Swami Yogamani Saraswati

About us

Director of Manipura Yoga Centre. Swami Yogamani Saraswati has been involved with the ancient art and science of Yoga and Meditation for over 37 Years.

Her yogic journey began after a fall from a horse at a young age, leaving her with spinal damage. She has both studied and taught extensively here, in Australia and India. She continues to teach across all areas of life from the absolute beginner to the advanced practitioner.

She teaches appropriately to suit the audience,  safe, practical, yet achievable blend of practises that reshape,  the complete personality. Promoting calm so one can live in ease. Passionate about sharing transformational tools for life, her sessions draw from a vast range of practises from physical postures to breath work, meditation and balanced lifestyle. Providing a platform for self responsibility, for ones own health. Yoga more as a lifestyle, that just a weekly exercise. Swami Yogamani also leads a variety of retreats annually and to India. Providing an opportunity to join her, and experience the deeper aspects of yoga and humanitarian work, (Seva, selfless service) in its homeland.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Reconnecting with myself after a very crazy few months with a new baby! Just having that feeling of being grounded again. But also having an opportunity to connect with new amazing people. Getting exposed and Inspired by new (to me) yoga instructors (and community). Being in the presence of real, authentic and raw emotion (the whole spectrum).. So many reasons! Alyson

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
