About Us

The Vishnu-devananda Yoga Vedanta Center is a spiritual home dedicated to the practice and teaching of the various aspects of yoga and Vedanta philosophy for enhancing physical and mental balance, developing inner peace, and Self-realization. We are affiliated with the International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centers which was founded by our late Master, Swami Vishnu-devananda, a world-renown yoga master and peace activist. Founded in May 2001, the center offers classical yoga, meditation, and Vedanta philosophy classes and intensives in Fremont, as well as annual retreats in the Himalayas, North India. Our classes follow a classical approach (Sivananda tradition) and are taught in the spirit of Karma Yoga, or selfless service.

As a spiritual center, our major goal is spiritual practice and service. Our yoga courses and day-long retreats are offered on a donation basis. Although we list the expected donations for some of our courses, those who are unable to afford these amounts are welcome to join these on a donation basis as well.

No one will be turned away for lack of funds
