Yoga has thrived in India for thousands of years, having been passed down from generation to generation in the spirit of Karma Yoga (selfless service to others). This dynamic force has been the backbone of all activities of the Sivananda Yoga Centres since their foundation 50 years ago.

The Sivananda Yoga Centres and Ashrams are peaceful oases for intensive yoga practice, open to interested people from all walks of life.

There are many fields in which to volunteer:

  • Building and grounds maintenance
  • Kitchen
  • Housekeeping
  • Boutique and reception
  • Teaching assistance
  • Administration (maintaining mailing lists etc.)
  • Transcription, translation and PR projects


This programme is suitable for those who have already completed the TTC and are able to commit to a minimum of one month stay.
