My name is Matsyendra Saraswati, I have been journeying to the East, for as long as I can remember.

My first encounter with Yoga was in India, in the late eighties. The profound experiences on my spiritual path, led me to the ashram of Swami Janakananda, the oldest living disciple of Swami Satyananda in Sweden, secluded deep in a Swedish forest , where I stayed for over ten years and explored the depth and breadth of the practices of yoga.

In Copenhagen and Danmark I ran an independant yoga space for several years before relocating to Amsterdam in 2013. In Amsterdam and here at Mangalam Meditation & Yoga, I share Hatha Yoga with an emphasise on the meditational practices, such as Antar Mouna, Ajapa Jap and Yoga Nidra,in classes, workshops and a Yoga Nidra teacher training.
