Narendra Bharwaney (Brahmananda)

Brahmananda Yoga Teacher at Grempoli Retreat

Brahmananda was born in Africa to Indian parents and now lives in London. He has been involved with yoga for 30 years and teaching for 15 years. He was director and course coordinator of the Satyananda Yoga Academy Europe until recently stepping down. Since 1988, in order to further his studies and expand his experience, he has regularly spent time in ashrams in India attending programs and immersing himself in karma yoga. Brahmananda has worked as a special needs educator and mental health social worker for over 15 years. During this period, he adapted and employed yoga and meditation techniques to help address the spectrum of needs in this environment.
He runs regular courses and programs in the UK and abroad, on various aspects of yoga; in particular, pranayama, meditation and yoga nidra, yoga psychology and the chakras and yantra drawing and painting. Exploring yantra’s deeper transformative effects on the personality is his main area of interest at present.
Brahmananda’s down to earth approach and deep understanding of yogic principles, combined with his Indian heritage and English humour, makes his teachings unique, being extremely clear, of high level and, at the same time, accessible.
