Svastha Yoga Principles

According to the Classical texts1, the goal of a yoga practice is personal transformation - reducing the fluctuations of the ever moving mind. 

We can achieve this through yogic mindfulness, practicing simple and if necessary more demanding postures/movements within a soft and even breath. We include breathing exercises and sound. We enjoy the resulting mental steadiness in moments of silence, relaxation and deep contemplation.

A regular practice improves our physical strength and flexibility, supports deep and even breathing and can also positively influence any complaints we might have. Mental stability and eveness can generally increase and support us in our daily life.

  • Anyone can start yoga at any time.
    "If you can breath, you can do yoga!", Sri Krishnamarcharya
  • Each practitioner is gradually introduced to yoga according to his/her physical and psychological capabilities.
  • We pay attention to an anatomically correct and but individually adjusted execution.
  • There is no pressure to perform and we leave room for personal experiences and the individual expansion of possible limits.
  • Each participant practices independently, but under our attentive guidance, which prevents injuries and increases your scope.
