Svastha yoga an integrated approach, where students are supported and guided with practices that meet their individual needs. The practice emphasises functional movement combined with breathing and mindfulness to cultivate a healthy body and a calm mind.
This is a simple yet profound practice that meets each student exactly where they are and facilitates positive change, whether that be by improving physical strength & flexibility, improving the function of bodily systems (respiratory, digestive etc.), or becoming calmer and clearer in the mind.
Barbara teaches one group ‘general health and fitness’ class per week, with the rest of her teaching being outside of the typical ‘studio’ environment where she meets students on a one-to-one basis, guiding them in developing a personal practice that addresses their peronal needs and goals. These private yoga lessons are vital for anyone wishing to integrate yoga into their life, or where they have specific needs such as an injury or post-surgery rehabilitation etc.
Whether a personal session or group class, Svastha Yoga encourages an environment where you can tune into where you are today, listen to your own body and breath, and practice in a manner that makes sense to you.
With a regular Svastha yoga practice, you can expect to see improved movement & postural patterns, agility and strength. You will also notice more contentment and peace of mind, clarity of thought and the ability to maintain equanimity in daily encounters.
“Svastha has allowed an easiness in both my body and mind that extends well beyond the time in class and I could not ask for more than that.” ~ Fiona Gordon

The essence of Krishnmacharya’s teaching is that yoga is for everyone, however, the practice must consider each person’s uniqueness and therefore adapt to suit individual requirements.
