One of the great gurus of our times is Swami Satyananda, the founder of the Bihar School of Yoga, one of the most important organizations dedicated to spreading Yoga in the world. Even though swamis from the order have been coming to United States for years, it was only recently that an organization was founded to formally represent Satyananda’s teachings in USA: the North American Gurukul. Vishalakshi speaks in this show about this great guru and his teachings.
Vishalakshi has been an active yoga practitioner for 20 years and is certified as a teacher of Satyananda Yoga by the Bihar School of Yoga (BSY), India. She is on the Board of Trustees of Atma Darshan Yogashram and has managed a yoga studio in Bangalore, India since 2001, conducting programs, corporate workshops and residential retreats. Her articles have appeared in YOGA magazine as well as the leading Indian newspapers.
Having moved to North America in 2008, Vishalakshi wants to play an active role in the spread of Satyananda Yoga across the continent, keeping in mind the mission of her Guru of spreading yoga from “door to door and shore to shore”. She is currently the President of North American Gurukul Inc.
