Swami Sukhananda in Europe

Swami Sukhananda began a tour this winter in London, followed by workshops and courses in Germany, Portugal, and the east coast of England. Sadly, as constraints were introduced across Europe to control the spread of the Coronavirus, all further events and workshops, including those in Cork, Budapest, London, Devon and Suffolk, that were planned for March, April and May, had to be postponed.

Swami Sukhananda returned to Yasodhara Ashram and she will remain there until the time is right for a further tour. She is, however, still in touch with us and, already, some teachers are exploring the possibility of on-line classes and workshops with her. This could open up new opportunities in a different way – best suited to the current situation where so many people are at home to avoid spreading the virus.

If you would like to know more or would like to organize something in your area, or with your friends on-line, please contact Sukhananda by email with your ideas.

Further information:

Through Swami Sukhananda you can experience the authentic ancient teachings of Yoga first-hand. This gentle and intimate, yet profound, approach is unique in our experience. The teachings are brought to life through self-reflection (Svadhyaya) as taught by Swami Sivananda to his closest disciples in the Rishikesh Ashram. They are passed on through Swami Radha to Sukhananda who brings them to you today.

Swami Sukhananda’s workshops are accessible to all sincere seekers and often provide a valuable opportunity for yoga teachers to deepen their own understanding.

An incredible weekend. Thank you for visiting again Swami Sukhananda. I have had wonderful feedback from students. 

I know I speak not only for myself, but for others that we would love you to come back when you next visit if possible.

– Lisa, May 2018 (Gosport)

Thank you for your kind words and for your successful workshop. It became already a tradition, that you come to us every year in Spring time. From year to year it seems to me that we are working together better and better like real team players.

– Omkāra, March 2019 (Budapest)

So glad I made the space to go to Pakefield this weekend. I am returning refreshed and full of gratitude for the transformative power of this teaching.
