The reason for my first trip to the Sivananda retreat was go on vacation in a place surrounded by paradise. Little did I know, that trip would change my life. Since my first visit, I have traveled back as a vacationer twice and my most recent visit as a karma yogi for 2 months. The friendly staff, beautiful surroundings, and...

Sivananda is one of my favorite places. From the early morning prayers to the peaceful evenings lulled to sleep by the sound of waves, the ashram will envelope you and allow you to learn and grow. I am a novice and felt welcomed and loved. The food is amazing and you leave wanting to stay healthy all year. The beds...

This is my 13 winter at the ashram. I am home when I get off the boat, there is a sense of ease and relaxation. I come for the spiritual recharging I get during satang and daily meditation. Arjuna is a teacher who inspires me to always go within and continue to practice my yoga no matter what... Thank you...

I have visited the Sivananda Ashram Yoga Retreat in the Bahamas four times over the last three years. Anyone who practices yoga would fall in love with this place. The setting on Paradise Island is incredibly beautiful, with white sand beaches, turquoise waters, and beautiful grounds filled with tropical plants. A delicious vegetarian brunch and dinner are served each day....

If you're looking to delve a bit further into the world of yoga this is a good place to start. While being a karma yogi demands almost all of your time and energy while you're a part of the program, Sivananda offers a wonderful space for learning. I wouldn't recommend this if you're looking to hang out on the beach...

This is a magical place. Peaceful, quiet & very soothing. The yoga, meditation, satsang & beach make it a great place to unplug. The speakers are always very interesting. It's not a resort so don't expect that type of accommodations. It's an ashram - simple, pretty rustic, vegetarian food, communal meals, shared bathrooms unless you opt for the beachfront rooms....

I had a wonderful retreat at the Sivananda Yoga Ashram, on Paradise Island, Bahamas, for eleven days. I liked everything about it. Chose one of their tents for my sleeping arrangement.. comes w/ shared gender separate bathrooms. I'm glad I chose that accommodation. It was fun, and a good value. The yoga classes twice a day were excellent, also enjoyed...

This was our second visit, and I would love to come every year. It is an Ashram, not a luxury resort, so be prepared. Expect twice daily Sivananda style classes (progression of practice has little variation), two plentiful and delicious vegetarian meals, twice daily meditation/chanting/teaching, lots of good workshops, a gorgeous beach, beautiful grounds, and people who are mostly friendly...

I came here for my teacher's training in November, my first stay ever at an ashram, and just could not leave this place. It's a refuge for those of us who seek deeper meaning in life and a wonderful place to heal. And then, of course, there's the magnificent beach with the white sand and the crystal clear water, a...
