Sivananda Yoga Center has not to do with Divine Life Society. There isnīt any conection between both. People usually make confuse about it. Althought Swami Vishnu Devananda had created a ashram in Montreal and use the Guruīs name, the Yoga of Syntesis has not to do with the yoga teachs in Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Center.
Hard to believe that one of the greastest Guru's of all time, who illuminated the path of such great teachers as Swami Radha, Swami Satchidananda,
Swami Chitananda,Swami Vishnu, and Swami Krishnananda gets two whole paragraphs. Way to go Yoga Journal.
In Germany there is "Yoga Vidya", based on Swami Sivnaanda's teaching, running more than 60 Yoga Vidya Centers and three big Ashrams, among them Yoga Vidya Meinberg, biggest Yoga Ashram outside India.
Thank you for reminding us of our great yoga heritage. As a Sivananda trained yoga teacher I gain tremendous support and love from being part of this tradition.
Swami Satyananda is also a devotee with many teachers all over the world teaching this style.
