Interested to learn Yoga? Not the type in Yoga centers, but one which is more down to earth at a spiritual venue. Its not free though, RM100 for adults. Then have attended it before, and found it to be useful. Only problem is that is in Batu Caves, so may have to brave the traffic on Saturday afternoons.


Their Pamphlet

The excerpt from email I received below gives more details:

The Divine Life Society (DLS) Batu Caves conducts Hatha Yoga classes based on Swami Sivananda’s teachings. The next intake for beginners and intermediate is on 3rd October 2009. This is a 3 months course, conducted every Saturday from 3:45 pm to 5:00 pm at Yoga Block, Sivananda Ashram, THE DIVINE LIFE SOCIETY, Batu Caves, Selangor.

DLS is a charitable organization. One of our primary objectives are to disseminate spiritual knowledge to members of the public. Hence, for the 3 months yoga course – the fee is RM100 for adults and RM50 for students. Any poor students or adults who are unable to afford, we will waive their fee. Since our yoga fee is one of the cheapest in Klang Valley, many Chinese people grab this opportunity and attend our yoga classes. In fact, three quarter of our yoga students are non-Hindus. We are really not sure why the Hindus are not keen in learning Yoga. Many Hindus mis-interpret that Yoga is another form of exercise only. Yes it is an exercise, but there are many benefits in Yoga. In Yogic exercises, there is harmonious development of all the muscles of the body, internal organs, nerves and the frame. There are no rapid movements, hence there is no waste of energy. In Yoga, exercise movements are gentle and rhythmic, so energy is conserved. Kindly visit our Yoga Blog @ to gain more information on Yoga.

Thus, we would like to request your kind support to assist us to promote Hatha Yoga among your friends (especially Hindus) and relatives in Klang Valley. Attached is the Yoga New Intake poster for your distribution. If you would like to add our yoga blog link in your website, we would be very grateful.

Important Note: Yoga Asanas to be practiced by young people after twelve years of age, and not before. Hence, we do not accept students below twelve years of age.

Thanking you in advance for your support.

In service of Gurudev,

Prema Naidu
