Workshops with Swami Sukhananda
Swami Sukhananda Online
Swami Sukhananda returned to Yasodhara Ashram in March at the start of the pandemic and will remain there until the time is right for a further European tour. She is, however, still in touch with us and available for on-line classes and workshops on request. 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.
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.
