Classical hatha yoga in Sivananda Yoga tradition
The practice of traditional classical yoga is a quiet journey that empowers the individual to rediscover the innate peace and bliss already within.
To begin, one does not need to be strong or flexible.
One only needs an open mind to start and stay curious.
No one is too inflexible or too weak to start experiencing the benefits of yoga practice.
In a Sivananda Yoga class, you will practise physical postures, breath work and relaxation. Coupled with a proper diet and positive thinking, these are the five principles that form the foundation of the Sivananda Yoga practice.
Through regular practice, one gains an indirect control of the mind, experiencing more awareness, calm and inner peace.
What is Sivananda Yoga?
Sivananda Yoga asana practice, as taught by Swami Vishnudevananda, relies on a core sequence that includes a balanced set of 12 postures followed in a prescribed order, interspersed with periodic relaxation poses, such as Savasana (Corpse Pose).
Each asana either augments or counterbalances the preceding one. A Sivananda Yoga practice also includes pranayama and opening and closing relaxations. The practice’s intention is to cultivate a meditative mental state that evolves into higher awareness and eventually to experience the innate truth of being.
What you can expect from a regular Sivananda Yoga class:
The 90-minute open class is for regular Sivananda yoga practitioners who are familiar with the sequence of the class. Students will hold longer in the asanas (physical postures) and explore variations of the asanas.
- Anyone who has practised yoga regularly for more than 6 months
- Regular Sivananda Yoga practitioners
- Students who have completed the Sivananda Beginner's Class.

Some of the previous students' reasons for choosing a private class:
Comfort in raising personal questions regarding yoga postures and practice
Anxiety being in a group class

Students share their experiences
"The yoga classes are always something to look forward to. Lipeng is attentive to all the details in every breath and tailors her guidance to help me achieve every pose, and stretch to my fullest!"
"I enjoy how Lipeng explains the essence of each pose and allows one to fully internalise them. It is about self awareness, learning and improvement. Lipeng often takes the extra step to teach us the alternative poses that better suit our bodies. In that way, we get to enjoy the poses within our own limits."
