About us

THIS IS NOT YOUR AVERAGE YOGA TEACHER TRAINING. 

Swastha Yoga International is an integrated yoga teacher training program rooted in the practice of Yoga, based in science of Ayurvedic Medicine, and expanded through Human Potential growth and transformation principles. With this holistic approach, we cultivate practices that increase health and wellness on ALL levels of our Being.  We are thrilled with the direction of our program and with the results thus far - and we are excited to share this with YOU!

IF YOU ARE SOMEONE WHO IS:

  • Hungry for change and desires an opportunity to be part of something bigger than yourself...

  • Willing to get underneath the superficial layers of a yoga practice (what we see) and enhance your yoga practice both on and off the mat (what we don't see)...

  • Interested in understanding and unearthing the true "power" of a yoga practice...

  • Cognizant of the importance of integrated health (not just on a physical level) and is interested in cultivating optimal wellbeing on all levels (physical, emotional, mental/cognitive)...

  • Aware that consciously evolving your being, your practices, and your relationships are all essential components of having a successful life and being an effective teacher...

  • Passionate about continually expanding your knowledge, skills, awareness and capabilities (ie. being a student)...

  • Committed to contributing to others in a deeply meaningful way...

...THEN THIS YOGA TEACHER TRAINING IS FOR YOU.

This program is an approved 200 hour Yoga Alliance certified school (RYS). Together, the teachers have over 30 years of teaching experience, are E-RYT 500, YACEP, and C-IAYT qualified through Yoga Alliance and International Association of Yoga Therapy respectively. Upon completion of the program, our graduates are eligible to apply for 200 hr Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) status by contacting yogaalliance.org for registration.

WE FOCUS ON CREATING STRONG, INSPIRATIONAL LEADERS IN THE FIELD OF YOGA...AND IN LIFE!

This is an Intensive Training Immersion Program that goes well beyond the typical training topic of physical postures, anatomy, and alignment, and has a strong personal development aspect.  It has the potential to provide you with the tools for powerful, effective and sustainable changes through your willingness to being a student and trusting the process. If you are not open to, nor interested in, truly reflecting on your behaviours and patterns, then this program may not be a fit for you at this time.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

To reconnect with my inner self, found ground through the movement of my body and breath. Awake. Jane

Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
