About Swami Vedantanada Saraswati

She began practicing yoga at the age of sixteen and studied with several teachers before meeting her Guru, Swami Satyananda Saraswati, in 1983 and was initiated into poorna sannyasa in 1985.

Since that turning point in her life she has taught yoga in many areas of society, specialising in teaching yoga to children, in-service training and teacher training. She is a respected and much loved yoga teacher whose humour shines through her love of living yoga. Her teaching is recognised by its practical and down to earth approach.

Swami Vedantananda is currently living in Portugal where she offers a variety of yoga and meditation retreats.

Through the practice of Yoga Nidra we are not only relaxing, but restructuring and reforming our whole personality from within.”
