Swami Durgananda
(Yoga Alliance Platinum membership, Master Yoga teacher and Teacher Trainer course provider)
Swami Durgananda believes that:
o       The key to yoga is finding a practice that works for each individual, as everyone is unique and changing moment to moment.
o       Yoga is all about becoming conscious of these movements within and without and learning the different techniques in order to become more Self-aware.
o       Yoga empowers. It uplifts. It teaches each person how to listen to their own inner voice and follow the inner energy, the Shakti.
o       A complete yoga integrates the peace, wisdom and aliveness found ‘on the mat’ into everyday living.
Swami Durgananda has been studying and practising yoga and meditation since 1995, following a daily schedule of meditation, yoga, self-inquiry, chanting, study and service.
