“There is no noise in the world.
There is no peace in the Himalayas.
Both are within you.”
“Listen to silence.
It has so much to say.”
“Love expects no reward. Love knows no fear.
Love Divine gives - does not demand. Love thinks no evil; imputes no motive.
To Love is to share and serve.”
“Yogic lifestyle is not defined by how many hours of Yoga
and Meditation you practise. That is irrelevant.
Yogic lifestyle is the concept of living a
harmonious and correct form of life.”
“Love beautifies the giver and elevates the receiver.”
Within you is the hidden God.
Within you is the immortal soul.
Within you is the inexhaustible spiritual treasure.
Within you is the ocean of bliss.
Look within for the happiness which you have sought in vain.”
“The attitude of faith is the stairway to heaven.
So never be a fatalist. Always have faith in yourself.”
"Yoga is not an ancient myth buried in oblivion.
It is the most valuable inheritance of the present.
It is the essential need of today and the culture of tomorrow."
Swami Satyananda Saraswati
“Believe in yourself. Know that you have the strength,
the ability, the courage and the will to transform yourself.
The best way to reach this point is through silence,
not through logic or intellect, or questions or discussion.”
“Love is the source, and, Love is the destination.
Although Love may change along it’s path; Love
is omnipresent, omniscient and omnipotent.
Therefore, seek only Love, and return it to source, with Love.”
Swami Vishwamandala Saraswati
“Give Evolution a chance.”
Andrea's yoga journey
Andrea moved to Yorkshire in 1997 and completed a British Wheel of Yoga Foundation course in 2002 and later embarked on the BWY Teaching Diploma, qualifying in July 2005, and has been teaching weekly classes in the Harrogate area, and workshops around the UK since May 2003.
More recently Andrea became influenced and inspired by The Bihar School of Yoga, which offers a more holistic and scientifically researched approach to the practice of yoga in life. In 2004 Andrea met her Guru Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati taking Diksha initiation in 2006, Jignasu 2007, Karma Sannyasin 2008 and Poorna Sannyasin in 2009. Her spiritual name is Swami Vishwamandala Saraswati, and she has participated in charity work in the form of Seva and Karma Yoga (Selfless Service) in India since 2007.
