foundation yoga teacher training

This is an Education/Training for Yoga stu­dents that want an in-depth explo­ration, edu­ca­tion and per­son­al growth in the tra­di­tions of Hatha Yoga. Hatha Yoga is the gen­er­al term applied to any prac­tices of Yoga that involve Asanas, Pranaya­ma (breath­work), Med­i­ta­tion, Kriyas (inner cleans­ing), Mudras, Devo­tion and the under­ly­ing Philoso­phies for approach­ing an inner and out­er life.

The Svarū­pa Foun­da­tion Yoga Teacher Train­ing (FYT) gives stu­dents an in-depth study and prac­tice of the Hatha Tra­di­tion. Asana is pre­sent­ed in dynam­ic form but with an under­stand­ing of align­ment, mod­i­fi­ca­tions and adjustments.
