KaivalyaDhama - ICYHC Yog Center
Created by Swami Kuvalayananda for the People of Mumbai
When the work of Swami Kuvalayanandaji to investigate the effects of Yoga in a scientific way became well known, more and more number of people started coming to the institute at Lonavla with a desire to learn Yoga for the purpose of health and healing.
Many amongst them were from Mumbai. As their number grew, they requested Swamiji to open the branch of the institute in Mumbai itself.
In response to these requests the Mumbai branch of the Kaivalyadhama was started on the 6th January, 1932, in the suburbs of Mumbai.
Later on, for a greater convenience of the people, the Health Centre was shifted from the suburb to its present site on Marine Drive.
A substantial donation from Sir Chunilal Mehta, made it possible for the Health Centre to have its own building.
In the memory of Sir Mehta’s son, it was renamed as Ishwardas Chunilal Yogic Health Centre, Kaivalyadhama and was inaugurated as a full-fledge centre on 30th April, 1936.
