“There is no noise in the world.
There is no peace in the Himalayas.
Both are within you.”

Swami Satyananda

“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.”

Swami Sivananda

“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.”

Swami Niranjanananda

“Love beautifies the giver and elevates the receiver.”

Swami Sivananda

“Look within.
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.”

Swami Sivananda

“The attitude of faith is the stairway to heaven.
So never be a fatalist. Always have faith in yourself.”

Swami Niranjanananda

"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.”

Swami Niranjanananda

“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.”

Swami Satyananda

A session with Andrea is the perfect antidote to the modern world. I come away from her classes with a calmer mind and increased energy.”

Jennie Moore

I always look forward to Andrea’s amazing and unique yoga sessions. She is so dedicated, wise and kind and her extremely beneficial classes leave me feeling physically, spiritually and emotionally uplifted. Her calmness is so nurturing that experiencing her range of classes within the week is like going on a mini retreat. I feel privileged that Andrea has been my yoga teacher for over 4 years, as she has helped me through emotional and health challenges during that time."

Christine Allen
