Our Teachings

The Five Points of Yoga

After closely observing the lifestyles and needs of people in the West, Swami Vishnudevananda noted that the ancient wisdom of Yoga can be synthesized into five basic principles, which can easily be incorporated into our own lifestyles to provide the foundation for healthy living. It is around these five principles that the activities at the Sivananda Yoga Ranch and the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Center NYC are based.

Proper Exercise Sivananda Yoga | 5 Points of Yoga(Asanas)

The asanas not only produce a strong, healthy body, but as exercises in meditation they provide deep and powerful inner benefits.


Proper Breathing Sivananda Yoga | 5 Points of Yoga(Pranayama)

These specific breathing techniques align us with our natural energy, creating physical and mental rejuvenation and promoting optimum health.


Proper Relaxation Sivananda Yoga | 5 Points of Yoga(Savasana)

Yoga teaches three levels of relaxation: physical, mental, and spiritual. Savasana is a vital part of keeping the body, mind, and spirit healthy.
