Stephen Brandon has studied Yoga under some outstanding teachers from Sri T. Krishnamacharya’s lineage since 1999. Stephen trained in Viniyoga with Ranju Roy and Paul Harvey for 7 years, with Srivatsa Ramaswami since 2007 and has attended workshops and seminars with T.K. Sribhashyam, TKV Desikachar and A.G. and Indra Mohan,
Since 2007, Stephen has trained extensively in Vinyasa Krama Yoga and Yoga Philosophy with Srivatsa Ramaswami in India, the USA and the UK and maintains a personal practice in Yoga and Ayurveda.
Stephen has stayed as close to the source as possible by studying with Krishnamacharyas’ direct students, or student’s that had received direct teaching only from these disciples.
He is also qualified in Ayurveda and is a member of the Ayurvedic Practitioners Association and the Complementary Medical Association.
The teachers he has learnt Ayurveda with, Dr Deepa Apte and Dr Vasant Lad, are both Indian and were classically trained.
“The successful Ayurvedic practitioner is not the one who heals the most patients, but the one who teaches his patients to heal themselves.”
Stephen is the author with Charles Cox of The Vinyasa Krama Yoga Practice Manual.
