The Vision of Lothlorien

Centre Lothlorien has been set up keeping in mind the principles of self-reliance and balancing the ecology of healthy mind and body in sync with nature. The cuisine is vegetarian. We aim to work towards the welfare of the people and society.

Sitadevi Yogendra and Dr Jayadeva Yogendra – Centre Lothlorien is based on the working knowledge garnered at The Yoga Institute. Centre Lothlorien offers many holistic courses in personal and /or creative development.


What do we offer?

We offer Yoga based on the philosophical and practical application of Patanjali’s Ashtanga-Yoga and the Hatha-Yoga tradition, as taught and practised at The Yoga Institute, Mumbai.


With Yoga and Meditation, we operate a progressive, holistic transformation of the body and mind, detoxifying the physical and energetic body and eradicating the negative mental attitudes that are the root cause of our suffering. This transformation path is based on the objective described in the second verse of Patanjali’s Yoga-Sutra: “Yogah Citta Vritti Nirodhah” & “Yoga is the Suspension of Mental Processes.”


This transformation will awaken the qualities always present in us of love, compassion and wisdom. We will also learn to relax and rest the mind and thus make our daily life more purposeful and meaningful.

Centre Lothlorien offers 200 hours residential one month teacher training courses in alliance with the Yoga Institute, Mumbai.
