My Yogic journey

I am very grateful that Yoga has been a part of my life for the past 30 years. I have benefited from exceptional health and wellbeing. I have met some wonderfully inspiring and nurturing teachers who have been a guiding light.  The image below is taken outside my yoga studio.

I first discovered yoga on a trip to India in 1985 where I bought my first Yoga text by BKS Iyengar. I went on to study three main styles of Yoga. Iyengar Yoga which offered me the self discipline and precision. Hatha Yoga which gave me a deeper understanding of the depth and breadth encompassing the 8 limbs of Yoga with the Triad Yoga school. I was initiated as Swami Sovannanda of the Aranya order in 1993 after I completed my first Yoga Teachers qualification and then went on to study the vedic texts. In 2003 I built a yoga studio on our family property.  This image below is taken inside the studio.

To deepen my practise in 2004, I went on to study Yoga & Ayurveda as a Therapy levels I & II in India and Australia with Svastha Yoga and AG Mohan. I have practised Buddhist meditation techniques for over 30 years and enjoy visiting the Wat Buddha Dharma and the Buddhist Library in Camperdown.
