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. Deborah B October 8, 2017 Rio de Janeiro Chef

AccommodationsThe Sivananda Yoga Resort and Training Center is located amidst the secluded pine forests surrounding Tuyen Lam Lake, close to the hill-station town of Dalat, Vietnam, famed for its moderate climate and scenic beauty. The fresh air and silence of the forest location have moved many to remark on the healing atmosphere.
The location offers opportunities for walking, with several vantage points from which the local countryside can be admired. Regular walks up on the mountainside in the early morning, in time to watch the sunrise, or in the evening enjoy the light of the full moon or for star-gazing, are popular events in our program. On warmer evenings we often enjoy meditation outdoors in the light and warmth of a campfire. Close to our main Yoga hall a classical walking labyrinth provides a place for contemplative walks.
