Yasodhara Ashram has a long-standing connection with Budapest thanks to the initiative of Frances Becker who first moved to the city to teach yoga during its time of great transition in 1993, and remained there, living and teaching for fifteen years.

Frances and other Yasodhara Yoga teachers continue to visit the city and offer classes, workshops and satsangs whenever these can be arranged.




We are most grateful to the Sivananda Centre, and especially its director, Omkara, for the warm welcome Yasodhara Yoga has also found there. 

The centre has grown with the addition of a large new yoga room. Meanwhile many consistent students and teachers there have continued to flourish and grow in self understanding.





Copies of Swami Radha’s Rádhá – Egy asszony útkeresésének naplója and Hatha jóga, a rejtett nyelv. – Szimbólumok, titkok és metaforák can be purchased both on line and at the Sivananda Centre.









Julia Lock is a continuing presence in Budapest. First introduced to Yasodhara Yoga by Frances, she has been hosting workshops and classes for many years. She continues to support the work through her hospitality and warm welcome.




Frances Becker has been a Yoga practitioner since 1979. Her introduction to Swami Radha’s teachings came in 1985 with a Sacred Dance Workshop at Yasodhara Ashram and she took  the Yoga Development Course (YDC) in 1988. She has been teaching and studying Yoga ever since, both in the USA and Europe and  first visited Budapest in October of 1990.

“I offer these Teachings because I know their preciousness. Swami Radha has given their transforming possibilities to the world.’ Frances Becker
