1 Aug – 25 Jan 2015:
6 months Gurukul Lifestyle Course

“Gurukul means family of the guru. Since ancient times in India, people
have come to live the gurukul lifestyle for different periods, and they
become part of the gurukul. In the gurukul the system of education is not
social education, but knowing about life. What one knows is not enough: one
has to live what one knows. In order to know how to live, lifestyle is
necessary.” —Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati

Yoga Classes

We continue to provide classes at different levels at various locations across the West Midlands.

We normally ask that students who are new to Satyananda Yoga join a beginners’ class for a short time at least, in order to learn the fundamentals of this system before progressing to more challenging courses.

Mahamrityunjaya Mantra

Come and join us in joyful singing and powerful mantra chanting, on the first Friday of each month, except August.

If the first Friday in the month falls close to a Public Holiday, you may wish to check by calling Prem on 0121 444 2590 beforehand.


At 6.30 pm, we focus on suffering Beings everywhere, naming those we particularly wish to remember, and together we chant Mahamrityunjaya Mantra, an ancient & powerful mantra for the relief of all suffering.

From 7.30 pm, we sing Kirtan together - joyful and heartfelt chants sung in unison or as ‘call and response’ invoking a deep sense of connectedness with our true nature.

Everyone is welcome to join us for either or both of these practices!

Paramahamsa Swami Satyananda, founder of the Bihar School of Yoga and Satyananda Yoga worldwide, left the body in December 2009 and attained Mahasamadhi. He left the mission in the hands of two extraordinary successors, Paramahamsa Swami Niranjanananda and Paramahamsa Swami Satyasangananda.


~ May good health, happiness, peace and prosperity be unto everyone ~

Swami Satyananda said, “If you want to befriend your mind, treat the whole world as your family and reach out to as many people as you can.”
