AYA has several locations where you can learn traditional yoga from a 'live' teacher.
These locations are of two kinds: AYA proper and affiliates.
These centers are operated by AYA itself.
- Levoča ashram
Retreat ashram for advanced yogis.
- Austin Yoga & Meditation Center
Located in North Austin, TX. Regular classes offered by Sita Chaitanya and occasional workshops by Swami Atma.
The affiliates are yoga teachers trained in the tradition of Swami Sivananda and who are committed to teaching in this classical way.
They function independently but entertain a strong 'spiritual' link with AYA.
