Madhava lived six years at the Sivananda Yoga Ashram in London. He has taught in several of International Sivananda yoga teachers' training courses (TTC) in Europe. At the London ashram, he taught week-long residential courses in yoga anatomy and regular courses in meditation, vegetarian cooking, yoga philosophy, and daily yoga classes and workshops. He teaches with dynamism, precision, and care. His classes are meticulously prepared, intelligently executed, and engaging.


Shyamala lived as full-time voluntary staff in the Sivananda Ashram in London for two years. With the blessings of her master and yoga guru, she is very happy to return to Australia and be able to offer her experience through the yoga classes in Byron Bay. Whilst working to deepen her yoga practice in all aspects, she taught once or twice daily yoga classes, pregnancy yoga, yoga courses, meditation, and yoga philosophy.

I can't say how much I enjoyed the new years' retreat at White Lotus. I came home feeling rested, happy and positive. Madhava and shyamala have created a wonderful environment for the retreat, they gently brought us along on the yoga journey through the weekend and I picked up so many great ideas for living and feeling better! Also I couldn't have asked for a nicer, more interesting group to 'retreat with', we had a lot of fun, laughter, and cameraderie, not to mention the beautiful meals we enjoyed together.

Loved the New Year's yoga retreat! No better way to spend New Year's than being at this retreat. The program was well-structured, yet relaxed, fun and definitely an eye opening experience for me. Particularly enjoyed the Kirtans, loved the Bansuri, loved the delicious yogic food, loved the group's energy. Madhava and Shyamala, you're both such experienced Sivananda Teachers I wish I live in Byron so I could take regular classes at White lotus. Nevertheless, I have experienced a wonderful and inspiring spectrum of yogic lifestyle which I intend to bring in to my daily life. Thank you Madhava and Shyamala for sharing your lifestyle, home, and all your wisdom with us. Hope to join you again soon! Om Shanti.

Madhava & Chamelas teachings and guided practice in the 5 points of yoga helped me immeasurably to overcome some great life challenges, and to step forwards into the life I'd always dreamed of. Our mind can be our greatest enemy, or our best friend. Thanks guys, we have to find the time to go surfing again soon, Madhava!

Thank you Madhava for the fantastic program you gave in London and Snowdonia. Your classes are like a journey within ourselves, you make us aware of each cell of our body. Your devotion and attention to details are incredible. I feel recharged and full of prana. It has been a real joy to see you, Shyamala and meet the gorgeous Jai. Thank you and Om Namah Sivaya Shyamala.

I participated in the positive thinking course and it was most enjoyable and inspiring. The teacher communicates the content very well and is very passionate about creating positive change in people's lives. I am looking forward to doing other courses with white lotus in the future.
