Hatha yoga is a branch of yoga derived from one of the six schools of Hinduism. It is the science of yoga which purifies the whole physical body by means of shatkarma (six cleansing practices), asana (postures), pranayama (breathing practices), mudra (seals), bandha (locks) and concentration, as a prelude to raja (or kingly) yoga and samadhi (higher state of awareness commonly referred to as “bliss”). All of which are explored during your teacher training program in various forms.

My 200 hour RYT with Swadhyaya was a positively shifting moment in my life! This rigorous program has provided a wealth of knowledge that encourages me to delve deeper into Yoga. Mimi and Brianna are extremely committed and passionate teachers/healers. Their presence is a walking testament of their practice - exuding peace and warmth. The program is demanding but with constant guidance and encouragement throughout the journey. Teachers are accessible for individual discussions to aid any further specific guidance. The setting is wonderfully integrated with nature allowing one to feel more conscious connections coinciding with the philosophical teachings. The curriculum touches base on the practice holistically - including philosophy, anatomy, methodology, and business. Overall class structure/material chronology is mindfully sequenced to facilitate student’s natural learning progression. Parallel asana/teacher practice aids integration of esoteric materials covered in class. Highly recommend Swadhyaya to anyone looking to exponentially expand their knowledge of Yoga! I look forward to continue my 300 hour RYT journey with them!
