Swami Vedantananda Saraswati began practising yoga at the age of sixteen. She 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 lives in Portugal where she offers a variety of yoga and meditation retreats.
