About Swara:

The intent of Swara Yoga Academy is for all students of the 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training to acquire an intuitive knowledge of yoga methods and practices. When teaching our aim is for you to trust your intuition rather than focusing on the information. More feeling, less thinking.

Students will learn about Yoga and its practices, but more importantly will have direct experience. Knowledge and experience lead to wisdom.

You will notice that what happens on the mat is strictly connected with every day’s life. Therefore, yoga teaches us about the flow and grace of being alive. This kind of yoga can open the way for intelligent and intuitive teaching.

Your Teacher:

Randall O’Leary

Randall has been a dedicated explorer of Yoga since 1991. Alongside his studies of classical Hatha Yoga, Randall has studied a variety of styles including Iyengar, Jivamukti and most importantly Viniyoga. Viniyoga is a style of traditional, personalised yoga therapy practice and Randall weaves in Viniyoga methods to all his classes.

Randall began teaching in 1995 and quickly realised how important it is that each person practices the yoga that suits their needs and goals. In the last 10 years, he has focused his attention on learning Ayurveda, a traditional medical system from India. With this additional knowledge, he is further able to help individuals find balance, health and happiness through yogic  practice and lifestyle.

Randall believes that yoga and Ayurveda can be vital keys to a life well-lived, if only people knew the techniques and methods. His teaching is based around the “Art of Living” that is Yoga and Ayurveda. He shares this ancient wisdom in each and every class that he teaches, in order to provide tools that students can use in their daily life.

Randall’s teaching style is primarily focused on cultivating an breath-based asana practice that builds and sustains a high level of Prana: the vital life-force energy. Inspired through his studies of Tai Chi and Viniyoga, He teachers his unique approach to breath and movement, which he called Swara Yoga.

Having worked with yoga students for over 30 years, he has encountered a vast variety of different people and learned many ways of helping them grow and change through yoga. It is his aim to inspire every student to pursue a practice that is balanced, healthy and transformative, a yoga that spreads out into their world and positively transforms their relationship with life on every level.
