Following in the lineage of Sri Swami Sivananda Maharaj, Ananda Kutir Ashrama follows his teachings of Integral Yoga. Integral Yoga enables one to lead a balanced, harmonious lifestyle which is conducive to peace of mind and can be practiced by anyone regardless of cultural or religious background. It is not necessary to change one's religion to reach the highest spiritual aims in life. Integral Yoga provides tools that can be practised and experienced by all.
The spiritual lineage of Ananda Kutir begins with the 20th Century Saint H.H. Sri Swami Sivananda Maharaj, who significantly contributed to the world-wide dissemination of Yoga by teaching Integral Yoga.
One of his foremost disciples, Sri Swami Venkatesananda, regularly visited South Africa and it was through his inspiration and guidance that Mother Yogeshwari began teaching Integral Yoga in 1967. In 1982 Sri Yogeshwari together with Swami Parvathiananda and a group of inspired friends formally established Ananda Kutir Ashrama.
The seal in the Ananda Kutir Ashrama logo combines the symbols of all religions into one symbol of unity. Designed by L. Zahn for Swami Venkatesananda.
Yoga is the most ancient and complete system of personal development. It comprises the accumulated wisdom of all mankind.
