I wasn't sure what to expect when I arrived at Sivananda, but overall it was a good experience. I went to the yoga classes everyday. One teacher I enjoyed was Vashista, this older man whom unlike any teacher I had before, had an amazing presence about him. He made me feel confident in class. I went alone to the ashram, but most people do. Its safe and comfortable. I stayed for 10 days. I would go for at least 5 days to truly relax. Share your good karma, transform your bad karma, and some karma yoga in the kitchen will help.
They perform rituals at the ashram. I am a practicing Buddhist and it was nice to see things from a different perspective. This is a very special place. Come with an open mind and an appetite for connecting with yourself and the divine, as well as some very delicious food!
