Swami Sarasvati

1 9 6 8 – 1 9 7 8 (Australia)

Arriving in Australia from India in 1967, Swami Sarasvati became Australia’s foremost Yoga expert when she presented this 30-minute show five mornings a week on the TEN network.


With her heavily accented English, serene countenance, smiling face and bossy commands, Swami was a revelation in the finer art of elastic pretzel poses, combined with breathing deep, to housewives all over Australia.

Her show was repeated regularly for many years and Swami (as she prefers to be known) became a nationally recognisable name.

Swami gave up the show when she became pregnant with her son, Sanjay.
