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

I spent six months in Ho Chi Minh City and went to this centre almost every day to practice yoga. The yoga teachers, of which there are many, are very friendly and helpful and most of them even speak English. I learned a lot from the classes. The building is also beautiful and spacious, an oasis in the hectic city... More

I joined 6 Days 5 Nights Sivananda Yoga Vocation @ Cu Chi in February 2013. My body and soul was really rejuvenated. Everyday, we had meditation, chanting, karma yoga and asana classes. All the classes led us to be more peaceful. Plus, we were served with very nice vegetarian dishes which made us feel more pure in body. Moreover, we... More

The glow in the staff faces clearly shows the benefit of yoga. Neat and clean. The Cu Chi experience is... More

I went to a class at the centre during my 3 day trip to Ho Chi Minh City. I was greeted and assisted beautifully and the class was conducted in both English and Vietnamese. I have never done this type of yoga before and found it to be both challenging and enjoyable. The only drawback is the noise from the... More
