The Sivananda Yoga Video DVD

 

The Sivananda Yoga Video is a classic one-hour, how-to film that works for beginners and experts alike. Filmed over 30 years ago on Paradise Island in the Bahamas, amazing footage and nature scenes become the backdrop for learning about hatha yoga and the well-being that the process offers to those willing to try and those continuing to learn. (See trailer below).

Vishnudevananda Saraswati (1927-1993) became a monk at the Sivananda Ashram in India in 1947, where he trained hundreds in Indians and Western students.  His passion for study led to his realization and understanding of many ancient practices and forms, claiming that the hidden knowledge had returned to him from past lives. In 1961 he imigrated to Montreal, Canada and founded the first Sivananda Vedanta Center. Today there are 19 centers and locations around the world making Sivananda one of the largest training bodies of yoga teachers in the world… producing nearly 40,000 graduates!

A few friends from along the way...

Vishnudevananda condensed the teachings of classical yoga into five principles: proper exercise, proper breathing, proper relaxation, proper diet (vegetarian), and meditation and positive thinking.

 

The Sivananda Yoga Video DVD $250.00 includes all academic, classroom and closed campus streaming rights.

Producer’s note: It was 1986 when I first met Vushnudevananda in Montreal. My partner on the film was famed cinematographer Richard Francis. Thirty years ago, yoga was just coming into its own as an exercise form in the United States (We were way ahead of our time).

We took the crew to Paradise Island to shoot the film on a budget that allowed for ten days of shooting. The crew was still shooting 20 days later when I had to return to Paradise Island and beg them to return to New York! Richard always waited for the perfect sunrise or sunset to get the “right shot”. That’s why it took so long, and tripled the size of the budget.
