Find Lasting Peace Through Yoga

Classical yoga provides spiritual inspiration and answers life’s deepest questions. Through classes, courses, workshops, cultural programs and outreach, we offer a variety of holistic practices for all ages, not limited by physical ability. These include physical postures, breathing techniques, proper diet, conscious relaxation, chanting  and meditation.

• Ancient wisdom passed directly through a lineage

• Inquiry into the nature of the mind and emotions

• Support for all aspects of a balanced lifestyle and healthy relationships



Mark your calendar for the official Grand Re-Opening of the Center! Sunday, May 3 and Monday, May 4, 2015.

Also keep June 21, 2015 free for the all-day festivities for the inaugural International Day of Yoga.

we need your support

Renovations are in full swing and will continue for the next few months. We welcome donations toward those costs. We will also post a wish list on our website. A series of project-specific Karma Yoga Parties are being scheduled for the community to join. Please email us if you can help (sanfrancisco@sivananda.org). We rely on and remain grateful for your generosity of heart!

May the grace of the gurus bless us in this endeavor. Om shanti.

We are now open for a limited schedule of asana classes and Satsangs. Due to upcoming renovations, we will need to adjust the schedule from time to time to avoid excessive noise or unsafe conditions. We appreciate your patience during this process. Please check back often.

new location

After 30 years at 1200 Arguello, we have relocated to 1185 Vicente Street, Parkside/Outer Sunset, near Stern Grove, three miles from the old Center, two blocks from the L Taraval Muni line and four blocks from 19th Ave. The main asana room is large and beautiful, with oak floors and a high ceiling. There is a second classroom, which will also serve as an Ayurveda treatment room. A full kitchen is centrally located. There is a modest mezzanine that will house a work area and sleeping quarters for two staff. We will offer a regular schedule of open asana classes (including beginner, advanced, gentle and a weekly class for children), meals, courses, workshops, concerts and events to support your complete yoga lifestyle. We will also offer Ayurveda talks, consultations and treatments. Be on the lookout for more in-depth courses that qualify toward the Yoga Farm’s yoga therapy certification program.
