Ashram De Yoga Sivananda


About This Center


The International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centers is a not-for-profit organization named after Swami Sivananda – one of the most influential spiritual teachers of the 20th century. It was established in 1957 by Swami Vishnudevananda, a close disciple of Swami Sivananda, to practice and teach the ancient yogic knowledge for health, peace, unity in diversity and Self-realization.

Health is wealth, peace of mind Is happiness, Yoga shows the way - Swami Vishnudevananda

Venue Highlights

Ashram de Yoga Sivananda was founded in 2003 as the first Sivananda Ashram in Europe. Its natural setting is very conducive to contemplation and rejuvenation: vast open spaces, breathtaking sunrises and sunsets and century old forests populated with countless species of birds.

We are a monastic congregation recognized by the French government. Our members are fully committed to leading a yogic life style (blending the practice of postures, meditation, mantra chanting and service).

Here people of all demographics from around the world find a holistic (yogic) lifestyle in harmony with nature. People visit on their own, with friends, and as families. The Ashram provides practices to increase resistance to stress and improve physical, emotional and spiritual health allowing us all to face everyday life with new energy and inspiration.

Delicious Vegetarian Meals
Light, nutritious and freshly prepared meals are served at 10am and 6pm, in addition there is a snack of fruits during the day. The meals offered are lacto-vegetarian and almost fully organic. During the summer season, the Ashram gets very good quality organic vegetables from a local producer. We have a permaculture vegetable garden and grow some of our own food and flowers.

The main course at each meal always offers a dairy-free and wheat-free option. That is the extent to which special dietary needs can be catered to during your stay at the ashram. Side dishes, desserts and snacks may contain gluten and dairy.

No meat, fish, alcohol, tobacco, coffee, black tea, eggs, and drugs are allowed. Their use may lead to dismissal from the ashram.
