This ashram is a very good place to experience yogic lifestyle. for me it was a very calm place, with good food (So good that i'm a vegetarian ever since i came back!), people, teachers, beach, weather... before i came there, i was practicing yoga once a week, and knew only about asana yoga. now i deeply understand what yoga...

This was my first trip to the yoga retreat, where I did the yoga teacher's training course. I learned so much in that month....not just about yoga and meditation, but about myself. The teachers there are fantastic. They really practice the teachings, and it is a very classical approach to yoga--none of the new-agey stuff you see in some places.... More

Last February I went for a two weeks yoga vacation at the Sivananda Ashram Yoga Retreat in Nassau Bahamas Paradise Island. The atmosphere at the Ashram is wonderful, and it is located right by the beach. The Ashram offers morning and evening satasangs (meditation, chanting and lecture), morning and afternoon yoga classes, different workshops, concerts and inspiring lectures from different... More

The beach is gorgeous and the speakers are very good but the accommodations are lacking. I have been to numerous yoga retreats so I am familiar with simple accommodations. This was not just simple it was dumpy. The bathrooms are gross and shared by too many people. It would not take a lot to make the place nicer. They bring... More

I have been at the Ashram quite a few times, before the Israeli Swami took over and I do see a bunch of changes before he arrived and after. First before they were more generous no doubt now they charge you for everything even the mat!!! At the same time, before it was not as organized as it is now.... More

If you do your research and are honest with yourself about where you're headed, it is impossible to leave the place unchanged. I was there over Christmas. The food was excellent, the yoga classes great (love the option of levels depending on how I was feeling I could do intermediate or beginner), the atmosphere is incredible. My "tent" room was...

The ashram was great for what I needed; a getaway with no distractions to clear my head. The food was delicious, it's right on the beach and people are friendly. The one thing that drove me nuts was that the bathrooms were filthy. I know it's an ashram (I'm Hindu so I'm quite familiar with the concept) but still it... More

I needed a place to get away on short notice and my requirements were simple - reasonably priced and warmth plus either yoga or meditation. This was the first place I found. I was there 9 days and found the experience to be what I needed. The yoga was strenuous with 2 classes a day. There could have been more... More
