Swami Vishnudevananda Asana Photos
Swami Vishnudevananda was made the Hatha Yoga Professor at the age of 18 upon arriving at the Sivananda Ashram in Rishikesh, India.
He said that all of his past life knowledge of hatha yoga came back to him when Swami Sivananda initiated him and touched his third eye.
