The Sivananda Ashram Yoga Ranch is committed to compassionate sustainable living as part of their spiritual practice. “Peace begins with our compassionate care of all life.” The Sivananda Ashram Yoga Ranch was founded in 1974 by Swami Vishnudevananda of southern India, for the practice of Yoga and the study of Vedanta. It is nestled in the beautiful rolling Catskill Mountains, just 100 miles outside New York City.
Nearly all ponds need management to help keep the habitat, water quality and clarity in a healthy balance. In July 2016, the ranch installed a PondHawk dual diffuser system on the north end of the 1/3 acre oval pond located in the back of the property in Woodbourne, New York. Because PondHawk is not connected to the electric grid, it can be located in even in the most remote pond. Its inconspicuous, quiet and battery-free design, makes PondHawk most ecologically-friendly solution for the pond at the Sivananda Ashram Yoga Ranch.
