    Sivananda Yoga

    Sivananda Yoga Vietnam is part of the International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Organization in more than 30 countries. There are 9 ashrams and more then 30 city centers on every continent from North America, South America, Europe, and Asia. The 5 points of yoga for health and well-being is the main teaching of the Sivananda Centers and the 4 paths of yoga are the synthesis of all the different yoga teachings. The basic Sivananda yoga class is the Hatha yoga class consisting of asanas and pranayama that is taught by the same system in all the Sivananda Yoga centers around the world. Sivananda Yoga Resort and Training Center is a year-round classical yoga retreat and training center for yoga students, practitioners, spiritual seekers, and those looking for a healthier way of life with more meaning.

    Health and well-being 5 points of yoga:

    Proper exercise (asana)

    The asanas (physical yoga postures) ensure the health of the internal body systems and the flexibility of the spine. Asanas renew and energize the body and mind, improve concentration, help to release blocked mental energy and negative emotions, and promote a feeling of connection and self-awareness. Yoga is traditionally considered more than physical exercise because it’s benefits are not only physical, but also mental, emotional and spiritual.

    Proper breathing (pranayama)

    Breath is to the body what a battery is to a car. It gives us oxygen, most needed for our cells, but also gives us prana, or vital energy. Pranayama, or yogic breathing exercises increases, balances and purifies our energy system and awakens higher energy. Learning how to breath correctly allows the body and mind to move into stillness and facilitates meditation practice.

    Proper relaxation (savasana)

    Yogic relaxation removes fatigue, relaxes the mind, and reminds you of your purpose in life. Many of us today suffer from fatigue and tension which we don't know how to release. We spend more energy keeping muscles in continuous readiness for work than in actually working usefully. We dissipate vital energy in anger, fear and negative emotions. Tiredness accumulates on a physical, mental and spiritual level, draining us of joy in our everyday lives. The deep cause of stress is existential coming from the underlying questions - who am I? What is my purpose here? What is the meaning of life?

    Proper diet (vegetarian)

    Food is the fuel for the body. Yoga is concerned with the subtle effect food has on the serenity of the mind and the keenness of the intellect, as well as the health of the body. The yogic diet is sattvic - stable pure focused energy, calm, balanced, lively. The aim of yoga is to increase sattvic energy in our being by choosing sattvic foods hence, the yogic diet is a vegetarian one, consisting of pure, simple natural foods which are easily digested and promote health.

    Positive thinking and meditation

    A car may have a new battery, a smoothly functioning cooling system, perfectly lubricated parts and a full gas tank. However, without a driver in full control of his/her senses and a road map to their destination, the vehicle is useless. Positive thinking and meditation allow us to assume the role of this driver in order to make full use of the physical body. Positive thinking begins with understanding the mind by examining the nature of our thoughts. We choose thoughts for maximum happiness and effectiveness. Positive thinking is the preparation for meditation.
