On our last full morning in HCMC my partner and I wanted to try out a yoga class in Vietnam. This did not disappoint and was great value for the money. We walked there from our hotel so were already quite hot and worried this would make the class even harder! We were the only people there that weren't either... More

I've never done Sivananda asana yoga before so it was a bit of an adjustment, but I enjoyed it! I got a few hands-on adjusts, and even though there wasn't much instruction from the teachers, it was simple enough to just follow along by watching everyone else. The evening satsang was really lovely. The space just felt so warm and... More

I was a resident of HCMC-center for two weeks. The place is clean and neat, though not high standard, the vegan food is a little tasteless after a time, since they don't use much seasoning or herbs. A pity. The center offers plenty of yoga classes that can be attended by desire. The physical yoga is not particularly challenging and... More

Was a different experience than many other yoga classes. The instructor focused on breathing for the first 20 mins or so, which is unusual. He warmed up a lot, which is great for beginners. The stretches were repetitive and not too strenuous. The reception was awful though. Not only unprofessional but rude. She ignored me when I walked in and... More

As a Sivananda teacher (living in the USA and certified in Canada) I was eager to check out the center in Saigon. I attended a morning class with my 11-year old daughter in July of 2015 and it was great. The woman who taught our class spoke excellent english so we were never left wondering what to do - in...

By far the best place in Saigon I have been to for yoga and mediation. After a retreat I did in the Dalat center, I kept coming back. Home-like atmosphere, the sweetest people and quality yoga classes and satsang that always make you leave revitalized! The Sivananda Center easily became a peaceful safe haven in hectic Saigon.

I had an amazing 6 days in this center. Staying here was the best decision I could have possibly made. Within the price are included morning meditation, morning yoga class - evening yoga class ,two meals a day and a bed. The perfect way to slow down, regain energy, dive into the world of yoga/meditation and be surrounded by wonderful... More

There is really no other yoga space like it. A Sivananda Yoga centre in this chaotic and frenzied city is truly a blessing. I couldn't be more grateful to be able to stay there whilst visiting Vietnam in early November this year (2014). Besides the awesome and complete system of yoga that is Sivananda Yoga (my first love), the Swami/staff/teachers... More

Located in a safe, quiet side street in District 1, it's a wonderful place to stay. Having stayed for 3 weeks, I have a genuine feel for the practices, philosophical agenda of the Ashram. The staff are knowledgable and warm and friendly. The rooms are clean and comfortable to stay. Wonderful sense of commitment to the education to the resident... More

I spent two weeks there as a residence. Besides the wonderful yoga and meditation experiences, I loved Jayanta's sing, Gang and Saraswati' smiles, and were touched by their kindness. For a cleaner kitchen and bathroom, do your karma yoga and volunteer. The place is nicely located in a quiet neighborhood of the city. There is a good vegetarian restaurant near... More
