Sivananda yoga is based upon five principles, proper exercise (12 poses in particular), proper breathing, proper relaxation, proper diet, and positive thinking and meditation. The focus of Sivananda Yoga is preserving health and wellness, and relative to other styles of yoga has an emphasis on frequent relaxation and breathing.
The first Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Center was founded in 1957 by Swami Vishnu-Devananda, a disciple of Swami Sivananda. There are now close to 80 locations worldwide, including several ashram retreats.
