Sivananda yoga was developed by Swami Sivananda and brought to the west by Swami Vishnu-devananda, who wrote one of the contemporary yoga classics ?The complete illustrated book of yoga?. His book was first published in 1960 and is still one of the best introductions to yoga available today.
This style of yoga is a classical structured yoga which uses a combination of relaxation, breathing and postures. It also puts importance on diet, positive thinking and meditation. Sivananda yoga consists of twelve basic yoga poses, designed to increase strength and flexibility and to improve the sitting position for longer meditations. These poses are practised in a sequence, stimulating energy centers in the body from the head down. The twelve basic poses are covered in a beginner?s class. As the student advances, variations of the twelve poses are covered as well as more advanced breathing techniques. Sivananda yoga is quite a dynamic yoga giving the body a complete workout with short relaxations between poses.
