A Shining Light
‘The only basis of true and lasting unity of all humanity is the religion of the heart. Religion of the heart is the religion of love.’ Sri Swami Sivananda
When I read this quote by our great Guru Swami Sivananda, it is thoughts of Swami Govindananda that immediately come to mind. Swami Ji has more than 23 years experience of teaching yoga and Vedanta philosophy, has graduated thousands of fledgling yoga teachers and has a heart full of love. I first met Swami Ji on my first teacher-training course to become a yoga teacher in Madurai, Tamil nadu, where he sparked a fire within me that certainly has continued to burn and grow. I had never been in an ashram before and was amazed by just how much love and knowledge were enveloping me. He shared with us all messages from his guru’s Swami Sivananda and Swami Vishnudevananda and turned my curiosity of yoga and Vedanta into a deep passion in my daily life. How can you thank someone enough for that? For giving so much joy and peace, isn’t that the highest thing you can give.
Swami Ji founded the Sivananda Yoga Vidya Peetham organisation and is working alongside Swami Tatwarupananda and Swami Nivedanananda to bring more teacher training, yoga camps and courses on Vedanta; planting seeds in the many who come to him and filling their hearts with love and contentment.

The next teacher training course level one starts Nov 4th until Dec 2nd 2012
You will have an amazing inner journey with Swami Govindananda that I can guarantee, waking up your inner potentials, rising to the challenge and shinning from within.
Om shanti shanti shanti
