Svastha in Sanskrit refers to the state of complete health and balance. Svastha Yoga is yoga in its complete authentic form, a system which helps increase overall strength and flexibility, mental balance, concentration and inner peace. In the direct lineage of the “father of modern yoga”, the yogi Krishnamacharya, Svastha Yoga focuses on the needs of the individual, rather than a fixed style or form. With emphasis on breath-based rather than a posture-based (asana) practise, moving with and within the breath, we integrate the body, breath and mind. Together, they contribute to total health and wellbeing, and promote a peaceful and tranquil mind. This type of yoga is suitable for anyone, regardless of yoga level, age, physical or mental condition.
