Experience the power of a traditional yoga class. Your first class is FREE.
If you are a beginner or new to Sivananda, we suggest that you attend an Open House and join a beginner's course, which offers individual guidance and an understanding of the benefits of yoga practice.
Our goal is to bring physical, mental and spiritual well-being to all through the rich teachings of traditional, classical hatha yoga and vedanta.
We offer small classes, individual attention a gentle approach for beginners, qualified Sivananda yoga teachers and quiet sanctuary away from life's stresses.
Navaratri starts on Thursday September 25 and ends on Saturday October 4.
We celebrate the female aspect of the divine for nine consecutive nights in late fall. She is the universal mother, the creative aspect of the Absolute. She brings balance. The first three nights are dedicated to Durga, who, wielding her powerful weapons, can destroy our impurities and vices. For the next three nights, we worship Lakshmi who bestows spiritual wealth. The final three nights we praise Saraswati, goddess of wisdom. The daily puja follows the final class of the evening. At 6:00 on the morning of the tenth day, the festival culminates with Vijayadasami, a lavish puja and blessing of our "instruments of karma." We bring laptops, musical instruments, photos, notebooks—anything that represents what we do in life. All these are worshipped as the Devi herself.
The Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Center is a volunteer-based non-profit 501(c)(3) organization teaching classical yoga for health and peace of mind in Los Angeles for over 40 years.
