Sivananda Yoga of Shri Swami Vishnu Devanandaji


More about me:

i bought a used paperback for 10 cents in 1981, written by one of Shri Swami Sivanandaji's students. Right away I started everything - asana, meditation, silence, fasting. I did this for many years on my own. Around 1990 I started taking classes at an Iyengar studio in Maryland. I took classes there for 2 1/2 years of Asana only. Then I had a stroke at aged 47 because of some congenital health complications. I could not remember anything or talk or hear very easily. I was very distraught. One day I fell asleep and dreamt that I was swimming in some very beautiful ocean water, under the water with the sun penetrating everywhere. It was incredibly peaceful and beautiful. When I woke up, on the floor there was an upside down Yoga Journal Magazine with the picture of the Sivananda Ashram in the Bahamas. I went there at Thanksgiving in 1991 to heal my body and spirit and did TTC there in 1995.


My Favorite Quote/What inspires me:

"Yoga is not the waving of the arms and the legs." Swami Sivananda "Do not confuse lumbago for the rising of the Kundalini."- Swami Sivananda "God is Prem." from Prema Yoga

  • Hi Rukmini,
    I was staff briefly in India in 1996. I met a lot of people from Uruguay and Argentina on the Yatra there - where you one of them? I note from the comment below that you knew Swami Shanmugananda. He was one of the main teachers on TTC and then I worked with him in the Bahamas and Canada - very inspiring and a great leader.
    Where are you based now?
    Om Shanti
  • Yes, Rukmini-ji, the same Shanmugananda was running the Yoga Retreat in 1990. He is now in Spain. His website address is www.yogacentersc.es

    our website is www.sivayogadivine.net You are blessed to come across the teachings os Swami Sivananda

    OM Shanti
    Swamiji
