Dear SF Yoga Community,

The Sivananda Yoga Center is mindful of concerns over the COVID-19 (coronavirus) and is taking steps to keep the Center clean and safe:
• All restrooms are cleaned daily and all surfaces are disinfected
• All classrooms are cleaned daily
• Mats and blankets are washed regularly
• Teachers and staff wash their hands as often as possible
• We have hand sanitizer available for regular use
• We have temporarily suspended the use of hands on adjustments

For everyone’s safety, we ask you to please:
• Wash your hands thoroughly before and after attending class
• Respect those who prefer not to shake hands or embrace
• Bring your own mat, eye pillow, or any other prop
• Wipe your mat before and after using it
• Ideally, cough or sneeze into a disposable tissue, discard and wash hands. At minimum, turn away and cover your nose or mouth with your arm.
• Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands
• Stay at home if you are coughing and/or do not feel well
• Keep your immune system strong by practicing Yoga and managing stress

Om Shanti,
Swami Adi Parashaktiananda

A moment of peace to start the week. Something special to look forward to at the end of a working day. Something for you only, a time to reflect, outside of current space and time. A journey, which brings the satisfaction of building towards a healthier body, a better self.


Sivananda is a truly special place. A gem in San Francisco. The class teaching is in a small and personalized setting which is absolutely wonderful.
