I am proud to introduce to you Swamini Shraddhananda Saraswati. SwaminiJi is the founder and primary teacher of Kula Kamala Foundation & Yoga Ashram, a 501c3 nonprofit organization. She is a monk in the Sivananda Order of Sannyasins and a 500E-RYT registered with Yoga Alliance. She began practicing yoga in her early twenties and has found it to be a continually transformative, reaffirming and uplifting lifestyle, one which continues to help her integrate and connect more deeply.
Some topics we discuss during the podcast are:
- When you put your mind to something, you get the job done. (2:19)

- How did you build your own temple? (52:50)
- Understanding vs. intellectual knowledge. (58:34)

With thousands of hours of advanced study in Yoga and its adjuncts, SwaminiJi authored and directs 200YTT, 300YTT, 870PYT, hospital based Yoga Therapy programs, and curriculum for Yoga in primary schools, in addition to other specialty training curriculum such as Goddess Based Wisdom and Tantra as a Practical Healing Methodology.
For over 12 years, SwaminiJi has worked with abused and neglected children, at-risk teens, women in crisis, and individuals seeking spiritual clarity in their life and relationships.
SwaminiJi’s experience and knowledge as a teacher, guide and advisor are grounded in decades of education, application, experience, research, and reflection. Personally and professionally, SwaminiJi abides in principals and guidelines that are grounded in non-harming, empathy, compassionate discipline, and the acquisition of meaningful life skills.
In addition to her skill and education in Yoga and Yoga Therapy, SwaminiJi holds a PhD in Anthropology and has held the position of Professor of Yoga and Meditation (Georgian Court University) and Professor of Cultural and Evolutionary Anthropology (Temple University and Monmouth University). She has published scholarly articles on ancient human diet and its relationship to health and socio-political issues.
SwaminiJi enjoys self expression and creativity. An artist in several mediums, she writes daily and has published books of poetry and reflection.
SwaminiJi is available to provide satsangs, blessings and trainings at local and regional centers, yoga studios, retreat centers, and events. To request SwaminiJi speak at one of your events, please contact the Ashram office at 484-509-5073 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
