Swami Durgananda’s natural teaching manner is of warmth, creativity and authenticity. Her classes emphasise creating harmony between the moving, thinking and feeling centres of being. Students learn how to listen to their body and innerworld as they explore flowing vinyasas, naturally aligned static postures, breathing techniques and deep relaxations. Her teaching combines the many different aspects of yoga and encourages exploring the connections and relationships between body, mind, heart, breath, energy and awareness.

Durgananda believes that: 

·         The key to yoga is finding a practice that works for each individual, as everyone is unique and changing moment to moment.
·         Yoga is all about becoming conscious of these movements within and without and learning the different techniques in order to become more Self-aware.
·         Yoga empowers. It uplifts. It teaches each person how to listen to their own inner voice and follow the inner energy, the Shakti.
·         A complete yoga integrates the peace, wisdom and aliveness found ‘on the mat’ into everyday living.

Durgananda has been studying and practising yoga and meditation since 1995, following a daily schedule of meditation, yoga, self-inquiry, chanting, study and service.

what people are saying about Swami Durgananda Gabrielle Nolle


Studying with Durgananda was amazing; I loved every single lesson, the others in the class and the knowledge. I am surprised that I want to know more, that I want to practice more. This attitude is very new for me. I really loved the simple but powerful way that the yoga was taught and am grateful to have studied yoga in this lineage. I accept myself and others more, and for that I really thank you.


I really enjoyed the yoga teacher training with Durgananda and have learnt a great deal about all aspects of yoga. The course has also taught me a lot about meditation, self-reflection and spiritual growth. I am looking forward to taking the lessons I have learned and incorporating them into my life's journey.
