"If you follow your heart's path, there are a few other things you have to go through. And sometimes I had to reinvent myself."
Sukadev Volker Bretz was trained as a yoga teacher at the Sivananda Yoga Centres in 1981 and studied with Swami Vishnu-Devananda for 12 years. Since 1983 he has been training yoga teachers himself. In 1992 he founded the non-profit Yoga Vidya e.V. with today over 80 locations throughout Germany in order to systematically teach holistic, lifelike yoga. Sukadev is 1. chairman of Yoga Vidya e.V., seminar and training leader, as well as author of several books. He is known for passing on his yoga knowledge in a competent and humorous way.
Sukadev is committed to the broad dissemination of classical, holistic yoga. The Yoga Vidya training locations, based on the Indian model, are geared towards the pursuit of yoga knowledge. Sukadev knows from experience that yoga knowledge is best learned when practice and theory are combined. All seminars, trainings and workshops at Yoga Vidya include yoga practice such as body and breathing exercises, meditation, mantra singing and vegetarian nutrition. By imparting knowledge in the form of a holistic philosophy of life, individual potentials can be developed. It is also helpful to focus on yoga and exchange with people within the spiritual community.
