Yogita Szykman

About us

In her early years, Yogita studied gymnastics which gave her a powerful awareness of the physical body. She also studied classical piano, awakening her soul and enhancing her sensitivity and love for music. In 2001, she began studying Ashtanga Yoga and in 2003 became a sports teacher.

In 2005, she traveled to India and actively searched for an engaging and comprehensive study of Yoga, but found only sporadic Yoga teachers offering classes in stretching, gymnastics, and breathing. In January 2006, Yogita went to visit her friend Mike Altmann who was studying Yoga on Koh Phangan and decided to try it. After just a single day of classes, Yogita realized that she had always harbored a yearning to learn precisely what was being taught at Agama. In March 2007, she completed the Agama Teacher Training Course and has taught Yoga and Tantra in Thailand, Israel, the Agama Yoga Center in India - Trika Yoga, Mexico, and Sweden since then. She teaches in English and Hebrew.

Yogita is grateful for the knowledge and skills which Agama has given her and regards it as a rare privilege and true vocation to pass these teachings on to others. Being a Yoga teacher has greatly increased her enthusiasm for spirituality and made her a stronger practitioner. In 2011, she started working with women on the sacred feminine and now leads the Shakti groups in Koh Phangan and manages many of the rituals and festivities at Agama Yoga Thailand.

Yogita appreciates Agama for the usefulness of its life philosophies, for its unique cleansing and purification procedures, and for the endlessly uplifting manner in which it integrates body, soul, mind and spirit. Thanks to the Agama teachings, she has managed to cure chronic ailments which bothered her for many years. She also appreciates the esoteric teachings of Kashmir Shivaism and Tantric practices.

Yogita is eternally grateful for Swami Vivekananda Saraswati who stands behind this amazing Yoga school. His devotion and dedication for the Yoga teaching has been an endless source of inspiration on her path as a disciple and teacher.
