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.

Tour November 2022 – Spring 2023 – Dates agreed so far

Nordsee. Germany – 18 – 23  December 2022

Wie kannst du im Mitgefühl bleiben, wenn die Welt um uns herum scheinbar das Gegenteil von uns fordert? Es braucht Herzenswärme und die Bereitschaft, Mitgefühl zu haben, mit sich, seinen Lieben und der Welt um uns.  Erlebe das Geschenk eines offenen Herzens mithilfe der verborgenen Sprache der Hatha Yoga Asanas, deiner Vorstellungskraft, durch Meditation und deinem inneren Feuer der Liebe.


How can you be compassionate when the world seems to bring out the opposite? Deepen your understanding of yourself and others so that care and compassion can grow. Experience the gift of an open heart through Yoga asanas and reflection: can ignite the fire of your love.
