meaningful new connections and continue satsang at home for a long time.
Additionally, Karma yoga opens the heart and removes the feeling of isolation that comes from the ego. It is a practical path of yoga to find union.

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.
