"Health is wealth,
Peace of mind is happiness,
Yoga shows the way."
~ Swami Vishnudevananda
The 5 points of yoga
According to classical yoga teachings
Swami Vishnudevananda summarised the wisdom of yoga in five basic principles which promote physical, mental and spiritual health.
Proper exercise (Asanas)
Yoga asanas enhance the flexibility of the joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments and stimulate circulation. Flexibility and strength of the spine keep the body youthful.
Proper breathing (Pranayama)
Yogic breathing connects the body to its battery, the solar plexus, which is an enormous storehouse of energy. Stress and depression can be overcome by breathing more deeply and with increased awareness.
Proper diet (vegetarian)
A vegetarian diet is healthy, natural and simple to prepare. It is digestible and easy for the body to absorb. It consists in proper food choices which have the most positive effect on body and mind, at the same time causing the least harm to other living beings and the environment.

The Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Retreat House
The Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Retreat House is located on the southern slope above the small village of Reith, in the middle of the picturesque Tyrolean Alps.
Kitzbühel, the legendary sports city in the Alps, is only four kilometers away. The traditional town has developed into one of the most famous winter sports locations in the world over the past hundred years.
