Swami Vimalananda came to the teachings late in life. After working in China as an ESL teacher for thirteen years, she returned to Canada to become a resident at Yasodhara Ashram, working as a Hidden Language teacher and giving Yasodhara Yoga classes to private retreat guests. Her spiritual path led her to become a sanyasin in 2013 at the age of 85.
Swami Vimalananda’s university studies, involving several romance languages, and her knowledge of the mantric power of Sanskrit, has given her a deep sensitivity for the power of words.
