"Swami Sivananda of Rishikesh taught Yoga-Vedanta, which came to the West through his many disciples like Satchidananda, Vishnudevananda, Ventakeshananda and Jyotirmayananda. The Sivananda Yoga-Vedanta centers founded by Swami Vishnudevananda teach regular programs on Yoga-Vedanta and with references to Ayurveda as well. I have done many programs with this organization and find it to be the best Yoga training group in the west." -Dr. David Frawley
