Uddhava Samman

One of the co-founders of The Traditional Yoga Association®, Uddhava continues to teach in the Reading area. He teaches general Yoga classes but is particularly interested in teaching those for whom Yoga is very often out of reach: people with disabilities or physical problems that would prevent them from entering a mainstream class.

Uddhava teaches a weekly Yoga class for people with Multiple Sclerosis and other health conditions at the Berkshire MS Therapy Centre. He is a Yoga Therapist and teaches private classes in Reading and the surrounding area. He is a member of REPs (Register of Exercise Professionals). As well as Yoga, Uddhava also teaches meditation and chanting.

“During the past twenty years I have been both a student and a teacher of Yoga. I trained in Yoga Therapy with Swami Ambikananda and completed my Yoga Teacher Training (500 hours programme) in 1995. I also studied Integrative Yoga Therapy in the USA. Yoga has brought about a profound healing and transformation within myself and through teaching I am able to observe this process happening in my students. I encourage my students to listen to and to become acutely aware of themselves rather than applying force to achieve a goal. This focus on the process - the means rather than the end – that is so much a core of Swami Ambikananda´s teaching, makes Yoga accessible to all and opens up a deep spiritual connection through a physical activity.”
