Sivananda Classes Held Daily

What is Yoga?  Yoga means union of the mind, body and spirit with the Divine and while this refers to a certain state of conciousness both individual and Universal, it is also a method to help one reach that goal.

We teach a traditional, exact and easy-to-learn system that aims at naturally achieving the goal through creating a healthy body and mind that leads to spiritual evolvement.

Based in the teachings of Swami SivanandaSwami Vishnudevananda summarized the yoga philosophy in 5 principles or the Five Points of Yoga which make the complex teachings of yoga easier to understand.

"Thank you so much for creating such a perfect, welcoming and healing place in such a beautiful location. The perfect inspiration for our entire trip. You changed my life for the better and I will never forget this experience." Beth 


"I stayed at Monte Vista Retreat for a month as a volunteer. It was one of the most rewarding months of my life. The environment is breathtaking, and it is the ideal location for clearing the mind, and living in peace." Marirose


"This was a trip into the unknown for me, but can honestly say coming here was one of the best decisions I have ever made." Beeper



"I stayed 10 days and did the 9 day detox which was very rewarding and though it was a challenge, Jackie and Andy, the hosts are clearly very experienced and I felt in safe hands for the whole of it. With their patience and support you could be involved as much or as little as you wanted to. Food is social and served with one of the best views of the ocean I've ever seen." Bella


"When I got to Monte Vista I wasn't sure what to expect but one thing is for sure I really needed what was waiting for me there! I've learned so much about my self and life, this have definitely been a bless and a gift for my body and soul!" Missy
