Was a different experience than many other yoga classes. The instructor focused on breathing for the first 20 mins or so, which is unusual. He warmed up a lot, which is great for beginners. The stretches were repetitive and not too strenuous. The reception was awful though. Not only unprofessional but rude. She ignored me when I walked in and... More

By far the best place in Saigon I have been to for yoga and mediation. After a retreat I did in the Dalat center, I kept coming back. Home-like atmosphere, the sweetest people and quality yoga classes and satsang that always make you leave revitalized! The Sivananda Center easily became a peaceful safe haven in hectic Saigon.

I had an amazing 6 days in this center. Staying here was the best decision I could have possibly made. Within the price are included morning meditation, morning yoga class - evening yoga class ,two meals a day and a bed. The perfect way to slow down, regain energy, dive into the world of yoga/meditation and be surrounded by wonderful... More

There is really no other yoga space like it. A Sivananda Yoga centre in this chaotic and frenzied city is truly a blessing. I couldn't be more grateful to be able to stay there whilst visiting Vietnam in early November this year (2014). Besides the awesome and complete system of yoga that is Sivananda Yoga (my first love), the Swami/staff/teachers... More

Located in a safe, quiet side street in District 1, it's a wonderful place to stay. Having stayed for 3 weeks, I have a genuine feel for the practices, philosophical agenda of the Ashram. The staff are knowledgable and warm and friendly. The rooms are clean and comfortable to stay. Wonderful sense of commitment to the education to the resident... More

I spent two weeks there as a residence. Besides the wonderful yoga and meditation experiences, I loved Jayanta's sing, Gang and Saraswati' smiles, and were touched by their kindness. For a cleaner kitchen and bathroom, do your karma yoga and volunteer. The place is nicely located in a quiet neighborhood of the city. There is a good vegetarian restaurant near... More

Where your heart be fulfill and your mind silent. Heart of heart. Just jump to the class, quiet the mind, and relax, and breathing. Then you back to your own true self. No more mass have to wear. You become yourself! I just love that feeling so much!

Sivananda Yoga centre is a special place, it has a natural spirituality that is comforting and nurturing. English speaking and very helpful teachers make this place so welcoming to a shy, middle aged Aussie woman. Thank you all.

I am very grateful for spending one week as a resident at Sivananda yoga centre HCMC in July 2013. This was a great sanctuary from the noisy external and internal life you have when living here, particularly when you are going through seismic changes in life ( as I am). What a great place! The space here is really nice,... More
