Yoga came into Locana’s life in 1976, when she was studying at Centre de l’Epanouissement de l’Etre in Le Lotus Yoga Centre in Montreal with Swami Shaddhananda, in the lineage of Swami Sivananda of Rishikesh, India.
Since then, Locana has never stopped learning. Initiated in 1998 into the Sannyasin path, her initiatory name, Swami Locananda, reflects her commitment to the traditional Raja Yoga path. The spiritual quest is at the heart of her daily life.
Today, in addition to training Yoga and Yogatherapy teachers, she has created, with Juliette Dumas, the Mudra School to transmit this ancient art and science of sacred gestures, simple and beneficial gestures that are often referred to as finger yoga.
Her studies have allowed her to deepen her knowledge of yoga and the science of Mudra. She is particularly interested in the therapeutic aspects of yoga.
For several years, she has been integrating Raja Yoga and Hatha Yoga, in a vision of the body which becomes a field of experimentation and explanation of Life. The symbolism of the human body, the hidden and sacred meaning of the asanas are the foundations of her practice and teaching.
For Locana, yoga is an art of living in everyday life.
