Swamji-Signing-Book-s

In the 1970’s and 80’s, people in Greece, and elsewhere, knew very little about yoga. In order to inform the public about the subject, Swami Sivamurti Saraswati and the sannyasins of the tradition undertook the major task of disseminating yoga in Greece by translating and publishing books, and releasing audio-visual material related to Satyananda yoga.

The printing press, based at the ashram, contributed significantly to the spread of Satyananda Yoga in Greece and the Balkans, with hundreds of books printed and distributed during this period.

Books, magazines, booklets and other printed material have since been published creating a wealth of literature around the SATYANANDA YOGA® tradition and the Sannyasa tradition.

A number of CDs have been produced in the Greek language on yoga nidra, and other meditation techniques.

DVDs from satsangs and lectures of Sri Swami Satyananda Saraswati and Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati have been produced with Greek subtitles, as well as DVDs on ashram life, which have been made available to the public both in English and in Greek.
