It is our aim at Swara Yoga Academy that all students of the 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training gain an intuitive knowledge of yoga methods and practices. We have a special method of teaching, which students gain knowledge through direct experience.
Our approach to teaching is more intuitive than informational, more feeling than thinking. Knowledge and experience lead to wisdom; students not only learn about the practices of yoga, but more importantly students learn about themselves and the yoga through direct experience.
From this foundation, yoga teaches us about the flow and grace of life. Yoga means ‘connection’ and the most important thing you can learn is how to connect what happens on the mat with what happens off the mat. It’s “The Yoga of Everyday Living”. This kind of yoga can then open the way for intelligent and intuitive teaching.
