About Sharing and Learning Yoga
Sharing and Learning Yoga is an independent social enterprise dedicated to making a systematic traditional approach to yoga available for those who in need of it and those who seek to develop yoga as part of their lifestyle.
Commencing in 2018 Sharing and Learning Yoga will offer courses and other resources such as books and films that support yoga practitioners develop their knowledge and practice.
Swami Vimalratna is known internationally for his work as a yoga course developer, including the development of yogic studies and teacher training courses, and as complier of the book Yoga with Attitude. He has extensive experience as an educator and yoga teacher.
In recent years he has developed skills as an animator and filmmaker and has received his doctorate on the topic “How may cultural wisdom be understood and shared?” He brings these skills to this new project, but more than this, the work emerges from 25 years of yoga practice, reflection and exploration.
About the tradition and lineage
All yoga material presented in this site is inspired by the teachings of Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati and the lineage of sannyasin teachers who preceded him. This yoga is sometimes referred to as the Satyananda system of Yoga. It is an integrated system that offers a full range of practices and concepts, based solidly in classic yoga, as part of a dynamic living tradition.
“Yoga is an ancient system of philosophy, lifestyle and techniques, by which we evolve the whole person, the physical, the vitality, the mind and emotions, the wisdom and psychic qualities, our ethics and relationships, and the realisation of our spiritual reality.”
Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati
