Sivan&a yoga was developed by Swami Sivan&a & brought to the west by Swami Vishnu-devan&a, who wrote one of the contemporary yoga classics "The complete illustrated book of yoga". His book was first published in 1960 & is still one of the best introductions to yoga available today.
This style of yoga is a classical structured yoga which uses a combination of relaxation, breathing & postures. It also puts importance on diet, positive thinking & meditation. Sivan&a yoga consists of twelve basic yoga poses, designed to increase strength & flexibility & to improve the sitting position for longer meditations. These poses are practised in a sequence, stimulating energy centers in the body from the head down. The twelve basic poses are covered in a beginner's class. As the student advances, variations of the twelve poses are covered as well as more advanced breathing techniques. Sivan&a yoga is quite a dynamic yoga giving the body a complete workout with short relaxations between poses.
