Sw. Yogamanas has taught Satyananda yoga, a systematic integrated and meditative style of yoga, with an emphasis on awareness in all aspects of practice since 2000, 17 of those years on a full-time basis.
Starting the daily sadhana and study of yoga and meditation in 1996, following 10 years of martial arts, he has been blessed with great teachers that put him in good stead for teaching in a variety of settings. Some of these settings include institutions – from early childhood centres and schools to AFP and prisons, for sports people – footballers to athletes, private clients – in their homes, live via the web – for international corporate clients, many government departments and workplaces, ashrams – dedicated yoga centres, and various workshops and retreats.
Aspects of a class include Mantra, Asana, Pranayama, Yoga Nidra, and Meditation. There are other aspects not mentioned here from the various branches of yoga e.g Nada, Bhakti, Kriya etc. that will be utilised as appropriate.
Classes aim to balance and focus energy, the body, mind, emotions and spirit. Often we are reactive and habitual – limiting our experience. With the practice of yoga, you become the conscious knower of yourself – an expansive experience.
