Sivananda Yoga Ranch Company Information
- New York
- United States
The Yoga Ranch was founded in 1974 by Swami Vishnudevananda to provide a peaceful retreat structured around a full immersion into Yogic living and nurtured with the natural beauty of the lush mountains. The simple living close to nature quiets the mind and prepares it for meditation and the high thinking of the Vedanta philosophy. Asanas (yoga postures), Pranayama (breathing techniques), vegetarian meals, chanting, and working together in Karma Yoga help complete the Yoga experience. Nestled in the beautiful rolling Catskill Mountains, just 100 miles outside New York City, the Sivananda Yoga Ranch is a peaceful haven where people of all walks of life come together to practice Yoga, meditation, and get in touch with their True, Divine Self. The ranch is 77 acres of hiking trails, the ashram, food forest, vegetable garden, extensive flower gardens and ponds.
