About the Yoga Center of Key Biscayne
The Yoga Center of Key Biscayne is an Affiliated Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Center. The Sivananda organization is a nonprofit worldwide network of ashrams and yoga centers founded by Swami Vishnudevananda to spread the teachings of yoga. Swami Vishnu and his master, Swami Sivananda of Rishikesh, India, were instrumental in introducing yoga to the West. Sivananda’s famous instruction was “Serve, Love, Give, Purify, Meditate, Realize.” (See Links at bottom)
The Yoga Center is a serene yoga sanctuary devoted to the health, healing and inner peace of ourselves and our community. We teach and practice in an environment that is wonderfully suited for yoga for people of all ages and paths of life. -From babies to seniors and from beginners to advanced practitioners.

It is also a place where one can study the full range of yogic teachings. In addition to daily yoga classes, we feature special yoga programs, workshops, and concerts. (See Workshops and Events)
Our mission is to propagate the authentic teachings and practices of yoga for the physical, mental and spiritual upliftment of ourselves, our community and all beings.
We teach classical hatha yoga, an ancient technique brought to the West by Swami Vishnudevananda in the 1950s.
Our classes are non-competitive and accessible enough for beginners while more advanced students are encouraged to challenge themselves. This positive, cooperative attitude on the part of the students as well as the teachers characterizes the Yoga Center of Key Biscayne.
Come to discover the countless benefits of yoga. Yoga can build strength while increasing flexibility. People who practice yoga are less stressed and less likely to fall victim to the ailments that accompany stress. Some of them go even deeper, delving into their true nature through meditation.
Whatever your motivation, we hope you enjoy your practice as much as we enjoy sharing the practice of yoga with you. Om Shanti.
