Sanyamatma

first encountered yogis while travelling around India in 1998. Soon after, he bought an 'around the world ticket' and spent a year immersing himself in yoga, living in ashrams and experiencing yogic lifestyle. First he attended a four month residential course at the world renowned Bihar School of Yoga, India; where the disciplined daily structure, practical training and spiritual discourses had a profound impact, transforming his outlook on life. He then spent several months in Ashrams in Australia and New Zealand before returning to the Bihar School of Yoga, India on his return journey to Scotland.

Over the following years, Sanyamatma has attended many additional residential courses in India and elsewhere and visits the main ashrams in NE India as often as possible to offer seva (service to the ashram’s mission) and receive guidance from his Guru, Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati.
From 2003-2005, he underwent extensive Satyananda Yoga teacher training with Swami Pragyamurti, during which time he lived and worked in the Satyananda Yoga Centre in London.

Sanyamatma continues to be amazed by the transformative power that yogic techniques and lifestyle changes can have on health, mental attitude and energy levels. It is his hope and aim to inspire students in their own transformations and provide the yogic tools to aid this ongoing process.

He has a passion for the meditation techniques of trataka (candle gazing) and mantra japa, and runs a business designing and manufacturing specialist yoga products.

Atmasangita

Started practising yoga at the age of 16 (28years ago!) and has completed Satyananda Yoga/Bihar Yoga teacher training in Ireland, Australia and London.

Atmasangita has spent time in Satyananda Yoga centres and ashrams around the world, but mainly Rikhia and Munger ashram in India, living the daily quietly disciplined ashram life under the presence of Swami Satyananda, Swami Niranjan and Swami Satsangi. She regularly travels to the ashrams in India with her family and students to immerse in the blissful and empowering experience of ashram living.

As a teenager she was exposed to Satyananda Yoga so has experienced first hand the profound stabilising and balancing affect that yoga and meditation has on children and family life.

She is also very interested in the physical, emotional and spiritual healing process. As a young child, she spent time in hospital recovering from a road traffic accident which later led to post traumatic stress. Using the yogic healing system of prana vidya and her reiki/seicheim training, she has healed herself and has treated many other people over the years.

Spiritual awakening and developing awareness on all our many levels through the many paths of yoga is her passion for living.

Atmasangita received karma sannyasa diksha from Swamiji Niranjanananda in France 2005 and endeavours to keep true to his teachings through the system of yoga propagated by the Bihar School of Yoga and inspire as many open hearted and open minded students as she can.
